My name is Reba, I found out about Spark People from the Huffington success stories, I literally sat for hours reading (stuffing my face with popcorn)
and feeling both inspired and worried. Inspired, because I saw so many women just like me that made such a big change and the results was amazing... worried because here I am 295 lbs, can barely walk up a flight of stairs without gasping for air, stuffing my face with popcorn knowing that this will require a lifestyle change.
I said to myself if they can do it so can I, I signed up on Spark and joined my local gym with the intention of going in tomorrow... well, I am soooo SCARED and NERVOUS!!! I don't know where to begin. I am going for 5am and hoping to stay until 6am hopefully the gym will be empty that early...
But my mind is filled with the "what ifs"
What if I can't do 30 mins on the treadmill? what if the gym is filled with only SKINNY people?? What if this .. what if that...
And while Spark seems to generate great success and tools there is so much I am not sure where to begin, I know this for sure.. I refuse to remain at this weight, I am going to try my best, and I am looking forward to being healthy.
I have learnt that flossing is important, laughter is essential, perfection is impossible, change is constant.
