Liz has some great suggestions.

If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham

My instinct is tell that before you do anything else...take a moment to breathe.

I cant help but sense some tension and anxiety in post. Allow me to say this - it's ok. It's all okay.

You are doing wonderful, and the fact that you have specific activities and goals in mind means you are already on your way to success.

You already are a healthier person that you were 30 lbs ago. So relax into this new you, and enjoy the Zumba, and the healthy eating.

You have a great plan, have fun with it!

Hey all,

Just looking for support and advice.

When I first joined Sparkpeople 22 months ago, I was full force with my dedication to my lifestyle change. Then 2 major life changes happened, and I lost myself and my motivation.

I've remained active on the site, and have managed to keep off 30 of the 38 I had lost a year ago.

Now I need to get back. I ran my second half marathon back in October, and one of my original goals back in April of 2011 was to just run one. I know I can do this, but not a lot of support at home, so seeking it here.

My twins just turned 3 on Monday, and I need to remain strong and active and happy for them, and for me.

I'm starting a Zumba class this week, looking to get back into yoga, and am registering for a half in June. This combined with being back to tracking my food, and I'm hoping I'll find my SPARK again. I'm also planning on going back to the Spark stages diet, all the way back to stage 1.

Thanks for listening! Have a great day my friends!
