I love your post on motivation. That honestly sounds like one of the most enjoyable ideas I have ever heard. I recently switched to skinny mocha's at starbucks, and that's what it reminded me of. I hope you were able to get out and go for your walk. And I hope you had a lovely afternoon:]
You have earned some bragging rights and it is time for you to get a "success" icon - here is how to do it:
1. On your SparkPage - go to “Edit my SparkPage”. 2. At the lower right hand corner, below your profile image is a link that will allow you if you want to change this image. 3. It will then give you the option of uploading an image from your photo gallery or you can choose one from SP's “success” gallery. (I’ve lost 5 pounds with SparkPeople, I’ve reached a goal with SparkPeople etc). 4. You can use this as your profile picture or you can add it to your photo gallery - the choice is yours. 5. Don’t forget to click on “Save My Changes” and you are done.
You took the first step - you found SP and signed up. It is a slow process and if you just stick to the first two weeks I'm sure you'll see progress. I'm new too and am very excited about this site and besides it's free!
Hang in there and remember we're all in the same boat - rowing hard :-) 3256 days ago
