got spark?

I always think I'm doing well - I eat healthy, I exercise vigorously and I make a weekly commitment to stay on track Monday through Friday (I do give myself a break on the weekends) - but it turns out, I'm really not. I'm constantly plagued by this extra 30 pounds. I'm fairly sure I know the culprit - red wine. I can't seem to get enough of it. Even though I limit myself to drinking it just on the weekends, it's sabotaging my weight loss goals. It's time to get serious...it's time to get ...

Welcome to the Des Moines team! I love wine too. I buy a bottle and know full well it will only last me one day and rarely two. So I only buy one bottle at the store when getting groceries. Knowing I'd have to go out to get more really helps me stop and think. Another idea could be to allow yourself one glass of wine with your meals, then perhaps by the weekend you won't feel deprived? Just an idea. I hope you'll visit the Des Moines team whenever you need support or have some advice to share! We'd love to hear from you!

keeping track of my food intake so far helped me to see where my bad habits were hiding. use this website to the fullest and you will see where you need to tweek your diet and exercise routine in order to see the results you desire.

as someone said to me - you get out of sparkpeople what you put into it.

so give it your all!! emoticon

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

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' - 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

If you haven't 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!
