A belated hi and welcome to the team emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Keep trying - you CAN do it - believe in yourself!

Hey all!! This looks like a fun & amazing group to be a part of!! While I am not new to Sparkpeople, I am just starting to take advantage of all that there is on this site... When I started on Sparkpeople I was at my heaviest, and now looking back, when I started I wasn't quite there, ready do the work that would need to be done to get to where I knew I needed to be. Here is my transformation story:

My transformation story is more of a journey of many ups and downs... I realized for a while that I needed to make a change, because I really wasn't liking who I was seeing looking back at me in the mirror (at my heaviest that I weighed myself I was 234 lbs.). I would exercise, then get discourage because I wasn't seeing the results like I thought I should with the amount of effort I was putting into the workouts. Then because it wasn't coming off, I had gotten it in my head that "I wasn't deserving of losing weight & this is just who I was suppose to be" so that would lead to eating whatever I wanted & not caring... so the cycle just continued. I was one who would try things (i.e. slim fast, whey protein powder) blame it on medical reasons (which were never the reason) and "want" the change. It wasn't until last fall that I knew I needed to make the change, it clicked, I was finally mentally ready to do it. I just really didn't know where to look because everything that I had tried I had failed at it. I had seen on tv different shows talking about detox this & detox that, so I thought hey I am going to research it & try to find something that I wouldn't be spending hours on end, worrying about "anal leakage" as I had seen on some of the boxes. Who the hell wants that as a side affect??? This girl didn't. Then low & behold, a friend of mine had posted a comment on a post on Facebook that my now good friend, had about doing the Ultimate Reset & there was one spot left. I looked into it right then, commented on her post that I was interested, and jumped feet first into something I was admittedly a little skeptical would work for me. I mean why would it, nothing else did... Boy that was the best decision I had ever made. It has led me to be the person that I am today, and a person who is doing things I never imagined I would be doing. Dreaming for things I never thought I was "deserving" to have. To date, from my heaviest weight, I am down 56.5 lbs. and I am not done yet. I still have 22.5 lbs., to go & many people to help who are ready to make that change. I have found my spark again.

I am so happy that I found my spark again!! I am in the best healthy I have been in since I can remember!! I have found a passion in fitness & helping people achieve goals to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. I run online support & accountability groups on Facebook. I am proof the products work & want to share that with as many people who want it too! If you want to know more, and if this is something that you may be interested in, let's connect! Feel free to send me a message!!
