I can't believe I'm doing this!

Need to and want to lose some weight. My support system at home is practically non existant and am reaching out to others for help.

Fitness Minutes: 296

My Goals:
My goal is just to live a healthier lifestyle. Be more active and be more involved with other people instead of being a loner.

My Program:
I try to eat more vegetables and fruit. I cut down on fatty foods. I'd like to cut down on portion size but find it difficult to do.

Personal Information:
I live in Ontario, California. I am originally from Belgium but have been living in the US more than 40 years.

Other Information:
I love to read. Mostly mysteries. My favorite quote, that I repeat several times a day is: "I am the product of the choices I make."
I would like to find someone to go hicking with. Start out slow. I went to Scotland 2 years ago and to the Pyrenees this past summer and did some hiking there. I love being outdoors but have no one to share this with.

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! emoticon emoticon ¸.•´ (¸.•´ ♥¸.•´¸¸.• (¸.•´ (¸.•*¨ (¸.¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. You are- WONDERFUL-cuz you’re you!!!
