New Username!

Thursday, April 04, 2013

My wife and Dave inspired me to change my user name. I am no longer just starting this journey. While I am only into this about 3 months, I have lost 30 pounds and I am closing in on my goal weight. Once in the normal BMI range, I hope to maintain a healthy lifestyle in which I give up my over eating and include exercise in my daily routine for life. I know that it will be difficult and I know that I am still a beginner in the big picture view of my journey. In spite of this I want to begin to foster the idea of making these changes an important long term part of my new life style. I am excited about my progress and hope to complete the remaining mini goals in the next few weeks and then join others who are leaning to make this journey a permanent part of their life. My brother found a friend who has been doing this for over four years. I too will be looking for guidance from the folks who are doing this long term. Maybe in 2017 people will be reading my blogs and looking to me for inspiration for making a long term commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

    I changed my username just recently - in fact, I pretty much "killed off" my previous Spark persona - it was becoming too toxic and negative, so I thought that starting completely afresh would be for the best (I hated the name, anyhow - just a lame choice with no "personality" attached to it)......

Best wishes on your journey to better health!
