Thanks to my family and friends who have watched me struggle with weight loss for many years. The weight has not held me back from my career or volunteering efforts, but my health has suffered. So many diets, so many short-lived successes and so many setbacks. I found Sparkpeople in February and have been counting calories and reading articles since then. I am having knee replacement surgery in a few weeks and am embarking on a new lifestyle. Today, this effort is not a diet, it is a lifestyle change. I have lost 20 pounds (a drop in the bucket) and am committed to becoming healthier. Exercise is terrifying. I hate it. It is painful and I don't look forward to it. I just read the article, "Put the 'I' Back in Your Vocabulary" and am taking responsibility for my choices. I can do this. I will learn to enjoy exercise as much as I enjoy a candy bar. Scary! I've started with"'Excercises to improve my posture" and "Learn to Love Morning Excercise". That's it for my introduction. Good health for us all, stay strong and stay commited.
