Last December i decided i wanted to have a child. After looking in the mirror and realizing I had a very hard time keeping up with my 4 year old as it was, I decided that it was time to make some changes in a big way before i brought another child into this world.
First I signed up for weight watchers, it worked great to get the first 20 pounds off, but then my weight loss slowed to a slow crawl. I then decided to try a carb conscious diet, so i looked into the American diabetic associations recommendations for non diabetics and weight loss. This of course worked but after about 3 weeks I found my self burnt out on the foods that were just so bland.
I decided to try spark people, and something well..sparked! I love being able to have the freedom to really chose what I eat and to see my progress each day in chart form and tables.
All together since December I have lost 40 pounds and I would really like to loose 20 more. I would love to make some friends on here so we can support each other. The online community is really the only thing I miss about weight watchers.
I am in the south east Michigan area and would be open to finding workout partners. I love hitting the pavement outdoors, doing yoga, water aerobics, and going to the gym, Although i enjoy working out I have to attribute most of my weight loss to eating right and really tracking everything I eat no matter which plan I have been on.
I look forward to reaching my goals and meeting a few friendly faces along the way!
