"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be" -George Sheehan Gained over 100 pounds after becoming ill with a few different things at the same time, as well as my dad getting very sick. This stress caused me to stop exercising and overeat. I also suffer from hypoglycemia, which I've had for as long as I can remember. But when I gained this weight, it got worse, and I was totally overwhelmed and scared. I just ate and ate and quit moving. I want to get healthy so I can feel good again and be happy. I'm sick of living life like this. It's too short!

My Goals:
For 2011:

*Lose 90 pounds

*Then, lose 10 more to be back at my "normal" weight.

*Be proud of EVERY pound I lose.

My Program:
*Limiting my calories

*Not eating things I don't need (like the occasional piece of chocolate)

*Changing my mindset to think of food as a necessity and not a luxury, so I stop relating food to feeling good. Instead, to think of food just as something I need to survive, and eating just that much.

*Working out 6-7 days a week (5 cardio & 2 weights)

Personal Information:
Engaged and wanting to plan a wedding. I need this weight OFF!!

    Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

    1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

    2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

    The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
