2013: I have nothing to report. I didn't see any real change this year.
2012: I lost 5o pounds between January 9th and April 1st and maintained it until New Years!!

"I'm not here for a instant fix, or a quick one at that. I'm here for the long run. I hope to lose a pound a week, but I don't expect every week to be a loss. Even if the scale doesn't show a drop in numbers there will be tons of other wins along the way. I know that. I'm really ready to kick myself into shape. It's about time isn't it? I'm not a teenager anymore and it's only going to get harder as I age.

I don't ever dream of being skinny or even slender at all. I just want to be healthy. It's more important to me every day. I've been changing more things everyday in my pursuit of a well balanced lifestyle, and everyday it gets just that much easier. I still have days where I want to give up and sit back with a large greasy pizza and a movie, but those days usually end with a healthy dinner and a relaxing stretch.

I will never go back to my old lifestyle. I can't.

I want to have an active life, babies and stamina. I will have all of the above because I chose not to continue procrastinating. Procrastination is ruining my life. Was. Was ruining my life.

Not anymore."

    Hi Heather and welcome to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day (If you only drink one now, add to as you are able until you are drinking your 8 cups or more a day), watch your portion control (measure everything in the beginning...guaranteed it will get easier) and walk, dance or do any exercise you enjoy (start with 10 minutes a day or several times a day and add to it as you are able or have time). Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily (guaranteed to work if you use them consistently and honestly). Pick one thing to change...one thing at a time. Don't try to change to many things at once as that can be very overwhelming. Just try to take one step, one minute, one hour, one day, one week at a time. They honestly will all add up to the bigger numbers. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers and increasing your ability to enjoy life. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
    Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
    Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
    Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break...Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
    Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals!
    This is a great place to start. VIDEO: Intro to the Power of Your Start Page
    If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
    God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.

    Heather, YOU CAN DO IT!!! Take it from me, an ol' gal of 57. If I can do it, so can you. Visit my SparkPage and read my blogs. I love bike riding 12 months out of the year. People think I'm crazy biking during winter months in my home state of New York. But I tell them, if it's not raining or snowing, I'm riding! If you have found an activity you enjoy doing, stick with it. That's half the battle. You can expand with it and find your health improving every new day as a result.
    Happy trails!

    Just remember not to beat up on yourself. We are all human, but if you stay with the program and track faithfully and exercise, it works. So start out small and remember you didn't put the weight on over night and it isn't going to come off over night. Good luck.
