HI, I am 45, oops, 46 years old, a mother of two, a grandmother of one and I am struggling with my weight. I am too young to feel like I do
I want to lose 50 lbs, but am working on just getting out of the 190's by the end of March, that is a 3.5 lb goal
I am reducing portions, have started walking a mile trail at a nearby park with my grandbaby and have increased the amount of water I am drinking. I also try and do the Wii at least 3 times a week
I just turned 46 years old and have been struggling, obsessing over my weight for more than 9 years, ever since I gave up smoking. I have compulsinve behavior so I think I substituted food for cigarettes and this is a habit I cant seem to break. I want to though. My health seems to be deteriorating and I have a 5 month old grand daughter I realy want to be young for and enjoy.
I really need to stay motivated and have found in the past it is so much better and easier when you have people to encourage you, s send encouragement my way!.

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.¨¸♥¨`*,¸.*´¨`* .¸♥.*.*¨¸.´¸.*
