I am 47years old and feel that my lack of physical activity in the recent years..ok so probably most of my life, is taking it's toll. In the past 3 years I have gained 35 lbs and want it gone! In that three years, I married, lost my baby sister to cancer and quit smoking (twice, but have quit for good now!). I have been diagnosised with fibromyalgia but am sure if I would get physical activity and lose some weight it would be very beneficial. Last week I decided to start HMR Healthy Solutions and even through 4 Christmas family functions I have stayed "in the box". I want to keep my motivation up and also increase my exercise. I find it harder to stick with since I am already having issues with so many pains and aches and need to get past those. but I don't want to use that has an excuse.

I am typically the type of person who wants to start something and begins but tends to lose motivation easily. I am hoping that Spark People will help to keep me motivated, have tips to stay on track and just be an all around great community. I would like to lose my weight and I am GOING to run the Susan G Komen 5k next fall in memory of my sister! That is my ultimate exercise goal!

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. But I think it's great you are going to run the 5K in her memory. That's great!! If you aren't a runner, I suggest you check out "Couch to 5K" -- great program. I used it when I started running several years ago. Best of luck!
