I am currently doing two official SP challenges.
SP Official Stress Busting Challenge (in week TWO), and SP Official Better Sleep Challenge (in week TWO)

Here are the changes I have made so far:
1. Planning meals on weekly basis
2. Drinking 2.2 L of H2O per day
3. Keeping fruit in bowls throughout my house
4. Tracking my food calories
5. Working out every day
6. Eating 5 fruits or vegetables each day

I am working on new workouts and I have a 1200 calorie a day diet. TIME TO DO THIS!

I was also a member of sparkpeople in the past but I wasn't all that motivated. This time I want to make a change. This is not the first time I've had a large amount of weight to lose, the first time was after I had a kid and so I felt that was justified...and now, well it is what it is and here I go again. So, in the past what helped was joining a high intense aerobic dance group, it was so fun. I MUST have fun. But I hadn't changed my attitude and then I lost my mother so over the years I put all that weight back on, but this isn't who I am...so to get back to who I am I have done a lot of changing, emotional health was the focus for so long that my physical health suffered I'm ready to find a balance, changing to a more optimistic outlook was what helped emotionally so I MUST add it to my physical transformation and that is why I joined this group.

Sorry if I rambled. emoticon

PS. Thank God there is spell check, I love it!

I was a member of sparkpeople a couple times under different user names but since menopause, my thinking gets all screwed up and I let emotions get the best of me. So I end up dropping teams or leaving sparkpeople completely. But I'm back to stay this time, no matter what til I lose this weight.
******************UPDATED 10-27-2012********************
Ok, I had these big plans and guess I'm trying to do too much all at once. So here's an update on what I will be working towards now and hope with everything I have in me, I can stick with.
I went back to weighing and will weigh once a week instead of daily, starting tomorrow. After 30 years of weighing daily; going cold turkey just isn't going to work for me. So it'll be once a week for now.
I plan to do a modified low carb plan. That means I will basically be giving up 98% of the junk carbs but allowing the veggie and fruit carbs that most low carb plans frown on. For now I'm going to allow myself the 150 grams of carbs a day maximum but work to keep it lower.
In the past this would have me so frustrated I'd say to H*** with it and leave sparkpeople. That's not happening this time. I'm determined, come h*** or high water, I'm going to stick it out and do my best each day to eat in moderation of whatever I do eat and get in 30 minutes of some form of exercise and over time maybe add a little more. There will be days when I'm very active and then there will be days where I do good to get in the 30 minutes. It is what it is. All I can do is what I can each day.
I know this is a process but it looks like I could find something that would "click" for me and not be so friggin' hard.
But I'm not leaving and each day I'll do the very best I can.
