Congratulations on attaining your first goal already. I'm sure you'll meet your next one too, when the time comes.

I also started with SparkPeople for medical reasons...high cholesterol and glucose levels.
I gave myself twelve months to lose 30 pounds, a realistic goal for me. Due to the healthy recipes available here, I reached my goal early and am practicing maintenance until 2013. Then I'll set a new goal of 20 pounds in the next twelve months. No hurry, no stress...what happens, happens. By the way, blood test shows normal cholesterol and glucose levels now.
Good Luck trashing the oxygen machine!
Hi and welcome to the team!

"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

The past is our definition. We may strive, with good reason, to escape it, or to escape what is bad in it, but we will escape it only by adding something better.
My goodness - 4 responses in just about an hour! You really are a welcoming group. Thanks so much for the warm reception.
My husband was able to return his sleep apnea mask after some weight loss and an exercise program. It's likely you will, too. Often surprisingly little weight loss has considerable health benefits. Certainly it has helped each of us dramatically. God bless your journey!

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.

My name is Carol and I am glad to have found a team that fits my life. I am 66 and still working 40+ hours a week, so my time and energy are somewhat limited. I joined SparkPeople September 12 and have lost 7 pounds so far - unless that last pound is still hanging around to surprise my scale again. Individual pounds have been known to do that to me; they don't like being rejected. My total weight loss goal is 30 pounds. It doesn't sound like much but it is likely to take me a whole year to do it. My motivation is to be able to get rid of the oxygen machine I sleep with because of sleep apnea. My doctor assures me this will do the trick, at least for me. I'm looking forward to plodding along - and succeeding - with this team.
