I will practice healthy habits in nutirtion and fitness each day.
I will reach my goal weight in 2011, one day at a time.
I will become strong and fit!
I am doing cardio 5x a week for at least 3o minutes. I plan to work up to 1 hour per day, 5x/week.
I am doing regular strength training - at least 3x week, alternating muscle groups.
I am writing down everything I eat.
I am keeping my calories under 1500.
I am eating at least 5 fruits and veggies per day.
I am drinking 8-9 glasses of water per day.
Although I've always struggled with my weight, I've been at a normal weight most of my adult life. Due to a number of situations, my weight has gotten out of control and I've been in a rut. I am now out of the rut and taking daily action to get back to a healthy weight!
Hey Katie, welcome to the Reconnected team. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I was engulfed in the end of the fiscal year at work.
We are exactly what you mentioned. A small group of women that found eachother here on sparkpeople and have stuck together over the last 3-4 years, holding eachother up, encouraging, listening and sharing...getting reconnected to our lifes, eachother, etc.
There is a main discussion on there, so please come pop in and introduce yourself, we'd love to hear from you and help to support and encourage you!

The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me.
