Raen Drops Weight and Gains Confidence

I'm 32 and ready to stop the merry-go-round of unsuccessful diets. I feel like I've been dieting for 15 years, and overall only gained (about 80 lbs!)

I've made a plan to go about this slow and steady, to stop fixating on a particular event (I'll look great before I'm 30, I'll look great at the wedding next summer, etc), and to focus on other improvements beyond just the scale (no more daily weighing!)

I am a high school math and science teacher, waiting for the elusive permanent contract. I live with my husband of 7 years, a cat and a bunny. I am a very organized person, a planner, and now all I need to do is follow through.

I am doing the 21 day fix, I am wondering how the program worked for you. Did you go for a second round? what were your ended results?
IM trying to get people involved on the sparkteam 21 day fix.
maybe you could pop in and let us know your opinion of the program.
hope all is going well for you and wish you the best on your journey

With Spark you will have a daily check in. You check in to yourself.
Then you find others to respond accordingly.
You go to the TEAMS and you can look at the Canadian teams to find geographically. You are a teacher try the teachers team and eventually you will find the number of people you will find. I am in Maine but I do have friends in Canada.
You can change how you put it -Looking for a CANADIAN to check-in buddy but once you reach out, there will be buddies a plenty.
Try the Canadian teams. Pat in Maine.

As I read your profile I felt like I was reading my own :) I've been on my own roller coaster since I was a kid and in 2011 (with SparkPeople's help) I had it under control... and then life happened...

I think the best part that helped me through was finding a close knit group of SparkFriends and together we motivated each other and kept each other on track!

Good luck on your journey!
