Hello everyone! Ironically, following my daily habit of being a couch potato after I get home from work was how I learn about sparkpeople.com. I was watching a TV show were the website was mentioned as two ladies talked about how they have tried everything out there to lose weight and become healthy but nothing worked. As I continued to watch, I realized it sounded just so like me. So even before the TV show was over I got up, grabed my laptop, and inmediately checked it out. And here I am a week later... I've been sparked! For five years now I have struggled with weight issues like never before. I used to be a fairly healthy person until I gained a little over 50 lbs in six months or so. And like most people I got caught on the thought that what I gained in six months I could lose in one. That's how I found my-self spending tons of money on diet pills, weight loss programs, work out DVDs and when nothing seemed to work as fast as they advertised, I got frustrated and gave up. Yes, shame on me... I gave up. Then I spent more money buying new clothes as the ones I had didn't fit anymore. And the cycle repeated as I became more and more frustrated. Food became my only source of comfort just to feel guilty about all I ate few hours later not to mention my lack of physical activity. But after researching this website and seeing the many success stories I decided I wanted to be successful too. Not only successful on a weight loss journey but rather on a healthy lifestyle. Because most definitely that's what it is. It's a journey! It's a lifestyle! A journey... a lifestyle... that I'm willing to start on TODAY.
