Hello! I've joined SparkPeople for mainly health reasons. I'm tired of feeling sick and tired! I hope to be inspired and be an inspiration to others. I love advice and helpful tips cuz lord knows I need them! I have lost weight so many times and so many ways but the only tried and true method for me and my insulin resistance has been the Lindora program.

What motivates me? I'm not sure anymore. It varies for me. I'm trying real hard for it NOT to be about "being skinny again". In the meantime I'm focusing on eating healthy to feel better. What I'm realizing is that sometimes there isn't any motivation...just choices to make.

My Goals:
First, I'd like to get my endocrine system in check. It's all out of whack from the foods I eat, not enough physical activity and genetics. Once I begin to eat healthier (very little processed foods) I'll be on my way to a healthier body. I think when I get to that point I'll no longer dread the coming of summer in Southern California!

My Program:
I've started back on the tried and true method for me...Lindora. It's a pretty balanced ketogenic weight loss program. I know what you're thinking; balanced ketogenic, that's an oxymoron. Well, it's not. Lindora's program has me eating grains, proteins, vegetables and fruits while maintaining a state of ketosis. It's a comprehensive program so it deals with the emotional/addiction attachments to food/eating as well. This helps a lot.

    Thanks for Spark friending me! I've friended you as well :)

    I read your Spark page - I 100% agree that it should be about health and emotional wellbeing - if you feel great, inside and out, chances are the weight loss will follow and it'll be an added bonus. My main goal is definitely being healthy! :)
