I have battled with my weight all my life. However, in recent years, I have become unrecognizable to myself. I am a mother, wife, sister & daughter - I want to be here 10 years from now! If I don't give this everything I have and change my lifestyle, I won't be. I don't want to be a supermodel in a size 1. I want to be comfortable in my own skin, healthy and HAPPY! I welcome new Spark friends from all walks of life... you can never have too much support!

The journey begins...

Fitness Minutes: 374

My Goals:
**To lose 10 pounds per month!**

* Drink 8 glasses water a day (getting much easier)

* Exercise at least 15 min a day (still rough for me to stay consistent)

* Portion control
(some days are better than others!)

* No mindless snacking
(I have substituted this with mindless water drinking, lol)

* No fast food. Taking time to prepare healthy meals
(I don't miss that greasy crap AT ALL, and my family sure appreciates the tasty, healthy meals I have been making!)

My Program:
My program is called:
There can be no turning back for me! If I fall off track, I will not spend the rest of the week beating myself up for it... I will resume my goals and hold my head high! After all, no one is perfect and guilt only makes me unhappy.

I don't track my workout minutes on here at this time. I did in the beginning, but for some strange reason, I found myself getting discouraged looking at all my hard work broken down into small minutes. So, for now, I am not tracking it. I'm sure I will start again eventually when I know I have made some significant progress and that little ticker won't make me feel so unproductive.
