So this is what it's all about?!

Thursday, May 16, 2013

This is my first time blogging! I thought I would give it a try after reading so many inspirational blogs and thought hey I can do this! So my name Jill and I have been struggling with my weight for about 13 years now. I have been on every diet/diet pill known to man it seems like. I have also been on Sparkpeople I believe since 2008! Yikes! I am just now taking full advantage of this website!
I restarted my journey about 6 weeks ago and I have lost 5 pounds!!!! WOOT WOOT!
I have also noticed that the headaches that I have been plagued with for probably 20 years have seemed to have disappeared! My 15 year old daughter is following in my footsteps (headache footsteps that is) I told her to start eating better and get out and work out and she wouldn't have so many! I think I might have her convinced but how do you convince a 15 year girl right?! lol I have also noticed such a big difference in my mood, as in I'm in a good mood most of the time now!
I do believe that this time around of my lifestyle change is different than any other time I have tried before! I have put 100% of myself into leading a healthy lifestyle and to make myself proud as well as my kids and husband!
I just finished my motivational poster (I will post pics soon) and let me tell you that has to be one of the best things I have ever done!!
I can't wait until I have lost the weight and I have a closet full of clothes that I have wanted to wear for sooooo long! But until then slow and steady is how I'm going about it this time and I am LOVING myself a little bit more everyday!
Good Luck to everyone that has read this and thank you! Keep Sparking!

    Sounds like you are on a great road! Good luck with your daughter. I know when I was her age, I really hated working out! Hopefully she does though bc its good to start the habit :) emoticon

    Even though you've been here awhile, welcome to active sparking! As you've already figured out, it's a great place and so helpful. I, like you, have been a member for a few years but only really started using it last summer and the results have been great. I feel so much better and have so much more confidence. Keep up your positive changes and you'll be in those clothes in no time!!!
