A healthy lifestyle is a process - more of a journey than a destination. SP with all its features and tools can help you along the way and with the support of its members, well, it's a recipe for success!

Don't expect to change everything overnight. It takes small steps to get from where you are to where you want to be. Just think about The Tortoise and The Hare. You can win the race if you stay focused and take slow, steady steps to get there.

"Moving More & Eating Less" works so try getting in some exercise everyday even if it's only in 10 min. increments - it all adds up in the end. Try making healthier food choices and watch your portions. And tracking your food does make you so much more accountable for everything you put in your mouth.

Surveys have shown that participants in Message Boards lost more weight and stayed with their program longer than non-participants so come by as often as you can. Here at SP you'll find all kinds of motivation and support from people who have similar goals as you do. We are all taking this journey together and we truly want to see each other succeed!!

Wishing you the very best as you work towards your goals!!!

Hi everyone:
I have read a lot about this site from other success stories and decided to give it a try. I couldn't believe the number I saw on the scale when I stepped on it the other day, so I decided that I have a lot to live for and that if I don't get healthy now I never will. So here I am!! I tend to get discouraged quickly so I am hoping to be able to get motivation from here and in return will help motivate all of you!
