Hello. I am trying to lose a considerable amount of weight. It will be challenging but definitely worth the effort. It's also my hope that this weight loss and new eating habits will spark a lifestyle change.

I've started and stopped many times. This time I think will be different. Of course we've all heard - and probably said - that same line at some point in our lives about something. I think this time is different because of SparkPeople. This site gives you the tools - rewards, activities, nutrition/fitness tracking, online support and the list goes on and on - to make it happen. The more I use the site the more I find my new healthy lifestyle choices slipping into every practice...And you know what they say - if you do it for 21 days it becomes a habit.

A part of me would love to click my heels and have the weight melt away. But then I'd lose the lesson that can only be gained by going through the process. The journey will be many things - rewarding, joyous, happy and oftentimes disappointing - but most importantly it will be worth it. I already feel an upgrade in my confidence.

So, here's to starting a new life with healthy lifestyle choices. Come along with me for the journey - if you dare!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born April 2, you are perhaps the most original thinker born under your sign, but what you will learn with age and experience is that it takes more than creative thinking to get things done and to build a reputation and make a name for yourself. You must be willing to put your thoughts and dreams to the test, to pit them against the real world, and to engage with others who may or may not want the same things that you do. In other words, you must get your ideas out there into the world to do some good, or they will only serve to please you -- and only for so long.

    You can work well alone or with others, but you must always choose your teammates with great care. For you, interpersonal dynamics are the key, and if you can't get along with someone on a personal level, you're not likely to work well with him, either. Personality means a lot to you.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
