hate my reflection it is time for change.

Friday, March 30, 2012

I honestly would love to look the way i did in high school. I really can't believe i let myself go like this. I can't even stand the look of myself. I was never like that and I need to stop and change and be proud of who I am. This is a start of the better me.

    first you are way more than what you see in the mirror! Even if you change on the outside, i.e. lose weight, etc.., if you we do not change our thoughts we will still see the negative. Love yourself, forgive yourself and promise yourself you want to be better and make a commitment to YOU.
    The GOOD news is, the power to change that refelction lies in YOU!
    a plan, perseverance, and patience = progress!!!!
    it will NOT be easy- but it will be worth it!!!

    Welcome to Spark People!! I am so glad you are here!

    This is a great place to begin your weight loss journey. There are so many amazing resources to benefit from. From the fitness and nutrition trackers, to the teams and groups where you can get endless amounts of support, motivation, and advice to the articles which will make you fitness and health smart!

    My best advice for you since you are new would be to set a goal for each day. It really helps give you focus and a sense of accomplishment. Also, I have to say I never used to be much for exercising, but it really is key! Use both your nutrition tracker and fitness tracker properly and accurately and you are guaranteed results!!

    I started off slow. Best advice I can give you is to buy a decent pedometer. If you can reach 10,000 steps a day then you are considered to have a very active lifestyle. That is one big step towards a healthier you and it is an attainable fitness goal you can reach every day! From there walk on the treadmill or in your neighborhood. This is how I started off. Just walking. Slowly I began to go a bit faster then a bit faster. Before I knew it I was walking one minute jogging the next. This "break" between jogs soon became shorter and shorter the more often I trained. Now I am running 8 miles a day! Just take it slow. Baby steps. Focus on one goal at a time and before you know it you will be well on your way!!

    You sound the opposite the way I did in high school. I HATED the way I looked in high school. I weighed 275 pounds. I weighed 240 pounds when I started SparkPeople. I now weigh 207 pounds. I'm ready for a better me too. I hate looking at myself in mirrors.
