Hi! I'm teresa and I'm from Roanoke! Actually I am in NC as of now while my husband finishes grad school. I am working on my teacher certification at the same time. I have been so busy with school that I have made no friends down here in NC....I miss Rke and can't wait to move back home in another yr...So I totally know how it is to be too busy to meet people. I am also new here and just learning my way around...haven't really started the diet yet but trying to build my motivation!! sad I know....anyway, I hope you are achieving your goals! 3158 days ago
Hi, My name is Tameka and I would like to welcome you to SP. This is a really great and helpful site whether you looking to lose weight, maintain weight, tone up, or just live a healthier lifestyle. The encouragement and motivation you get from other members is so awesome. It's also motivating for me to browse through other members pages and see there progress because it's not some paid advertisement with paid actors saying "you can do it to". Most people are willing to give and receive encouragement, motivation, and help in any way.
If you like be sure to join teams that interest you and join some of the challenges they have to offer. The challenges for me are really great because they help me to stay on track, friendly competition is a great Motivator.
Last but not least, Use the Nutrition Tracker to TRACK EVERYTHING YOU EAT. This was the most important first step for me. It's eye-opening to see how many calories you consume without knowing it, and it's easier to stay on track if you are constantly aware of how many calories you've eaten and how many you have left for the day.
Congratulations on making the first step towards a healthier lifestyle, it won't always be easy but the outcome is a longer healthier life that keeps us around to do the things we love with the people whom we love, which makes the effort worthwhile! I would like to invite you to 2 teams that I am on. These teams are full of wonderful members that are willing to lend help, motivation and encouragement in any kind of way. The names are America Next Top Loser & Miss Fat (Fabulous and Thick)). Iím not sure of the links to get there but you can go on my page scroll down to my team section and click on the icons. So go ahead check us out and decide if you would like to join us. Much Love and Success***Tameka***
