Hello. My name is Amanda. Welcome to my page! 2017 is here already and it's time to get on track and work on getting the extra lbs off! Thank you for all of the encouragement. It means so much! Don't be too shy to say hi or leave a comment! So far this year is off to a great start. My motivation for losing weight is to feel more confident, be able to move around better, and of course to prevent health problems, along with getting rid of the problems I already have. I have had high blood pressure for a while and it's time to get those number down. I have been really lucky with avoiding diabetes so far and would like to continue avoiding it. My challenges include Hypothyroidism and PCOS. It takes me a little longer to lose weight than most, which is frustrating at times, but I'll just keep working at it. Currently, my favorite healthy foods are blueberries and strawberries, chicken, and fresh salad with plenty of tomatoes. What I love about Spark is that it doesn't feel left ke a diet program at all. The food tracker is such a helpful tool. Definitely take advantage! I don't have a specific weight loss goal in mind. My goal is to live healthily and try my best. It will always be a work in progress, but I feel more determined than ever! I am glad other people are working on similar goals. The support here is amazing. There are great people here and I am happy to have crossed paths with them! :)
