After many,many countless attempts at weight loss, trying every single fad diet and magic diet pill and program, I realize that there is no "secret" or magic to it. It's all about a lifestyle change, finding what works for you & sticking with it.

I've been with Sparkpeople for a long time and had many ups and downs. About 9 years ago, I met goal and was able to maintain goal range for about 5 years or so. Slowly but surely, I backslid and the weight piled back on. I never left Sparkpeople, but life got in the way and I was not very active on here at all and quit tracking all together.I had 2 foot surgeries (one on each foot) this past summer- one in May & when that one healed enough - one in August, which also helped me to pack on some extra weight. I am now at my heaviest in nearly 10 years. I have about 25 pounds to lose, again.

I tried many times along the way to restart, but it never really lasted more than a few days or a week at a time. I always pout everything before me and my journey, figuring I'll get to it some day. That "someday" is TODAY.

Today is the day I recommit to taking my life, my health back. One day at a time, One pound at a time.

I am actually really excited about this new chapter in my life and I look forward to making more new friends along the way! We can & will do this! We are all in this together :)

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
