Starting Over

I am the Business Office Manager/Personnel Administrator/Assistant to the Publisher of Columbia Greene Media Corporation. I'm married to a wonderful, supportive and loving man and have 2 grown sons who I am extremely proud of.

I have been a member of SparkPeople for quite a few years now but have been inactive for quite some time. I've put on alot of weight and got out of shape since I've been AWOL. Now it's time for me to start over. I'm ready to make the commitment to lose the weight and get back into shape. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and make some new ones.

So.......my goals are, to get healthy, lose weight and get back into great shape.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. Feel free to add me as a spark friend. With the support and motivation of friends, we can all meet and surpass any goals we set for ourselves!

Have a Sparkling Day!!!

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon back!!

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support. You're off to a great start already!

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there, including lots of us dealing with 'life issues.' You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways.

    Some of the teams I like and think you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan - but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals including gaining weight or saving money - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    Be sure to read and 'study' The Spark book because it outlines the overall program and is compatible with most types of eating plans. If you haven't already discovered the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check it out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I have - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
