For some of middle school and all of high school I've been overweight or just a couple pounds from it. I've never really been comfortable with myself. I can't remember a time I've been in the 130's. I've tried losing weight but have never made more progress than a couple of pounds. My highest point was 152 and all through my first semester of college I was 150. That's when I decided enough was enough. I'm tired of it and I need a lifestyle change. I rowed for all of high school but that didn't change my body much. I had a flatter stomach during the seasons but that's about it. I'm pretty good with my eating habits, it's just getting to exercise that's the problem but recently I have found more and more ways to be active and I'm having a good time doing it!

My Goals:

My Program:
Seeing a nutritionist once a month. The main goal is to get more protein in my diet and eat a huge breakfast to boost my metabolism throughout the day. Most of my program is mental as I struggle with BDD and have to learn to lose for the right reason, and also fight anxiety that comes along with exercising. If I can get past those barriers things will be much easier for me.

    emoticon It's Sunday morning and I am sitting here with a hot cup of tea trying to compose my thoughts/plans for the week. I really wanted to talk about never giving up, so I found this by Conrad Hilton:
    Achievement seems to be connected with action.
    Successful men and women keep moving.
    They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

    So if you have made a mistake this week, BIG DEAL. Pick yourself up and start again. I feel so lucky to be healthy and in control of myself right now.

    emoticon emoticon On another note, there were so many blogs this week from friends with chronically ill parents. I experienced that last year and know how hard it is to take care of them. You literally have no time for yourself and you tend to slip back into bad habits. If any of you have extra energy this week, please send it in your thoughts and prayers to those who need the strength and sleep to continue caring for their loved ones. God bless and have a wonderful week! emoticon

    emoticon It's bright Light Thursday! Time to let your light shine by listing all the good things you have done this week to improve your health.

    Don't list the bad things, no if I onlys....none of excuses....I know you can find a few things you did right. Here are some ideas...

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Now share those positive things with your friends through a blog or a post. It will motivate you more than any negative thoughts or guilt feelings you have.

    If you are still struggling, then set a goal or two today and DO IT! Post tomorrow how well you did. Don't wait until Monday to start again. Never go more than one day backwards. KEEP MOVING FORWARDS.

    Hello SPARK friend, It has been a trying week for many of you due to Mother Nature. Lack of emoticon and cold emoticon can cause depression and lack of motivation. emoticon

    Now it's Sunday, and time to emoticon . So embrace this day and make it the most wonderful and happy day of your life. Put aside all the problems (even if just for a hour or two) and enjoy who you are. emoticon

    You are a special an important part of this community. I am glad you are here. emoticon

    Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people's criticisms, carry out your plan.
