I have enjoyed the benefits of this site for over ten years. I have made many wonderful (cyber) friends and enjoy all the tips and advice. I hope to be the best that I can be in this lifetime. I thank GOD for all of my blessings.

Looking back, I have slowly gained weight over many years. I have to find a program that will work for me so that I can reverse this trend, take off the weight and keep it off. I do NOT want something that is a quick fix such as a pill or meal kit program diet. I was prescribed pills about 20 years ago that took off the weight but I gained it back plus much more when I quit taking them.

I was a skinny child but overweight almost all of my adult life. Other than my weight and thyroid, which is controlled with medication, I am healthy.



Member Since: 7/27/2009

My Goals:
I really need to put more focus on myself and getting into shape. I have to feel better about myself and be able to look at myself in pictures without wanting to cry.

Goal 1 - lose 10 lbs
Take it one baby step at a time adding a goal after each is met

Ultimate Goal: feel comfortable in my own skin.


My Program:
Incorporate exercise in everyday activities as much as possible
Eat 6 or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day
Limit sweets - and eat clean
Drink at least 10 glasses of water each day
Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night



Personal Information:
My name is April and I have been married to my loving husband for almost 36 years. We have two beautiful daughters who have grown into beautiful, successful young ladies and one son-in-law. We live in the country on a few acres of land with our dogs who love to run and explore.


Other Information:
I love exercise and feel great when I've accomplished a challenge.
My biggest challenge is eating. I'm not a binge eater but I have a hard time staying on track. It's too easy for me to eat out with friends or family and fall back into the same routine that got me into this shape. I'm trying very hard to limit portions and make healthy choices.

    I think that all of your notes are a wise choice to keep you on track--not goofy at all. I have tried to find some old pictures of myself when I was thin but it's been so long ago that I am having trouble. I will put that at the top of my "to do" list and get right on it, though. THANKS for all of your advice and tips.

    Hi there new friend!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. I so appreciate your sweet comments. As a result I popped over to your page and see that you are a wonderful mom! If you'd like we can be Spark buddies and walk down this pathway to health together. Feel free to check out any of my friends and my fab Spark teams particularly Earth Angels and Soul Collage. They are a wonderful group of friends and offer amazing support and encouragement!!

    I'm no expert by any means but the way I lost the 14 lbs in 3 months was simply tracking all of my calories. I used a great form found on Simply Eating and just printed it off for each day. I tried my best to stay around 1200-1400 calories daily. I found a really 'cute' pic of myself at a weight that I really felt good at...about 135-140ish and taped it to my bathroom mirror and I look at it every day when I'm brushing my teeth. Under the pic I wrote an affirmation "I am healthy, wealthy, and wise" emoticon okay are you laughing yet? My DH thinks I'm a little nuts... emoticon but he's used to it after 31 years of marriage... emoticon then...I put another 'cute' pic of myself on the fridge door..and under that pic I wrote a little message 'think about it!' on a danger sign emoticon ..I know these are just goofy little head games that I play with myself...but so far so good..and that's what I'm talkin' about! emoticon emoticon emoticon I'm wishing you the BEST of luck!! Keep me posted, and don't let me down okay..okay..well then awesome!
