HI, thanks for checking out my page! This is my second attempt to use SparkPeople to aid in my weight loss. It has been about 2 years since I tried last, and sadly, in that time I have gained 14 more pounds. So now I'm going to try and get serious, I hope to make it work and stick this time. Although I do have a problem with will power, being consistent, and following through with my plans. I'm going to work on that this time around...
To lose 35 or so pounds, so that I will be happy with my body, and have a healthier lifestyle.
I am attempting a plan that I came up with on my own, not sure if there are weight loss plans like it out there.
10-150, an idea I thought would work for me, where I am able to eat 10 items throughout the day that are 150 calories. And as healthy as possible. I can group them for meals, or eat them individualy as snacks.
I am trying to avoid eating after 7:30pm, evening snacking is a major downfall for me. I will drink tea instead.
I need to exercise and will work on making it out for a walk or jog as many times a week as I can.
27 year old mother of 3, a step-daughter who is 8, a son who is 5, and a daughter who is 3. Married for 2 and a half years, but been with my husband for 6 years. I stay at home during the days and work as a server a few times a week in the evenings.
When I'm not at home with the kidlettes I can be found camping, snowmobiling, or just spending time with family and good friends.

Congratulations on your return to Spark. All you need to do is ask, and your Spark friends will answer your call and do their best to help.
I've taught Motivational classes for many years to many different companies and groups of employees.
In your introduction, you said, if I remembered correctly, that you were here to try again.
As a goal, to commit to just try, what you are unconsciously doing is giving yourself permission to fail - you don't want that.
Using a "Yoda-ism from "Star Wars", "Try? Try? There is only Do and Not do."
Make your goal specific and realistic. You didn't gain all of your excess weight in a day, a week, or even a year. Don't expect to lose it all in three months, six months or a year - if you do, you are setting yourself up for failure. You are also not letting your body heal.
Losing weight slowly can be a drag sometimes, but tell yourself that when you hit the "magic" weight, you will be strong, trim AND your skin will have stayed elastic and the chance of stretch marks is greatly reduced.
You CAN do it. You can do almost anything you put your mind to (OK, maybe not be the shooting guard for the Lakers, but...). Your mind is your greatest ally - and it Can be your greatest enemy.
I can't wait for the day I visit your Spark Page and see all of the "Woohoo's! and pictures of you dancing in the street, happy at reaching your goals!
