Here we go - AGAIN!

I'm back to Sparking taking it one day (one hour??) at a time. I have had great success in the past, so I know I can do it! The older I get, the more challenging it is to lose weight, but each new start can be the one that changes my life. So - here's to yet another first day of my weight loss journey!

My Goals:
I've been at this weight loss thing for long enough to know when you fall off the wagon (or fall under it and let it run over you for any length of time) the only way to get it back together is to start fresh! Here's to another first day of the rest of my life! :)

My Program:
Back taking it a day at a time. I really believe it is never too late to get it back together!

Personal Information:
I live in the extended DC Metro area in a growing community with my husband and two sons. I work full time an academic coach and tote my kids to the numerous activities they have going, so I stay very busy. However, I always make time for friends and am ready to make time for myself.





Other Information:
It is time to focus on me and get healthy.

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

Happy New Year and congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you! I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - 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!!

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

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.

emoticon

If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

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 do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
