I began this weight loss journey just 12 weeks ago. My husband went shopping and said he was going to do a popular 3 day diet. I thought, what the heck, and I joined him. I starved myself for those 3 days and I lost weight, but it only got me wanting more. I searched online for weight loss resources and found SparkPeople. It was love at first sight. I found myself reading article after article to gain inspiration and knowledge. The food tracker and fitness tracker are some of the most use resources I have ever experienced! I use them diligently!

I may have begun this journey at my husband's prompting. Thanks to the Spark People I have become fully committed. I have joined a wonderful Spark Team, bought myself a new pair of workout shoes (a big deal on a missionary budget) and purchased a gym membership for myself and my husband.

After 3 months I have lost 46 pounds and gained a world of happiness. I am enjoying the weight loss journey with a supportive husband and some new wonderful friends that are halfway around the world. I have made a weight loss commitment to myself. I am no longer accepting that I will always be fat!

    Hello...Spark People has become my support groups for you see I am a recovering grease-holic. Yes, it is true if you can "fry it" I can "eat it".

    Moderation is a very important key to being successful in our journey. One day at a time....Look for small victories...Look for non-scale successes.

    Spark People research has found that people who get involved in social teams tend to be more successful in their efforts.

    I want to personally invite you to join the SparkPeople's Official Healthy Habits Challenge Team. There you will find others that will support you in your journey and you will be able to help others as well.

    On our team page BOBCATGIRL76 one of our team leaders has a great article to check out. Let me know what you think.

    We are here to help. YOU can DO this! Oh by the way...have you ever tried Fried cardboard, don't have much favor but a nice life today.
