Fitness Minutes: 468

My Goals:
My goal, overall, is to gain more control over my life. I want to be healthy and happy! In order to achieve that I want to lose forty-three pounds and arrive at a healthy weight.

Other than that, my goals also include surviving my freshman year of college (yikes!), and eventually becoming a special education teacher.

My Program:
I am tracking my calories, and trying to exercise (hit the gym or go to a spinning class on campus) 2-3 times a week. I also want to become very involved in the SparkPeople community so I can keep motivated!

Hi Laura! Welcome to SparkPeople!
- I haven't been a memeber that long, but this site is pretty easy to use. I think of it as a facebook community for individuals focused on their health.
-There are so many people on her that are very encouraging & motivating. It's nice to know no one is alone when it comes to losing weight & being healthy.
- I hope you're having a great day!

Found this poem while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Anything is Possible
By Unknown

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily...
but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
HAVE FUN.
DIG DEEP.
STRETCH.
DREAM BIG.

Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

PERSIST.
Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

TRUST.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
