"Be The Change You Want To See" Gandi

I discovered Sparkpeople in February, 2008. I think it is a great website with wonderful helps for people losing weight and developing healthy lifestyles. I was impressed with the creator's purpose for the website of giving back and helping others!

My goal is to lose 80 pounds and overcome emotional, binge type eating behaviors. I have developed these unhealthy behaviors over a lifetime but now its time to turn them around.

I discovered Sparkpeople in February, 2008. I think it is a great website with wonderful helps for people losing weight and developing healthy lifestyles. I was impressed with the creator's purpose for the website of giving back and helping others!

My goal is to lose 80 pounds and overcome emotional, binge type eating behaviors. I have developed these unhealthy behaviors over a lifetime but now its time to turn them around.

I'm excited to be on this journey with a group of like minded people; so thank you all for any encouragement and help you can give me a long the way! And hopefully I will be able to encourage you as well! I very excited today because I just earned an trophy. It is 6/17/10....I want to see how quickly I can earn the next trophy. It will take around 2500 points. So that will take some time and growth (hopefully)....and most definitely some weight loss. After being here for 2 years, I'm finally getting involved and eating more wisely. Learning to practice restraint and less late night eating and binging. So I'm feeling very positive about my life.

Yesterday for awhile I was really not happy with myself feeling as if I can't or don't ever achieve any goals Then I was reminded that is not true....I CAN! So my attitude changed to one of strength instead of defeat. Then today I learned I need to set some specific, measurable goals! And I see that I'm writing a blog instead of an introduction text. So I will start that now, a blog.

"I can do all things through Christ who strenthens me." Phil. 4:13
"Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world."
Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might!
Faith without works is dead...

Let's encourage one another; together we can achieve our goals!

Hi Joy! I saw your post on the 100 day challenge at Dandy Lions and just had to stop by and say "Hello!" I was thinking of you the other day. My life is still having it's ups and downs, but at least now I'm back on SparkTrack! I've been back focusing on the journey for almost a month and I am happy with the results so far. I was so happy to see your post and your ticker showing your hard work is paying off!
