I made it thanks to SparkPeople

I lost thirty pounds! I have never felt better. Thanks to everyone for their support and encouragement. Healthy eating and exercise are a way of life for me now. I'd be lying if I said it was easy; I was fighting over 20 years of bad habits. The best advice I can give is this: if you have an unhealthy meal, don't use it as an excuse to continue eating bad for the rest of the day. Pick yourself up and continue your journey with your head held high.

My Goals:
The biggest thing will be drinking more water and less soda and alcohol. After that, eating more fruits and veggies and less junk. Last but not least, I would like to do something physical EVERY DAY.

My Program:
The water has been a lot easier than I expected. I live in the desert, so nearly everyone has a water cooler. I take a regular 16.5 oz bottle of water and stick a rubber band around it every time I refill it. The goal is five a day [ten glasses!]

Stacey -- Good Morning and Greetings from central Indiana!!! Just stopping by for a short visit and to wish you a good day. One of my short term goals is to visit as many of the SparkPages of members of the different teams that I am on. I try to visit one page per team per day (and, yes, I'm keeping track of the pages I visit; 250+ pages & counting). You are my "Backpackers" visit for today.

Nice job on your SparkPage. I really like the SparkPages, and think setting one up is an important step; you have to think about what you want to present, and be willing to put it out there for the world to see/read. Now, we need some more pcitures.

CONGRATS on your weight loss!! Best of luck on the rest of your weight loss journey, and may God bless you. -- Greg

Hello. I was just browsing the site, and came across your page.
I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to our team. It is called "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".
It is a forum that my wife (Tickle*Me*Pink-aka Carol) formed. At first, it was for people with a disabitliy,but now it's expanded to everyone..disability or no disability. As a matter of fact, more then 1/2 of the group do not have a disability. Carol says "it's like a bunch of angels carrying all of us to our goals"

The link is located on my sparkpage, and the main discussion room is still named "disabiltiies group".
People post their successes in life,their obstacles, their personal stories, motivation to succeed, advice, different health obstacles, parents' topics, different age rooms, losing baby fat, books insight, crafts, literary, recipes, motivation..etc.etc..and there's even a thread for jokes(to name only a few).. There are many little challenges posted , to give us a little added "spark", too.. (maybe you can come up with a challenge too--all you need to do is to contact Tickle*Me*Pink through sparkmail or check out her sparkpage..)..if you don't feel up to a challenge for now, you will definately find comfort and encouragement in any of the rooms you browse in...

I was hoping that you will click the link, join the group, and come to post in the main room,("disabilities group forum") & maybe share some of your own successes,obstacles, goals, etc..for us to all get aquainted,better. As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.

We hope to welcome you! (my wish is that everyone here on sparkpeople has a place to meet..wether they attend to other groups, I feel it is important that there is a place like that..PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you..I know they'll be almost as delighted as we are to welcome you to the" place where people congregate"!! )
I hope you will click on my sparkpage, and add a comment if you need any questions answerred. (or you can sparkmail Carol or myself..we are more then willing to help)

Jack
p.s..I admit.. this invite is a bit long..you'll be surprised though..when you read my posts in the forum..they are short LOL well.. except for some of the jokes..which I am trying to shorten LOL (I just wanted to tell you as much as I could here, to make you comfortable and familiar and to feel welcomed)
