My name is Michelle. I have been overweight since I was a teenager. At the age of 42, I am now at my heaviest weight ever. I need to lose 90+ pounds.

I commit to the Winter -1 5% Challenge to lose 10.5 pounds. I commit to exercising at least 10 minutes of cardio exercise daily and 25-30 minutes of strength training exercise 6 days a week. I will follow my own diet making HEALTHY changes/choices with SparkPeople's help and guidance. I plan on making an eating and exercise plan I can incorporate into a healthy lifestyle. I will huddle and post on my team daily.

    Hi, Welcome to SP! You've made a wonderful decision to take care of YOU, and this is a great place to help you reach your goals!

    Try setting small goals, taking baby steps, and any small changes will lead to big successes down the road!! I've lost 70 pounds so far, still have a lot more to follow, but SP has given me hope that I will one day reach my goal weight! It's the first thing I've ever stuck with and enjoyed!

    Be sure to use the trackers and stay connected-the support here can't be beat!!
