Time for a Change

In search of that thinner healthier person I know is inside me. She''s been trying to get out for years, but I''ve always put work, family, and friends first never myself. This time I''ve realized that if I don''t start putting myself first eventually I won''t be able to help the others in my life. So here I am...time for a change!

SparkPoints: 25,103

Fitness Minutes: 3,955

My Goals:
To be healthier and feel better about myself.

Short-term goals:
1. To drink 8 glasses of water a day. Update - I do this almost everyday, about 95% of the time.
2. To make fitness part of my regular routine. Update - I need to focus on this more over the winter months, once snow hit I've slacked. 2014 Update - I still struggle with getting fitness a priority. Despite the struggle I will keep trying!
3. To be more conscious of what I eat each day. Update - even when I've been offline for a while I still was very much aware of what and how much I was eating. I have the awareness now! 2014 Update - I'm very aware of what I eat and when I just need to do better planning with home cooked meals and less eating on the go.

Long-term goal:
To lose 100 pounds and be healthier and feel comfortable in my body. Update - I've was down 33 pounds by Sept-12 but I've gained a couple back over winter currently down 31 - getting back on track!

My Program:
I am working my program by drinking my water, tracking my nutrition, and tracking my fitness through Spark People. I rely on this program as it helps me feel more accountable for my successes and setbacks.


Personal Information:
My name is Sherri. I am 46 years old and married to a wonderful man who is much more active and healthier than I. I have two grown children and two grandbabies that are the spark in my life. I work full-time as a department manager in a very stressful business.

I've always had weight issues as far back as I can remember. I've tried many things over the years to lose weight and have had some success. But since I turned 40 my battle seems to have become much harder. I love keeping busy and doing things with my family, but have found something much harder to participate in with the extra weight.

I want to enjoy life and be happy in my body. This time it WILL work!

Other Information:
Live each day to the fullest, and take time to enjoy the simple things in life!

Thanks so much for the encouraging words on my blog - I guess I was just feeling sorry for myself. I really am a positive person and with the help of all my Spark Friends, I know that i can do this!
