If it is to be, it is up to me......

I am a 42 year old mother of two (son is 16, daughter is 12) whose weight has steadily increased the past few years and I would like to get it under control. My goal weight 150 lbs, which means I have 40 lbs to lose. I just finished week 1 of C25K as I want to participate in the June Dairy Days 5K this year.

Welcome and thanks for adding me as a Spark friend! Tis is such a great suite! I am loving it each day and starting to lose the pounds. There's so much to learn, but then the consistency...that is why SP is so important to me. Stop by my Spark Page some time and keep in touch. My favorite team is No cheat weekend go boom. Search it out and stop by ...we're small but very supportive.

Take care,
Sheila

WELCOME! Nice to have you with us! I love my Sparkworld, and so will you!

Here are tips I put together to share with each new Sparkperson I meet. I hope it will be a help to you as you work toward reaching your goals!

The site can be overwhelming, take your time. Learn one topic at a time, when you get comfortable with it, move on to another area of the site. Soon you will be using all the tools SP has to offer, and loving it!

If you get stuck, and have a technical question about the site, here is a link to the Customer Support Team that is eager to help you:
http://www.sparkpeople.com/community/hel
p_support.asp
(only technical questions, if you have a nutrition, fitness, or health question, post the question in the Forums, other Spark members will eagerly try to help you!

Use your Spark Points (click on view SparkPoints) as a map to the site. It is a good way to learn your way around and you can earn points to send yourself or others Sparkgoodies.

Go back to your Start Page if you get lost, you can get almost anywhere from there.

Be sure to use the nutrition tracker. You can ensure you are getting the proper nutrients as well as tracking your caloric intake and this is so important to any weight loss journey.
Never "diet" again! Keep focusing on living a healthier lifestyle!

Read the book, THE SPARK for guidance, motivation and inspiration!

AWESOME you joined SPARKCOACH!!! It will give you the extra support, motivation, and inspiration. I joined it, and LOVING IT! Great way to stay accountable!

I had plantar fascitis for over a year... not fun... Hope you are not in too much pain. Great job joining the YMCA. Yes, don't do too much, too fast. Great to have people to work out with you, another way to stay accountable.

Log on everyday to stay focused!

NEVER QUIT!! NEVER GIVE UP!
THINK POSITIVE! If you have a bad day, let it go.
Wake up to a new day, fresh start!

One of my favorite SP quotes (from BobbyD31)
"Remember we all have Setbacks:
ACCEPT it, HANDLE it, and MOVE ON!

Remember, this is a LIFETIME JOURNEY!!

The online community on the site is wonderful! We are all here to offer support when you need it, and celebrate your successes with you. Any type of interest you have, there will be a Sparkteam for it!

Stop by my Sparkpage anytime and let me know how you are doing! I would love to hear from you!

Enjoy your journey to a healthier you!

Have FUN along the way!
