New Beginnings

Sunday, August 05, 2012

I just started with Spark yesterday. A very dear friend of mine referred me well over a month ago. I have been trying to loose weight and get healthy again and I felt as if I was struggling with it alone. I don't know why I remembered to visit Spark yesterday, but I am so glad that I did!! This is just the help and motivation that I needed. Okay, so I know that I sound like a infomercial, but I could not be more serious!! I am so excited about this journey I am about to embark on. I think the biggest thing that I am looking forward to is being able to stop taking some of the meds that I am on. My high blood pressure and cholesterol meds are making me crazy! Not only are they expensive, but they can do so much harm to you when taken long term. I am also looking forward to FEELING better. Feeling better as in more energy, sleeping has been a very long time coming. And, well obviously, I know that I will look just fabulous when I loose the 50 pounds, not that I don't now, just much more so. I am coming to a point in my life where soon I will have an empty nest and I want to be able to enjoy those years with my husband, healthy, happy and full of life.....not laid up on the couch because I do not have the energy to be the active and outgoing person I once was. Look out world, here I come!!!!

    Glad you are here...the best thing of all about this site is that it actually promotes going slow and steady. All the success stories I read here really do show that all those baby steps add up--and there's nothing daunting about a baby step.
You can do this!
