Well they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I have a few words to say about these. Ugh, how did I get to this point? Well, that doesn't really matter, what matters is where I am going now.



My goal...I have finally decided to take action! I am not waiting until a Monday rolls around, I'm not going to wait until next month starts. I'm taking that first step today! Stay tuned for results as I will be updating this for some support as time goes on.

    I love your idea of having a white board to place your goal so you see it at all times. You should put your beginning pictures there as well. For what it's worth, it's been a year for me and I've lost 21# in a year. So, if I can do it, so can you. I still have a long way to go but I have made a safe improvement to what I came in to SP at.

  Good luck to you! We are all here going through the same thing. This is my third time on spark. 2 yrs ago when I stuck with it I lost nearly 30 pounds. When I fell off I put most of it back on. One step at a time will get you there!

    Congrats. I also started taking small steps today. Something as simple as walking for 30 mins. has me feeling like I'm on top of the world. Congratulations and keep it up.

    Keep that positive attitude and you will go far. Make the life style changes that you can live with and set small goals toward your ultimate goal.

  Good job! I am with you on your journey! I bought the book, "The Skinney Budget Diet, " by Linda Goff. I keep reading it daily. It keeps encouraging me to keep moving forward! She doesn't give us a diet, but just truth, about eating less calories, equals losing weight. This is my third time thru it. She was over 300, and lost over 150lbs.

I am taking a bit at a time. I started at 252, and have lost 19lbs. I have made my journey into small goals. Right now, I just want to get under 230!

Keep going! You're an encouragement to me! We can do it!

I need to figure out how to post pictures!

    Be sure to come on here often and look at the before-and-after photos of others who've lost weight. And know that you will be one of them.
