Brenda, Congratulations !! \¥¥//¥¥¡¡ Those are big decisions. Pretty life-changing. I've been thinking if I lost 30-35 lbs. I would definitely have more energy and what would I do with it? You get the bonus of having money in your pocket.
It's great you're doing this. You go girl. YGG

Hiya ARTISTLADY4 (Brenda) and welcome to the 50+ SparkTeam!
I am also shy - and decided that when I re-joined in 2012 September I was going to get out of SparkPeople what I put into it. And for me that meant coming out of my comfort zone participating in my SparkTeams and encouraging other people - even if it's simply welcoming them to the Team.
I am committed to my lifestyle change. I eat healthy, not diet. All nutrition in moderation, not deprivation. I work equally hard at syncing up my head and my body so I can become the healthiest I can be.
You can do it! And your SparkTeam mates will be here right alongside you.

"When you know the motivation behind your choices, you can make choices that support your authentic self — decisions that free you, rather than restrict you." - Danielle LaPorte

Welcome. Stopped smoking and maintaining is superb. Now to bite the bullet. Plan your WHOLE day and include something before your exercise calories for the evening munchies. I eat early breakfast. Midday main meal. Snack tea before I leave the office and have 2 pieces of hard candy when I get off the train. That sorts pout my sweet need.

Hi, I joined on Jan.18th but was shy to communicate. I need to lose 35-40 pounds and I quit smoking 2 weeks ago. I'm having trouble staying with the diet, get the munches after supper but doing a lot of exercise so have stayed at the same weight. Think I need to reach out and get committed here.
