Before and after....
My weight loss model
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Well, here we go again. I had a great go on SparkPeople last year and reached my goal weight. And then life, and severe depression hit and I made excuses to drift away from my exercise routine and healthy eating habits. I have since regained all of the weight I lost the last time and it has taken me a long time to buck up and commit to getting back. I thought I could do it on my own, but the truth is, I need the structure, motivational tools and community provided by spark people.
I am reinvigorated to achieve my goals because in the last year, while I have struggled with life, I've also made some major changes towards who I want to be in the world. I have left my 80 hour a week job and am preparing to depart for the Peace Corps in April 2011 and I want to feel healthy and strong before I depart.
Thanks for reading and best of luck in reaching your goal!
