My first goal is to reach 160 pounds. This is essentially what I would look like at this weight.

Three c-sections and three kids later, and I'm still trying to get to a healthy weight. I need a support system, and I'm hoping to find one on Sparkpeople. I also still have no idea a meal plan to follow or an exercise program. Hopefully, I can figure it out.

*** I found out that a healthy weight for someone who is my height is 135-155. That is A LOT less than I weigh, so I really need to make weight loss a priority.

"You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave buttprints in the sands of time?" -- Bob Moawad. (Saw this on another
girl's page!)

A healthy body is a guest chamber for the soul: a sick body is a prison.

"Prepare your mind to receive the best that life has to offer."

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."

"Enjoy life. There's plenty of time to be dead."

"Every time you wake up and ask yourself, "What good things am I going to do today?", remember that when the sun goes down at sunset, it will take a part of your life with it."

"When one of your dreams come true, you begin to look at the others more carefully."

A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.

"Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times."

    Thanks for the support. It's helpful to hear from other people who are working hard but still struggling because it's a good foil to my husband who simply looks at a treadmill and loses weight. A support buddy would be great. Keep up the hard work. - Kim

    Welcome to Teachers with Attitude.
    I read your blog and left a note, then came here to see your page. It is possible to meet your goal !
    You mentioned an exercise program - I've lost a good deal of weight - mostly by walking - I began in the summer 10 - 15 minutes a day - now I walk 2 miles on the weekends - I prefer early morning. During the week I ride an exercise bike, I'm still making payments on for 20 - 35 minutes, depending upon what time I get my butt out of bed. I try to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily and keep within limits that spark people set. Spread out your eating too. As I have told my students (and principal as well) think of your body like a campfire. You have to keep putting fuel on the fire to keep it going, to much smothers it and too little lets it go out. Come visit, we'll support you.

    Welcome to the Teachers Learning to Lose team. You are going to find a ton of support and just plain good help on this team. I really believe that a big part of my weight loss has been as a result of the support and help I get from my Spark teams. Let me know if you need anything, again welcome!
