To begin with...
Thursday, May 24, 2012
I signed up on SparkPeople in March... I wasn't very active until these last two weeks. I was very scared, and thought to myself, "I'm just not one of those people who can lose weight at all, so why even try." Which is a ridiculous statement, yet that is how I honestly felt about any kind of life change for the better.
Recently, after looking at some pictures from a shooting trip, I was stunned at how much weight I had gained!! How unhealthy I felt! And how depressed I was. Especially about not doing anything to change my health and just letting it get to such an unhealthy point.
But reading all these success stories, and motivational blogs, and seeing what a great community of people Spark has, I was overly inspired! Why couldn't I do this? I had no reason not to start! So here I am, beginning a new journey!
I have started tracking my food everyday, and started walking at least 3 to 4 times a week, and am in the process of quitting smoking. (which is one of thee hardest things I've ever had to do in my life....) I'm trying to start a little at a time, and after the first initial week or so, dive right in to a better style of living!
