12/30/12 Starting over! Not the words I ever wanted to say when I joined SparkPeople on 7/26/11. I had started out full steam ahead, losing 20 pounds, hitting the gym regularly and on my way to the new me. But, on Super Bowl Sunday that all changed! I was driving my family to our friends house for a super bowl party when a teenager over corrected her car and hit us head on. Praise God me and my family were not injured as bad as we could have been. We've been told we were lucky to walk out...I like the word blessed much better! God was definitely in control! My daughter and I are still going through therapy but the dr has released us to start up the gym regiment once again. I ask for prayers as we begin a new year, a new chapter and a new beginning to a healthy lifestyle change!

7/26/11 I'm a 45 year old wife and mother of one. I work full time in a sometimes stressful project manager's job. I have yo-yo dieted all my life and realize I NEED TO TAKE CONTROL. I've had enough of the diet games, it's time to make the lifestyle change. My friend told me about the SP website and I logged on 7/26/11. I have lost 8.5 lbs (with a slight .8 weight gain while on a beach vacation the week after I signed in). It felt great to come back, lose the .8 plus another 3.5 and get back on track! Anyone out there that ever has encouraging words for someone that is trying to lose over 50 lbs., feel free to send me those words to keep me on track :)

My Goals:
My goals are to take 10 lbs. off at a time. When I look at the overall figure of losing 70 lbs., it's discouraging so I want to take one step at a time. I also will have a class reunion coming up in 2014. I was always overweight and would love to look fabulous!!

My Program:
I have started tracking my foods and exercise on the SP app on my smartphone. I love it! It's amazing how much "bad" can cross your lips when you're not counting!!
