It seems it has been years since I updated my account.....Actually it has been years. Many things have changed in my life, all for the better. We have moved from Iowa back to Missouri, and now to Tennessee to fulfil the next chapter in our lives. I have grown tremendously as a person, not in the weight since but in the since of maturity. I have finally decided that this journey is about me, how I feel, and what I want to make out of it. I have gained some of the previously lost weight back, however I am happy to say not all of it. In retrospect I can not hardly believe how my life has changed. The one thing that has always been on the list to make me a truly happy person is to be at a healthy weight. At this point it is time to make that happen. Through my journey of life I have been priveledged enough to come into presence and to get to know people that were very happy to show me the way to reach this life change and goal. Therefore I have the tools and I am going to use this sight to help hold me accountable. I have been given many opportunities in life and it is time that I put a plan into action to make me feel comfortable in my own skin. I dont want to be a supermodel, just healthy. NO MORE EXCUSES, I am going to do this. I am not out for a quick fix, I am going to do it the right way. For me the one thing I have to remember is that slow and steady wins the race, the longer it takes to come off the better chance you have of keeping it off. Time to get started.

Member Since: 5/17/2007

Fitness Minutes: 21,167

My Goals:
To weigh 130lbs.
To be in shape
To eat healthier
To lead a more active, healthy lifestyle.
Improve my self esteem.

My Program:
I would like to start:
Exercise daily with the time and intensity increasing weekly.
Eat more fruits and vegetables.
Be more active in everything I do.

Personal Information:
My name is Cheryl, my journey here at sparkpeople has been one that has taken quit some time and is still not over, but one that has been well worth it. At one time I had lost a little over 100lbs, I have since put part of it back on. At that time I was in the best shape of my life. My weight issues started as a child and have only gotten worse as life went on. My mission is to get back on track and loose those pounds that I have put back on as well as the other 40 to put me at my goal weight. It will take some time but I can do this, I have faith. I am trying to prepare myself for those times when the journey gets hard and the goal is not in focus. I know those things will happen so I am going to prepare myself now so the solution will be to get through that day and tomorrow will be better. My goals are attainable. I have to focus on myself and make me the person I want to be.

Other Information:
I enjoy doing anything with my family. I enjoy watching Law and Order, most anything on Court TV. We are very active in our church.

    Hi Cheryl, I'm so glad your family is settling in. I just got back from a summer at the cottage and I'm finding my exercise routine needs a little dedication. If you're interested in being an exercise buddy so we can support each other I'm just a Sparkmail away. Now I'm going to march myself upstairs and do a WATP.!
