My Goals:
My goals are, to lose 60 pounds, get in the habit of exercising regularly (and by that, I mean, no less than three times a week) and to get my energy back. I also want to see a dosage decrease or to have my hypertension medications discontinued as a result of loss of weight and living a healthier lifestyle.

I feel if I lose 60 pounds, my long-term goal, I'll be able to enjoy the benefits that come as a result of my new choices: better health and a slimmer body.

My Program:
I'm just beginning AGAIN! This time I will set realistic goals so that I can stick by them.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I visited here MANY days before I joined the community. There is so much EXCELLENT information here. After looking around so long, I decided to become a member.

I am surprised there aren't any fees assosciated with this website.

When I did the Google search, I used the keywords "free diets and weight loss tips" but of course most of the sites that claimed to be free were actually selling memberships to several "popular" diet programs.

Here on SparkPeople, I looked everywhere I thought they'd be listed, if any, but never found any fees at all, which was a very pleasant surprise.

To the owner(s) of this great site, I must say to you that you are doing a GREAT service.

Thank you so much for providing this web site and making so much available here for people like myself—someone who really needs help but can't afford to pay for programs that require fees and the purchase of costly pre-packaged foods.

    Hi Jaxxee!

    I jumped here from your comment on the "Start a new habit." board.

    I have been like you - not having enough energy to exercise, in order to get more energy. The weight itself will do that, so using both the nutrition and fitness tracker will put it in black and white for you.

    I have been walking daily since February 18th, 2007, and have found a determination to keep that streak going. When I began, I was winded, and before that date, could talk myself out of walking very easily. On April 1st I walked the 3.1 mile challenge, which was a stretch, but my shorter walks seem like a breeze now, so don't hesitate to mix it up. I think the boredom and routine can beat us as much as anything.

    You will be in my prayers, as you seek to improve your health and fitness.
