Cardiology scare, which turned out to be nothing. After all the testing, end result- Exercise more and lose weight. Since June, when I first went to see the Doctor, I am down 40 pounds. Many more to go, but was l lacking in motivation for a couple of weeks this month, so I have come back to the Spark community.




Stay focused and keep moving forward!

Seeing all that nature has to offer, but from a distance, and knowing that if I want a closer look I'm going to have to get into the kind of shape that will let me hike up mountains and through endless woods and across fast-moving rivers.

Deep down you know exactly what you’re capable of. There’s even moments where you get a glimpse of all the potential you have. You can get there. You must be willing to sacrifice the habits, the things, the situations that are standing in the way of your success. Never Stop!

I want to feel better, my health doesn't handle weight well. I'm not very obese but I feel the effects really bad just at 20 kg or so over my healthy weight.. There are obesity related illnesses in the family, my grandma died of a stroke and my mom gets blood clots very often so I'm worried.

It would also be great to be able to buy clothes from any store, I only buy very modest clothing so that makes it even more difficult when you only have a small choice to begin with, and you also need special sizes..

I want to feel strong and flexible too! I miss that. Longer walks, being able to move around easily.. Just living life.

My doc gave me an ultimatum.

I was sexually abused as a young child...a few times actually (now I am doing great)...so I'm sure I did the usual of making myself unappealing, as many survivors do...eating to fill that hole, eating to self-soothe, eating so nobody would look at me.

As I got older, though, it bothered me being called fat, being the tomboy and never being asked out. These days I relish in my single life because I choose it (I am a crazy cat lady, passionate about animal rights & protecting animals), but when I was younger, it caused me a lot of distress.

I had a really bad Mtn Dew addiction, became prediabetic, and the weight generally went up a few more lbs. every year. At 238 my doc said no more, I had to lose weight, especially with back & knee pain, a core that was basically nonexistent (on my way to getting more and more strength, thank god)....

And now my dad's health is failing a little more and more....and I am the only one who is willing to care for him. So it's all up to me...so I have a responsibility to care for him and can't if I can't move myself.

There are a lot of things that should have motivated - but did not. I was a single dad, so my kids. I have chronic health issues. Clothes were not fitting. I had to use the 'fat boy' seat on roller coasters... lots of stuff never motivated me.

What finally worked - I wanted to look better naked. Every night I would get out of the shower and avoid the mirror. I have heard this is not a good reason, but to me I think if it works... it is a good motivator! emoticon

1. My kids. I have a 9 year old and an 8 week old. I need to be healthy to take care of them. I need to be able to teach them a healthy lifestyle.
2. ME. I'm not healthy. Im overweight, I have asthma. Its just not a good combo. As I get older, the worse my health is getting.
