I WANT TO BE A BIG LOSER!!!

Hello....
My name is Yesenia. I joined SP on 1/6/2008 after hearing about it through a cable special on Fad Diets. To make a long story short. I was not an obese child nor teenager. I gain weight after having children, not surely why, stress, life, depression....... Whatever the reason that got me here, it is now time to do something about it. That is why I am here at Spark People.

UPDATE!! It is now August 30, 2011 and I have actually gain back whatever I lost and than some. 2011 has been a hectic year in my life. Last year I found out I had a thyroid problem (discouraging), I have been on meds for about 10 months and feel it is done nothing. I lost both my mother and grandmother this year. Life simply has been an emotional roller coaster this year. I've lost balance and focus of me and I need to somehow start again from zero.

I KNOW I CAN DO THIS AND I WILL DO THIS NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES I FALL.

I am worth it. It is up to me if I lose or not lose it is my choice. No one can do this for me. I choose to control what goes in my mouth. I choose to do exercise or not do it. I have to make changes and stick to them. I need a lifestyle change there is no magic trick in this journey.

I do not have all the answers. I am still in the process. I am still struggling. I am still fighting obstacles, tempations, procastination daily. BUT.... I am not giving up until eventually everything in me (body, mind, heart, soul, thinking and my will) connect together and kick ass in this journey until we win this war.

    Hey girl! Glad you have joined us here at the spark! You asked me what kind of changes I've made...I won't lie, I've made a lot. It does take dedication but if you want to lose the weight, you have all the motivation in the world. You just need to harvest that motivation.

    As for eating, I try to make the caloric goal that spark set for me for the day. The diet stage Fast Break helps out a lot in the beginning. Record everything you eat! It's easy to search for things in their large nutrition database. I still eat some junk but I try to make sure my portions are cut down. I do not ever starve. I have good days and bad days, but as long as their are more good than bad, I am on the right track.

    Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. The sooner you start this, the better. Some people I know lose around 5 pounds just from losing water weight. I cut out soda almost completely...before I was drinking about a 2 liter of coke everyday, now I barely touch the stuff. My body feels good because of this. I recently tried green tea too and it rocks.

    Exercise is also vital! Strength training builds muscle which burns fat faster than, well, fat...Cardio helps jump up your metabolism.

    I think the main thing is I try to eat 5 main times a day. Breakfast around 8 AM, a snack around 10:30 AM, lunch around 12:30 PM, a snack around 3:30 PM and then dinner around 6:00 PM. This keeps my metabolism constantly running.

    Its a hard task, a long journey but I CANNOT EVEN EXPLAIN how much better you will feel, even after the first 10-20 pounds...my knees no longer crack, my bones don't creak, my energy has increased 10 fold and I have dropped 2 pant sizes in just 2 months! And this is all doing the healthy diet plan spark provides, no diet pills, no junk like that at all.

    I hope this wasn't too long. I had a lot to say! I wish you a whole lot of luck and if you need anything or have any questions, let me know. You can do this! You owe it to yourself!!! :D
