Hiya. Welcome back to SP! I saw your post on the Buddy Finder board and thought I'd drop by your SP page. I also have a lot of weight to lose (200+) and just recently started working on it (again). I think setting small goals is a great way to start. I started with a small goal (small 2me anyway) of 50 pounds by my birthday and I'm happy to say right now I'm on track. I would also suggest you track all your foods. I know from personal experience that that alone has helped so much in understanding my own eating habits better. PS I'm adding you as a spark friend feel free to do the same.
WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~
Good afternoon to you! I saw your post on the buddy finder. Just stopping by to let you know you can do this if you really want it! Don't be afraid to get started and don't let anything stop you!
Add a weight tracker with your weight so others will know you are with them in this! Add photos of yourself, so others know you are a real person just like they are! Don't be afraid to put these things/yourself out there!
Don't wait until tomorrow, just start today...go for a walk even if only for 10 or 20 minutes! You can do it!!! I'll check in tonight and see if you got started!
