Losing for Weightloss and for Health

My kids are my main focus, it takes a lot to raise the three of them! Besides the kids, I love to read, garden, and listen to music. Had you asked me that a year or two ago, I wouldn't have known what I liked to do!

I've recently picked up guitar playing---long road ahead on that!

My Goals:
My main goal is to get some energy! The hypothyroid deal has really killed that for me! I would also like to get back to a healthier diet and exercise. I am focused on losing weight, but it's my plan that losing weight is just a side effect of the healthier choices I'm making.

My Program:
I'm starting out with still pretty much eating whatever is in the house. I don't follow a special diet, I am just working on trying to decide when and how I should eat so that I'm not clearing out the fridge and the cupboards every night! I am taking everything one day at a time, literally, until my meds are figured out and I find what's right for me.

Personal Information:
I live in north central ohio, in a smaller city. I grew up in a village, not even a stop light there! Feel free to send me a SparkMail if you'd like to get in touch!

emoticon Greetings and emoticon back!

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople again - you probably remember it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support- it's also lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together.

I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized here instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, but also to maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals including gaining weight or saving money - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place! You're off to a great start already, just by posting here and I think you'll be at your goal before you know it!
emoticon
Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I have - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

Please check out SparkTeams - you can choose them by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways. I'd like to invite you to join the Virtual Walk/Run/Cycle Thru the US @ exercise.lbl.gov SparkTeam - it's a really fun way to track your walking while you travel 'virtually' across America from Virginia to Oregon. Go to the SparkTeam page at www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i
ndividual.asp?gid=19805 for more information.

Some of the other teams that are good for beginners include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan - but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!
emoticon
If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site. It takes awhile to get the hang of the site but you can earn SparkPoints and Trophies while you explore and learn!

I wish you the best on your journey!!!
