I have learned that in order to change yourself you have to be ready. You can't join a fantastic website like SparkPople and expect it to magically motivate you. You have to have the motivation to make the changes, or it just won't work.

I joined this site over a year ago, but I wasn't really ready to make changes when I did...........and then my weight escalated. One day I stepped on the scale and reality sunk in when the scale read 283 lbs. I could imagine the scale saying "move it tubby....you're stressing me out."

One of my best friends had asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding and I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to lose 20 lbs. With help from my supervisor at work I started a walking program and she suggested some ways that I could eat better. So, I started working at it. I am pleased to say that by the time the wedding came around I had lost almost 30 lbs.

Unfortunately the Holiday's got the better of me and I gained 5 of those lbs. back, but it's a new year and I am ready to go. I am armed with books like "The Spark" and "Skinny Bitch" and I am determined to meet my weight loss goals.

    How do you like the Spark Book and Skinny Bitch. I have heard both are good reads and I was thinking about picking them up myself. I am proud of you losing the weight you have!
