Patti Stone - My beginning for a healthier lifestyle!

When I was in my early 20's I had some periods where I was overweight. However, I started walking and lost all the weight and then had my two children without gaining alot of weight. However, about 3 years ago went into menopause and have packed on about 15 pounds and I feel so out of shape! I do find myself snacking while watching TV.

However, about 3 years ago went into menopause and have packed on about 15 pounds and I feel so out of shape! I do find myself snacking while watching TV. I know I need to change my lifestyle and start eating more fruits and vegetables and start up my walking program again....well I started 3 days ago!! So for the past 3 days I have walked for an hour. I am going to try to keep this up. My goal is to lose some of my flab, tone up, and get back down to 112 pounds...hopefully by my goal date of 2/1/2012!! Wish me luck :-)

Hi Ms. Patti and welcome to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day (If you only drink one now, add to as you are able until you are drinking your 8 cups or more a day), watch your portion control (measure everything in the beginning... guaranteed it will get easier) and walk (start with 10 minutes a day or 10 minutes several times a day and add to it as you are able or have time). Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily (guaranteed to work if you use them honestly). Pick one thing to change...one thing at a time. Do it for at least two or three weeks before making other changes. For example, eat no junk food at bedtime...then eat no junk food between lunch and dinner, etc. Don't try to change to many things at once as that can be very overwhelming. Just try to take one step, one minute, one hour, one day, one week at a time. They honestly will all add up to the bigger numbers. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers and increasing you ability to enjoy life. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break...Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals! CONGRATULATIONS on your husband joining your healthy journey with you!!!
If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
Hugs,
Helen
