***** I've just decided to lose 10% of my weight at a time! ***
Reinventing myself requires a fresh perspective, the ability to overcome obstacles and dogged determination.
I am building up all of these things in myself.
I am dedicating myself to being the healthy, vibrant, caring, compassionate, amazing woman that I am and that I was meant to be.
I am exactly the person I choose to be.
Changing myself is absolutely up to me.
NO matter what curveballs life throws at me, I am worth every single effort to take care of myself. I am a keeper.
SPARKPEOPLE is a gift I give myself! The energy and inspiration abounds and overflows!
I AM D-O-N-E being the fat girl! I am done seeing myself this way also! WOO HOO!
UPDATE: Sept 2012
After a short lived detour working with an online coach who was so not my style, I am giving Sparkcoach a whirl. I'm checking out the 2 week trial. We'll see what happens from there. :)
I am working with two coaches/personal trainers who are helping me to transform my life. I am learning to ask for and receive help. My life is changing, and I am the one making the changes!
To remember I am a great person.
To believe in myself.
To not panic when I sit in a chair, worrying that it is not going to hold me.
To stop holding myself back from social situations.
To wear a dress (and feel comfortable in it)
GET DOWN TO A SIZE I am happy to wear
BE CONFIDENT 100% of the time --- NOT JUST PERIODICALLY...
To be agile and limber
To FEEL GOOD!
To look hot. :)
Low sodium, low potassium intake.
Drink lots of water.
Learning to treat my whole self as sacred.
The serenity prayer

Finally it's Summer! We've all been waiting for it. Some fun in the Sun....but, what are we to do if the cold is still hanging around?
It doesn't mean that we should jump off the wagon, stop exercising and start eating whatever we want. A healthy, calorie-moderated diet and regular physical activity are essential for physical and mental health. We can still practice self-acceptance while continuing to work toward our goals.
We can exercise in the house, use Spark People's exercise video's, dance our way to fitness and so much more. Just don't give up and let the blues slide in and up set your balance.
I have faith in you. Let's get creative!

Did you know working out comes in many forms, and not all of them will leave you breathless and drenched in sweat? â€śExercise doesnâ€™t have to be spending an hour at the gym. Just get moving,â€ť even if it's just for 10 minutes a day. â€śTake a dance class, go for a hike, walk the dog, or vacuum your house. It all counts!â€ť So, yes, those late-night solo dance parties where you pretend youâ€™re BeyoncĂ© or Rita Hayworth are well worth it. Just get your body moving. Before you know it, you will have started a work out routine!
