I know the struggle. It has taken me 45 years to understand, that I am my worst enemy and that exercise must be a part of my life, if I want to lose weight.

Kamee08 you are on the right track!

Hello ladies,

I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. My weight is like a roller coaster. I have my highs my lows and everything else in between. I never really sat down to analyze the situation I just thought I have bad eating habits. The surprising thing is when I was 135 pounds I still thought I was over weight. Now at 181 I'm thinking (hello, what was wrong with you).So now I'm taking my life back!! I am going to make better eating choices and I'm going to exercise and be healthy.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deppest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure...We are all meant to shine as childen do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us...And when you let your light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others--Marianne Williamson

Hello everyone. I am Rasha-- 31-year-old mother (of two) and wife in Houston, TX. I need to shed many, many pounds, but I've set my goal at 55 lbs for the time being. This will just be a one-day-at-a-time journey. Since joining Spark in late March, I have gone to the gym 4x per week, maintained pretty good eating, and remain motivated! This is probably the best community site I've ever been on! I love it. BTW, the pictures of Janet really caught me!

Hello everyone! I love challenges because the keep me motivated. I am committed to changing myself and have even scheduled time for exercise in my planner. That makes me accountable and I can no longer use the excuse, "I don't have time". Looking forward to ALL of our successes!!!!

Hello Team,

Just wanted to say hello and let's stay motivated. I joined SP two weeks ago and I haven't lost a ponud. I followed all the rules. I workout 5 times a week and I've been eating better. A couple of my SP friends has been very encouraging. I've learned that I'm probably building muscle mass. I'm trying not to return to my old habits because I know with God's will the weight must come off.

Hi Ladies,

I am looking to drop 60 pounds, I have gained my weight from a hip injury which I have been cured of and I am ready to get this weight off. I have set myself up with a calorie budget of 1580 and a fat budget of 44 per day. so far I have lost 4 pounds in one week. I am looking for support and things to hold me accountable or I will get bored and quit like I always do. I need help sticking to it. Thanks ladies.

The picture says it all...Janet has always motivated me because she shows how "human" she is...she's just like us and I love her for that...I've been battling my weight for some time now and feel now is the time to take "control"...if you all need anything to keep you moving, by her latest cd "discipline" it is the best and will leave you in a sweat! Anyway, my prayers are with you all and I hope we can acheive our weight goals together!

Understand there are no shortcuts. You can NOT take the elevator to sucess, you have to take the stairs - and these stairs are steep with no rails to hold on to.

Sucess is not coming your way, you have to go get it !!!

Hi, I'm new to this group. I wanted to find a group that I could relate to and I think I've found it. Well in November 2007 I started out at 203 and I weighed in today at 184. I am 5'6 and still have more to lose but I can no longer afford the clinic I started out with, so if anyone has any affordable tips, please share :)
