Shared Fitness Tracker
I'm originally from London England now living just outside Toronto Canada.
I have been on a long process for the last few years, I gained 100lbs because I wasn't happy. I have lost 50lbs but would like to lose another.
I can look back and know now that I wasn't happy, the stress of moving, losing all my friends and having no one for the longest time contributed to why I gained so much weight. On top of stress the lifestyles and food is very different. In Europe I did a lot more walking and food in Europe is not as processed here.
On top of the weight gain I have also developed an intolerance to certain foods. So I have quite a few good reasons to get my health back on track.
My first goal is to make it to under 200lbs.
Second goal is to reach 160lbs.
200 lbs - Pedicure
185 lbs - Haircut
170 lbs - Clothes shopping
160 lbs - Spa Day
Combination of monitoring what I eat and exercising.
I have a goal of 3 times a week strength and 3-5 times a week cardio. If I can do more great.
Portion control for food is a big one for me as that's been a downfall in the past.

I just wanted to say hi and tell you that even though I've been away from SP for the past several months (bogged down with work and stress) I am looking forward to ending the mighty-year-of-challenges that has plagued me this past year and start fresh soon... I may be still a bit scarce around here for the next little while but I did want to let you know that I've been thinking of you and hope you are doing well in life, in happiness, and in your journey.

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.
You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.
Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

Today is the unofficial "take happiness into your own hands" day. It's unofficial because I just made it up! (*grin*) But it seems like a great idea, right? Today, try not to be controlled by others... decide to be happy, decide to be great. Move forward as if all your dreams could come true today with no barriers standing in your way. Smile, laugh, and be amazing...
Because you ARE.
