My journey to a healthier and happier me

I began this journey April 2010 at my highest weight ever: 165 lbs, not good on my small 5'1" frame. I was out of shape and unhappy. I hated even looking in a mirror when I was dressed. Then I found Spark. And I found a healthy lifestyle. Over the course of the next 4 1/2 months I lost 30 lbs. I maintained for over a year, then we moved home to St. Louis, and I was unable to find a teaching job, though I really enjoyed my "new" job as stay-at-home mom/housewife.

I began this journey April 2010 at my highest weight ever: 165 lbs, not good on my small 5'1" frame. I was out of shape and unhappy. I hated even looking in a mirror when I was dressed. Then I found Spark. And I found a healthy lifestyle. Over the course of the next 4 1/2 months I lost 30 lbs. I maintained for over a year, then we moved home to St. Louis, and I was unable to find a teaching job, though I really enjoyed my "new" job as stay-at-home mom/housewife. Slight problem, I was way less active than I was previously and since I was home I was much more tempted to eat. I got back on Spark and lost 10 lbs and over the last two years I have yo-yo'ed up and down until I've gained back 25 of the 30 I lost. It's time to start fresh and get healthy again!

I'm a 37 year old momma to one 8 yr old boy; wife to a veterinarian.

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April .The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below...

Kel,

Thank you so much for the support that you gave me on my Sparkpage with my walking. However, all I can do is give God the Glory, as He enables me to walk, as I had to learn 3 different times since 07 Sep 12 to learn to walk again.

You will see when I finish my postings of the month, that I have days where God enables abundantly, moderately, and sometimes not at all. God blessed me with one month that I had over 1 million steps, and by His Grace, He will allow me to do that again!

Blessings!
