O M G it has been THREE YEARS since I have been on here. So much has happened and unfortunately I have let my fitness routine fall by the wayside and with some very recent weight gain. I need to get active. Biggest change is I moved to a sedentary job environment and combining that with increasing skipped workouts has gotten the results you would expect.

Well my journey brings me here and I am encouraged by my past successes and all the success I witness from spark members. I am taking baby steps and with your support and God’s help will be back on track.

Watching the Olympic Atheletes really makes me feel LAZY!

Greetings from Florida!!!!

Member Since: 9/1/2006

Fitness Minutes: 4,354

My Goals:
To reach and maintain my goal weight for life.

My Program:
I am not saying this is ideal but this is what I am doing now. It is an improvement from where I started.

Monitoring my calories and eating more nutritious foods, walking, stretching and some light strength training.

After a couple weeks I am going to follow a more structured program.

Monitor calories.

Personal Information:
My weight climbed AGAIN after abandoning spark and letting life get in the way again. I truly need to make a lifestyle change that is PERMANENT.

I am back again and plan to tackle this once and for all. I was happy with myt weight 3 years ago and know I can achieve that or even better.

Given my current age I can't afford to keep yo-yo'ing up and down the scale and truly need to solve what is keeping me from maintaining a healthy weight.

Other Information:
Glad to be back. Let's motivate each other to our goals and have some fun along the way.

    Thanks for the welcome to the Florida Team! I look forward to looking good in a bathing suit. I am currently 1/4 of the way to my goal weight.

    Reading a motivational page is part of a challenge on the W8Watchers At Home team and yours was suggested for today.
    You have done great--I'm also in FL (on the coast) and it is much easier to enjoy our outdoor, always in a bathing suit, lifestyle when you are feeling good about how you look.
    Thanks for sharing your story.
    Good Luck on your continued journey to weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.
