Welcome to the team, Amber!

It's amazing to see how much a person can change both physically and mentally just by developing healthy habits. :)

Hi everyone. Thanks for inviting me to the team. My name is Amber I live in Indianapolis. I'm a full-time graphic designer. I've been using Sparkpeople for a few years now to track my calories, but just now being active with the pages. Something I have learned during my journey is the more like minded people you surround yourself with the better chance you have of reaching your goals. I've always been active and involved in sports, which helped me maintain a healthy weight for most of my younger years. However, my habits as a young person didn't work as I got older. I gained weight, and I didn't understand why I couldn't lose any of it. I was depressed, disappointed in myself and in denial. Then thankfully, one day in September 2011 I decided I needed to make a lifestyle change. I swallowed my pride, took a deep breath and took the jump. I haven't looked back since. I've learned that being healthy isn't about feeling deprived. It's about making good choices and developing good habits that I can live with. I've lost 30 pounds and I continually make changes to improve my health. As my body shrinks my confidence, positivity and personality grows. I'm a different person than I was on that September day. Being proud of yourself is an amazing feeling that everyone deserves. I hope to see all of you experience it.

I'm here for a purpose...I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy. - Og Mandino
