It's harder than they think

My name is Courtney and I am only 20 weighing in at 328lbs. This is the first time I have ever done something like this, and it's hard to even type my weight. I have little time for exercise being that I work 2 jobs, one full time and one part time in the evening...but I know that working is no excuse. I am taking a stab at this, being that other things I have tried have not worked. I don't make a lot of money and it's very expensive to eat healthy. Any support and motivational convos are more ...

I need to make this change now before it's too late. I'm young and I want to live and have fun, somthing that my weight is keeping me from doing right now!

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.

I don't have experience with your injury and I'm not a fitness instructor or physical therapist. However, there are so many videos with things you might be able to do, maybe you can figure out which will work for you while you heal. Having a foot problem myself, I found that a stationary bike worked well for me and there is a guy who does rehab at my gym who does walk every day with his crutches! It may not be quite as comfortable and definitely not fast but it does burn a lot of calories to use a crutch so I hope you can figure out an interim plan for yourself!

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams 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 - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

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

If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them 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 do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
