Doing it For Us

Hi, my name is Liz and I am a fulltime mother of three (8, 6, and 3 yrs of age) as well as a fulltime college student. From an early age (~13 yrs of age) I have struggled with my weight but it really took a toll on me after having three kids and taking on too much at one time with work and school. With little sleep, stress, and genetics all against me I have struggled to lose all the excess weight I have put on over the past 8 years (+100lbs). I am motivated to lose the weight before I am ...

With little sleep, stress, and genetics all against me I have struggled to lose all the excess weight I have put on over the past 8 years (+100lbs). I am motivated to lose the weight before I am thirty because I feel if I don't now it will never happen for me. Its of great importance to not only lose this weight for me but for my family as well!

Welcome, Liz, to the Capital District Spark Team!
Best wishes as you start on this road to health and fitness. You can do it! I like your motto that failure is not an option. I have on my page that failure is giving up what we want most for what we want now. That makes each and every day, each and every meal, full of choices that will help us toward our goal or keep us from it!
How will you choose today?
peace, Fran
co-leader Capital District

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- it's also lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together.

I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized here instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, but also to maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals including gaining weight or saving money - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place! You're off to a great start already, just by posting here and I think you'll be at your goal before you know it!
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 have - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

Please check out SparkTeams - you can choose them by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways. I'd like to invite you to join the Virtual Walk/Run/Cycle Thru the US @ exercise.lbl.gov SparkTeam - it's a really fun way to track your walking while you travel 'virtually' across America from Virginia to Oregon. Go to the SparkTeam page at www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i
ndividual.asp?gid=19805 for more information.

Some of the other teams that are good for beginners 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!!

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. It takes awhile to get the hang of the site but you can earn SparkPoints and Trophies while you explore and learn!

I wish you the best on your journey!!!

Hello and welcome to Spark People! Congratulations on your success so far.

This is such an awesome site. It is filled with wonderful, supportive people and lots of great resources, information, and tools. Since joining SP I've already lost 65 pounds! But more importantly, I've gained healthy habits that will last me a lifetime.

Good luck on your journey, and stop by my Spark page any time.

You can do this!
