Hi, my name is Deb. And I am looking for my smile. I think sometimes we get so caught up with living we forget to enjoy each day. I do know I got so busy with the living, paying bills, and life in general, that I did not see that extra pounds creep in until it was apparent that someone had drastically shrunk all my cloths and I did not recognize that over age, over weight person in the mirror. HOW did that happen.

The good thing about it - is that Spark People works, and it is a program that helps you find that person that you may have misplaced on the way. I love the idea of setting goals that don't necessarily relate to weight loss. I am cutting back my couch potato status, Could it be when we say " OMG there is nothing to watch on TV" means that maybe we should not be watching so much??? Get up and move ! One of my goals is to choose my TV programs I watch, not to sit in front of the box for six hours simply channel changing. So I am choosing to limit my T.V. hours to no more than 2 a day. Whether, I read or go for a walk, or actually communicate with my husband... all good ideas. Also, good idea is to get more involved with community. When the children are gone, a lot of volunteer time and community time is as well.

I restarted with Spark People on Feb. 8th, 2018, at my all time high weight of 220. Today, stepped on the scale and have lost 19 lbs. My first goal was to lose 10% of my body weight(seemed more manageable) and I am 3 lbs away . My heart goal is still 71 lbs away. I want to do this by December 2018. That is 252 days from now, or 8.4 months or 36 weeks. That being said, it is so much more than weight loss, it is life style changes, healthy changes, that I am very excited about. I am reclaiming my life and my smile emoticon I want to be . And I am up for it. I can and I will - watch me!
