Hi Sharai and welcom to the team! You are so right, just wanting to be thin doesn't seem to be the proper motivation for me, either. But when I decided that I wanted to be healthy, wanted to be able to hike and camp and kayak without feeling like I would die, or being 30 minutes behind everyone else, that got me started. Now, it's knowing that I can become the total package that I want to be - I am strong and smart, so I can figure out how to eat properly, exercise sensibly, and live a great life! The process is slow - I want to be the ideal me now! - but I am making porgress.
And that is where SP and this awesome team comes in - the encouragement and support I get here is unbelievable! Folks are so wise and so kind, that whatever the difficulty, I get the boost I need to keep on going.
So make your plan, start living your new life now, and join in on all the fun and good work here at Spark Oregon. We're so glad to have you with us!
NEF - No excuses, finish!
You are better than you think you are, and you can do more than you think you can.
