Keeping positive and moving. Looking forward to another great year! And so far so GOOD!

Try do something every day... even if it's small.

SparkPeople was the spark that got me back on track!
After letting myself go for years, I'm back to where I should and want to be!

Working at a computer all day can take its toll especially with inactivity building up over the years (add in coffee with sugar and donuts... UGH!). For me it built up to 215 lbs. Christmas '06. After looking at video footage of me walking by the camera Christmas morning, my eyes were opened. My thought was "is that really me?"

Fortunately after speaking to a friend (see Glamazon2002) at work we decided to start a competition "Move It AND Lose It"
to drop the weight and get healthier. This site was the perfect tool to keep daily track of my progress from visualizing to tracking food and workouts, I was able to see all those small steps build up to the path which led me to my goal! Yes, I won the competition at work, but more importantly I won my health by losing 49 lbs. (from January 07 through August 07)!

Not wanting to stop there, I've set a new goal. Not a goal of weight loss but one of fat loss. I'm reaching for single digit body fat percentage! And with the help of SparkPeople, friends and will power, I'll be there soon!

As an update on my current goal, I've increased my weight (my lowest was 169 lbs with body fat percentage at 16) to 184 lbs but my body fat is at 12! Feeling healthy and strong (although with all the yard work I'm glad I've been working out!) =)

Still progressing, moving forward... one (sometimes small) step at a time! Thanks for all your support and encouragement spark friends!
