You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hello and Welcome Back,
You will find lots of support and motivation here. One of the best ways to stay active and accountable is to be active on your Spark Teams. Plus, that's a great way to make new friends with similar interests.
Just take it one day/ one step at a time. You can do it!

Hi Tigger,

Yes, by all means, get back to tracking. What really helped me was honest tracking of my food and workouts. I also got a fitbit and that really motivated me to increase my walking. One thing I noticed was that at 10,000 steps per day, I maintained. But at 15,000 steps per day, I lost weight. Also weight lifting helped with losing weight. I have been on a maintenance plan now for 2 years. If I start putting weight back on I go back to tracking right away.

Hi everyone!

I joined SP a couple of months ago with the full intention of "kicking off" my weight loss once again. I did ok for about 10 days then lost every bit of my ambition....again...ugh! I lost about 27lbs a year ago and now about 20 of it is back...Once again...ugh!
I know I can't do this without support from unbiased new friends. All my children have moved out and on their own so here I sit with no obligations....but nary a "spark" of ambition!
I would love some help on how to make this site work to my advantage and start tracking as much as possible....

Thanks for just being there!!!
Here I gooooooo....

Strength comes from determination!!
