My earliest memory of saying I needed to lose weight and figuring out a diet plan was when I was 11. I'm 27 now and I'm still overweight. My reasons have changed over the years, from wanting boys to like me, to being able to fit into the jeans on sale, to trading clothes with my girlfriends, and so on. For the last couple years I have been trying to live my life to the fullest, and I developed this adventurous personality. I've always wanted to travel, but I am actually doing it now. My main reason for losing weight now is so that I can live out my dreams of seeing the world. I don't want to turn down amazing experiences because I'm not in shape enough to handle it. I don't want to be the girl wearing a t-shirt over her bathing suit at the beach. I don't want to slow people down while hiking up ancient ruins because I'm out of breath. I want to backpack across South America! I want to trek across Iceland. I want to sit on in the Devil's Pool at the top of Victoria Falls!
I am moving to Prague in 3 1/2 months. And in 7 months I am starting a backpacking excursion across Europe. I want to lose as much weight as I possibly can by then. I just need to stick to it and stop letting myself get too far off track if I cave in once.
I started a 30 Day juice fast on October 1.
On November 1st I am starting a 3-week diet plan made up by my old trainer.
This should all be a great jump-start to my weight loss goals!

    Hello, fellow Fresno Team Mate. I hope this post finds you in good health and spirits.

    Let me introduce myself. My name is Anna, I am so excited about being part of Spark and part of the Official Fresno Team, that I am reaching out to all the Spark Fresno Team Members in hopes that we can create a more productive and active team.

    The goal from the founder (Chris) of Spark was to help as many people as he could to reach their individual goals. We are so blessed to have this site to help us with our endeavors of reaching a "healthy lifestyle". So as part of my excitement and joy of having found Spark People, I am trying to get all our Fresno Team members involved in "healthy lifestyle" changes.

    We all need support and motivation. And this is a great place to get it from. But in order for each of us to benefit, we need to get involved. We will be blessed a thousand times over when becoming involved.

    The Team Leader, has put up a new thread "Meet & Greet Meeting" in the Official Fresno Team Forum, which is supposed to take place on Aug 22nd, 2008. Please stop by this thread and RSVP as soon as possible.

    Please come and be an active member in the Official Fresno Team. I would love to be able to share with you in endeavors to reach your goals!

    Thank you for taking the time to read this post. Hope to see you, first of all, in the threads and second of all @ the "meet & greet". If things go well in re-sparking our fellow Fresno Team Mates, I would like to start a "Challenge".
