Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

So, here goes folks! I'm excited to travel this journey and to see where it takes me. My sister and I will be working out with a personal trainer over the next 5 months to get in primo shape for her wedding in July. She and I will also be working on our diet and plan to go grocery shopping together once a week to pick up the ingredients for our meal plans and hanging out afterwords to prep everything for the week. Along with quitting smoking and getting in better shape, my goal is to lose 45 pounds and hers is to lose 25. It will be nice to have a partner in this and I'm sure we'll motivate each other along the way. Cheers to flat stomachs and lean legs! Now! Let's do this thing.

    Glad you are on this journey with someone else in person. Spark is great and has been a lifesaver for me but to have someone in person support and encourage you is an extra plus! You are blessed. Way to go on quitting smoking too. That in and of itself is a huge huge victory!

    Hi there, thanks for adding me as a spark friend, I greatly appreciate it :) I didn't expect my post on the introduction board to pay off so quickly!

I love your positivity and high energy approach to your weight loss, and it's super-fantastic to be able to do this with your sister and have her wedding be a slim down goal for both of you.

As my intro message states, I am here after a two year absence, finally ready to be accountable and do things differently. You are my first 'spark friend' as a result of these changes :)

Just wanted to say thanks for making my day by showing me that the old saying is true - when you put yourself out there, you will get a response in kind from someone who may be able to help/share with you, and whom you may be able to share with and/or help.

Hope you're having a fantastic day, and best of luck with your training session, enjoy yourself and celebrate your step to success :)
