SparkPoints: 428

Fitness Minutes: 45

My Goals:
- Lose 50 pounds to get to my goal weight of 135
- Increase fitness to help with joint/back pain and sleeping problems

My Program:
- 28-day Bootcamp from February 12-March 10
- 5+ servings/day of fruits and veggies
- 0-2 servings/day of sweets and fats
- 11+ cups/day of water

Personal Information:
After a major trauma in my life 18 months ago, I completely lost my love for healthy food and an active lifestyle. I have gained 50 pounds, which has exacerbated joint/back pain, stomach problems, depression and anxiety.

I joined Spark People in November 2011, my first major step to taking back control of my health. This blog is the next step in my journey, where I expect to chronicle many changes, failures and victories. I hope that my general momentum will be forward!

Other Information:
There are far better things ahead than anything we left behind.

emoticon In case you are wondering…shortly after the beginning of 2012 I made a commitment to myself to check in on Spark Friends at least once a week…it may be a goodie, or a comment on your page, blog, or feed. I try to make it more than just liking a comment. While any reciprocation of support is greatly appreciated please do not feel pressure. I just decided that it is the quality of the friendships in my life not the quantity that makes me so blessed. emoticon
emoticon If you are on a team or teams with me and I spot in a huddle that you are needing support or there is a message to visit your page I am trying to be there. If you ever need extra support please feel free to give me a personal shout out. emoticon
emoticon This being said, I have decided that the week after Easter I will be releasing friends who are no longer active on SP, I am setting the arbitrary level at 90 days inactivity. If you return to SP after that time I would love for you to add me back. It is not a decision to reject people it is a time management decision. emoticon
emoticon I am finding that Spark People is bringing out the encourager and the pray-er in me, and as a result I am much more encouraged. Hope you have a blessed week and that you are still making a difference in your journey. LYMI emoticon
