Okay, I admit it...I am a slow starter. I joined Sparkpeople in May 2009 but I did not start actively using the site until August 2011. What took so long that is a good question but it matters not as I am now actively seeking to make healthy lifestyle choices on my journey to loose 40 pounds by March 2012.
I am extremely thankful for the new Sparkfriends that I have made during the past month. Their encouragement, uplifting words and quotes, emails, comments and examples have helped me to make my first month following the Sparkpeople program a success. And, I have already lost 5 pounds.
It is time to find a happier me. It is time to make myself a priority. It is time to learn to eat healthy food, to find exercises I enjoy doing and to mark my successes based on my best effort not someone else's ideals. It is time to find me again...will the real me please step forward and commit to a healthy lifestyle that includes lots of laughter, love and fun? Today is the day to make a difference in my own life.
