Fitness Minutes: 75

My Goals:
I want to lose enough weight to get off medication and be able to do things like go mountain climbing, kayaking (without getting stuck in the kayak!) and similar outdoor activities.

My Program:
Have to start all over again. My eating is not as good as it should be, but hopefully if I can discipline myself on here again, I will be on the right track. Recovering from foot surgery, so hopefully will be able to exercise really soon. I am sooooo not looking forward to it! But I know it must be done and will be easier once I start.

Personal Information:
My name is Jo and I live near Knoxville. I am 43 am single and have a great teenage son. I like to read, write and watch movies. I also love scrapbooking, sewing and design and several other crafts.

Other Information:
If you keep looking behind you, you won't see what's right in front of you. Me

That's awesome you did so great at dinner! You're doing so great. And it's amazing that you went out with your dogs and got some activity in all while having a boot cast on! emoticon
And I've already added you as a friend.
Keep up the great work!

Thanks so much for the sparkgoodie Jo. I am doing better every day. Just got back from a weeks vacation, and lost 6 lbs while I was gone( I usually always gain). Hubby and I walked everyday, and I stuck to my eating plan. I hope all is going well for you. Have a great Sunday!

Thank you for spending the time to read my blog - I think having just put that blog together - the first time I have actually put the developing story together like that and now the penny has dropped - and I am beginning to realise what I have done!! So - I'm just a bit slow in the uptake!! LOL!!
However it has proved one thing to me that if I can do it anyone can do it and you will find that the results are way beyond your wildest dreams!!

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support. You're off to a great start already!

emoticon

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' including many with the same challenges, circumstances and goals. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways.

Some of the teams I like and think you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan - but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals including gaining weight or saving money - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

emoticon

If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

emoticon

Be sure to read and 'study' The Spark book because it outlines the overall program and is compatible with most types of eating plans. If you haven't already discovered the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check it out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

emoticon

Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I have - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
