I stumbled across SparkPeople by accident back in May of 2007 and I do believe it is one of the BEST things that has ever happened to me! I know this journey IS different for EACH person, but I started with drinking my 8 glasses of water a day and logging my food. Let me just say that logging my food was a HUGE eye opener... DANGER! DANGER! From there I moved on to exercise which for me consisted of walking, walking and yes, more WALKING. I am starting to seriously branch out in how I exercise... Kickboxing, Zumba, Spin and even Bootcamp!

THANK YOU SPARKPEOPLE FOR HELPING ME CHANGE MY LIFE!

I can see my toes without moving my belly out of the way or bending over.

I can touch my toes.

I can reach the center of my back with my hands.

I can put my leg up on my knee to tie my shoes without pulling my foot up with my hands.

I can walk to the end of my driveway and back without feeling short of breath.

I can walk around the block (1.5 miles) without feeling like I might die.

I can alternate walking and jogging on my morning walks.

I can comfortably wear a pair of size 14 jeans. (I was in an 18, pushing a 20 when I joined.)

I can wear size large shirts.

I no longer fit into clothes at Lane Bryant... They are TOO big!

I can breathe easier.

I am OFF of all high blood pressure medications.

I not only sleep better, but fall asleep easier.

I can hike and I do it often.

I have joined a gym and use it.

I have participated in a boot camp fitness club.

I have walked a 5k, a 10k, a 15k, a half marathon and a marathon.

I have jogged a 5k.

I have done a stair climb.

I have walked 60 miles in three days to fight breast cancer.

I know I could go on and on, but I won''t...
