getting started

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I started out wanted to lose weight to look better and to feel better about myself. Lately I have been realizing that I want to be healthier for my family and for myself and if that means that I lose weight along the way, well then that is just an added bonus. But my ultimate goal is to feel better about myself and to accept me for me! emoticon emoticon

    I will tell you, you've just accomplished the first HUGE milestone!!! It took me 3 years on sparkpeople to realize that weight gain was just the side effect of poor health decisions! I am so much happier with my body now that I understand that I am getting healthier and that the number on the scale doesn't matter anymore.

    Trust me, once you realize that losing the weight never was focus #1, everything will fall into place very quickly. There's got to be a great understanding between what you want and what your body actually needs... There's a great way to have balance in there. I'm glad you joined our wonderful family! Feel free to add all the friends I have on my page, they are all wonderful people in different stages and all have great tips and encouragement. I will be here to support you throughout your life changes, and thank you again for the great message!
