I'm all about positive reinforcement. Believe in yourself and you can do anything. I know that it is a state of mind that brings success.

I started my new way of life June 1st, 2009. I did great for 3 months. Then school started, 3 kids in 3 different schools, working full time and I just quit. I gained everything back. Uhgggg! I did so well and then quit. I bet this is the same for many of you. Motivated, doing great and then something happens and we quit. It seems that once I quit I was simply not interested in getting back. It takes effort; a lot of effort and I felt the life draining from me. I have to be in the right frame of mind and I couldn't find my way back. Being healthy is a huge commitment! Guess what? I came back. Back to Sparkpeople because it keeps me accountable. It motivates me. I am changing my lifestyle and losing weight because I want to look and feel good. Did you notice the "I" in that statement? I want to do this for me! And, I am really tired of avoiding my reflection in the mirror. Who is that person? What happened to me?

So now I am learning to believe in myself, have faith that I can live the life I was meant to live. I know that I can! I am working toward my goal one day at a time. We can do this together. Join me.

Member Since: 6/2/2009

Fitness Minutes: 3,434

My Goals:
I want to embrace a new and healthy lifestyle. This includes making healthy food choices and incorporate exercise three times a week into my schedule (somehow).

My family will be coming along for the ride. A healthy lifestyle includes the whole family. They join me at the Y and this really helps me to stay on track. Exercise is good for everyone and they seem happy about going. Yippee!

My Program:
To become healthy I am choosing to eat 1100 to 1200 calories per day.

And, yes, exercise is part of the plan. I even joined the YMCA. Of course, now I have to get there. I will do this. I will!

Discovering the spark is awesome!

Personal Information:
I have a wonderful family that includes a very supportive husband, three boys and a girl (the Princess). Let's not forget our dog, a cat and 4 fish.

I am truly blessed.

Other Information:
I am a true Parrothead and love the water. And, I'm a 40 something. How did that happen?

Did I mention that I live in the Texas Hill Country? Actually, we call it God's Country.
