Hi My name is Abby,
I joined Sparkpeople about 4 years ago as a weight loss tool and have done Absolutely Nothing with it. Yesterday while going through my email, I decided to take a quick min and read whatever it was that caught my eye but instead saw a post titled 'Nothing Changes if Nothing Changes'. Wow, it was like one of those V-8 commercials, you know when someone gets smacked on the head, Smack!!
So now, I'm going to get serious about taking advantage of this wonderful site & all it offers & get down to a healthy weight. So I guess my introduction text is..."Hi, my name is Abby and I'm a work in progress".

Member Since: 10/17/2010

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My healthy weight goal is to lose 65lbs. I now have a healthy eating goal, which has begun with cutting out the candy. I have Ridiculous sugar cravings and food compulsions, which are at times exacerbated by night time meds. I'm gonna take baby steps on this journey so as not to feel overwhelmed. I no longer want to be a quitter of anything that will improve my quality of life.

My Program:
Because of my living situation & not typically the person who supplies the groceries, my plan is to make the healthiest food choices from what is made available to me & to do some sort of exercise as able, due to having Lupus I spend a large amount of time in bed. But am really going to encourage myself to exercise in some form or fashion as often as my body allows.

Personal Information:
I was born in Chicago & raised on the freeway, lol. For reasons mostly unknown to me, we moved around the country & we did it frequently. By the time I reached high school, I had gone to 15 different schools. I now live in a small town in Georgia, where I have been for the last 24 years.

Other Information:
Nobody can go back and make a new beginning,,but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

    First I want to apologize to everyone who took time to welcome me and encourage me, when I joined 4 years ago. I clearly wasn't serious about my weight loss goals back then or reaching out to fellow Lupies, and am sorry for wasting your time.
    Even though it's been 4 years, thank you for the welcomes & encouragement. I am excited about this journey to get healthy & to connect with people who understand what it is to need to lose weight & with fellow Lupies. emoticon
