Cat, thank you for your post. I just joined yesterday. I am NOT a dieter and am inconsistent with exercise and eating habits. Your post is very encouraging and I think this site is just what I have been needing!

If the Lord takes you to it, He will take you through it!

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

Awesome!! I don't belong to a gym or fitness group either and since walking has been my preferred exercise it fit well with SP. I am excited that you have lost weight and I agree that it really does work! emoticon

After I hit my all-time high weight of 180, I decided to make another exercise & weight loss effort. I met one of my neighbors (82 years old) and asked if I could walk with her. Well, I couldn't keep up with her. I didn't make it out of sight of my house! Took me days to recover from that.

After my Dr told me I was pre-diabetic, etc. etc. I promised myself I would lose weight.

A lady in one of the Facebook groups I'm in mentioned SparkPeople, and I decided to check it out again.

I joined on Oct 1, 2012, and decided to JUST DO IT. After a few chiropractor visits and a couple weeks of Coach Nicole's seated exercise routines I started making progress. I never worked out to the point of pain. But I did the best I could do. I figured I owed that to myself.

I took advantage of SparkPeople's fitness and nutrition trackers, health & fitness articles, videos, message boards, motivational posts and blogs, etc. I stayed on the nutrition plan and within the calorie range that was given me to reach my goal.

It's been almost 2 months and I have already lost 15 pounds and a whole lot of inches. I feel better than I have in years. I am wearing clothes that I bought only to discover that I couldn't wear them, and they've been hanging in my closet for over 3 years. Well, until yesterday. Woohoo!!

I am not -- and never will be -- a fitness 'nut'. I don't have membership in a health club or any such thing. But I am here to say that the SparkPeople plan works. And I have no doubt that I will achieve my goals because I'm on the winning team!

Thank you SparkPeople!
