Getting on Track!

Hi, my name is Liz and I am excited to get back on track again with Sparkpeople. I was a Sparkie a few years ago and was pretty successful. I lost 50 pounds, but then fell off the wagon. I am now 48 years old and determined to lose weight and win back my health! I am the aunt to 26 nieces and nephews. My hubby and I have been married over 27 years.

Hi, my name is Liz and I am excited to get back on track again with Sparkpeople. I was a Sparkie a few years ago and was pretty successful. I lost 50 pounds, but then fell off the wagon. I am now 48 years old and determined to lose weight and win back my health! I am the aunt to 26 nieces and nephews. My hubby and I have been married over 27 years. We have suffered from infertility our whole marriage, and lost a precious little girl due to a failed adoption. (The state screwed up and had to return her to her mother that almost killed her.) We grieve everyday for her, and of course the weight came back on. In my spare time I love to scrapbook, hunt, cook and travel. I have spent the last 20 years volunteering for our community center, but have recently retired and have put myself 1st on the list for the first time in my life!

Hiliz , My name is Tameka. First I would like to Congratulate you on your upcoming addition to your family. Adoption is such a blessing and this child will be loved and have plenty of family around to show it ! Next I would like to welcome you to SP. This is a really great and helpful site. The encouragement and motivation you get from other members is so awesome. It's also motivating for me to browse through other members pages and see there progress because it's not some paid advertisement with paid actors saying "you can do it to". Most people are willing to give and recieve encouragement, motivation, and help in any way.

If you like be sure to join teams that interest you and join some of the challenges they have to offer. The challenges for me are really great because they help me to stay on track, friendly competition is a great Motivator.

Last but not least, Use the Nutrition Tracker to TRACK EVERYTHING YOU EAT. This was the most important first step for me. It's eye-opening to see how many calories you consume without knowing it, and it's easier to stay on track if you are constantly aware of how many calories you've eaten and how many you have left for the day.

Congratulations on making the first step towards a healthier lifestyle, it won't always be easy but the outcome is a longer healthier life that keeps us around to do the things we love with the people whom we love, which makes the effort worthwhile! Much Love and Success***Tameka***

Hi Redneckauntie! I am new to this website today too! I am a 49 year old, somewhat new grandma! I'm so excited, he is 3 1/2 months old and just precious! My best friend who is now 46 has adopted within the last year and a half! What a blessing. I get to babysit sometimes and that is when I really realize that I need to be in better shape! Keeping up with a toddler takes lots of energy. I'm looking forward to using the tracking, meal plans and support that this website offers. I wish you good luck in your quest to be more healthy! Also a timber carnival sounds like a lot of fun! I work for a home framer and we use lots of lumber! Moqqi
