Welcome Crystal to the team. Losing weight is a process for me. It is all about changing old habits and replacing them with new healthier habits. I have changed many of the bad choices in food and have found I still have to eat more than I thought. I have never gone hungry, I exercise regularly. I have been on my own program, using the tools of SparkPeople, for a year now and have lost 65 lbs. This is the longest I have ever stayed on a diet and fitness program. Thanks to Spark I have a great foundation to build a healthier life for myself. If I can do this in my senior years, I know you can do it. Consistency is the key My consistency is logging in all my food and fitness. If I stray from logging either I see the weight start stalling or start to inch up. Logging keeps me accountable and I think it is something I will do the rest of my life. Good luck to you in your program.

Hello my name is Crystal. I have been overweight since my tween years, I am tired, tired of being tired, overweight, stressed and not having any energy. My goal is to get healthy, to me this means eating healthier, losing weight and starting to get some exercise. The thought of dieting has always been followed by the thought it is impossible so why try. I read about Sparkpeople and signed up as my first foray into any sort of program or group, all I can say is wow sparkpeople is awesome! I know this will be a long road, and I know it won't be easy but it is a journey I will complete and I am so glad to have found this place. My final thought "The word impossible contains the word possible" (thank you Mr. Spock). Crystal
