today i started out my day with sweatin to the oldies 2.oooo it was a long one .an hour long! emoticon tomorrow i will do part 3.for some reason my little boy is so mad when i start to workout,hes usually not.when i went to the store today i put on a pair of jeans,and they werent so snug,so yaaaaaaay!ive noticed my shirts r loose as well.i hope i meet my goal for my 8 week challenge.if i do that will put me at 278 lbs.boy that would be awesome!i havent weighed that since i cant even remember.i get so mad at myself when i think about how far i have let myself go.letting myself get up to 306 lbs.is just insane.but then i think about what im doing now to better myself.and when i put all of it together,im a better person for it.i have come so far.i was really down on myself .b4 my husband ,and our son came along my life was horrible.i would do ,and put my body through some things that just was not good.so i have come a long way in just a matter of a very short time.when i was searching for just a diet journal,and i tried 3 of them .i didnt like them.so i kept searching,and i found spark .it was like a second chance had been handed to me.when my dr. said i wasnt gonna live to see my son get married i thought that was it.but now ive gotten so much stronger.im working out.my diabetes is so much better.and all my friends on spark........ive met none of them,i only know what ive read on the spark pages,but its like a whole new family.just one that doesnt judge me.lol.well i have wrote enough for tonight.phewwww i am tired now.feel alot better.good night. emoticon emoticon

    YaY You !!! Sweatin to the oldies is long isnt it LOL.... at least Richard keeps it fun , I spend alot of time laughing while doing it ! Have you tried Biggest loser cardio max? You can set up your own workout and make it either a 40, 50 or 60 minute workout...Bob does level one, jillian does level 2 and I havet made it to level 3 yet, but wow when I am done I feel muscles that I didnt even know I had LOL
    I am like you, when I found SP I was at wits end.... healthwise I felt so bad that I didn't think I was going to be here in 5 years, and in just 2 months I already feel like a new person... the weight isnt coming off as fast as I think it should LOL.... and I just realized I was in a "diet rut" bored with the foods that have gotten me through the last two months, but now that I realized that I am going to shake it up and all will be right with the world LOL
    I also realized that my body has gotten used to the workouts I have been doing so time to shake that up too !
    I am so happy that I am getting to know you... We wont meet most people from SP , but I feel closer to all of my friends on here than I would normally in real life I guess because we can share our stories, our triumphs, our downfalls and not be judged or belittled ! I love how happy I get when I read what others are feeling and write what I am feeling... there is so much support here and such amazing people !
    We will do this !! Remember...... if you EVER need someone to chat with or vent to I am here for you ! I am on and off the computer all day, so I am always around :)

    Here is a BIG HUG for you ! You are LOVED !
