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.

    Congrats! You look great! I read your DH page and had to look at yours. I wish my DH would get interested. He has gone up 4 sizes in jeans and complains continuosly and blames me for everything. He thinks he is doing it all in good fun but reality is I am tired of hearing about it! Thanks again. Kelley
