Fitness Minutes: 515

My Goals:
I hope to lose some weight and be healthier and happier.

My Program:
I'm not even sure where to start. I think small and simple is the goal for the next couple weeks. Moderate exercise 3x/week, weight lifting 2x/week, and walking on weekends. Make sure I reach my goal of drinking 8 glasses of water and counting my calories daily.

Personal Information:
I graduated May 2013, got married September 2013, and am happily married and ready to start on this journey with the love of my life.

Other Information:
I have low self-esteem. I don't see myself as amazing as most people see me. I help others more than I help myself. One of my biggest goals, other than losing weight, is to gain a higher self-esteem, care more about myself, and increase my confidence level. This has been as challenging as losing weight.

Hi friend, I too started this journey needing to lose about 35 pounds. I can tell you that you need to log, log, log all of your food. This is a great site with tons of information and support. The system will work as long as you work it and you are honest. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need any help!

Good luck!

Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP eight month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all.

To celebrate your arrival at SP in this soon-to-be summer season, I would like to wish you a everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle

Welcome to SparkPeople!

Are you competitive by nature? One of my daily goals is to hit 100 SparkPoints. When I do that, I've not only read articles, I've interacted with other members by reading and commenting on their blogs and writing my own blog. 100 points gets me here and gets me active each and every day.

When I started, I made the commitment to workout daily and write a blog about it. On days when I don't feel like doing it, I think about the blog I need to write and I certainly do NOT want to write that I was lazy and did not work out.

Maintain your goals on your SparkPage (that's what all the goal-setting gurus write about) and make the goals public on your page. Write about it on your blog every day.

Weight loss = calorie maintenance, cardio, and strength. Calorie maintenance is every day, cardio is at least five days per week, and strength is 3 to 4 days per week. I believe you need all three for a successful weight loss and fitness program.

Above all, be consistent. Doing something toward you goal every day will pay big rewards over the next few months. You can do this!
