I'm Counting It All Joy: Defeating The Beast!

I'm a mother of two on a mission to gain a healthier lifestyle, in the mist of losing 100 pounds. I'm taking the beast by the throat and I'm not letting go until he summits to my way of living. I'm excited about meeting new people who knows where I am and where I headed. I'm here to encourage and to be encouraged as we count it all joy as we reach our goals together.

My Goals:
My number one goal to become more healthier. My next is to lose 100 pounds. My final goal is to help others to understand how important it is to make the right decision about our food choices early in life. It really is a life or death decision.

My Program:
Exercise: Is my number one thing on my list because it wasn't a part of my lifestyle. I workout on the treadmill 30 minutes a day Mon-Fri. I also do weights three days a week. I'm working on eating three meals a day. This is my downfall. I only eat once a day and it's making my progress really slow. Therefore I'm starting a 3 meal a day plan, fish or chicken, and plenty of vegetables.

Congrats on the weight loss. I saw your post on the Columbia group, and just wanted to let you know that I will provide as much support as you need. We have a similar goal of wanting to lose 100+ lbs., and it makes all the difference to have someone to lean on when your strength is gone. Today we're both celebrating weight loss! Have a good one!

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support- it's also lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together.

Sometimes the best way to start is to just pick a small goal such as drinking 8 glasses of water a day or eating 5 fruits and veggies - whatever you pick, I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized here instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, but also to maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals including gaining weight or saving money - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place! You're off to a great start already, just by posting here and I think you'll be at your goal before you know it!

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

Please check out SparkTeams - you can choose them by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways. I'd also like to invite you to join the Virtual Walk/Run/Cycle Thru the US @ exercise.lbl.gov SparkTeam - it's a really fun way to track your walking while you travel 'virtually' across America from Virginia to Oregon. Go to the SparkTeam page at www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i
ndividual.asp?gid=19805 for more information.

Some of the other teams that are good for beginners include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan - but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! 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!!

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. It takes awhile to get the hang of the site but you can earn SparkPoints and Trophies while you explore and learn!

I wish you the best on your journey!!!
