Awesome! I am East side of Federal Way, border of Auburn. We could meet up at the Commons or the Supermall or rotate between them? As the weather gets nice again we could meet and do the Auburn trail. I am short and not super fast, but I do guarantee a good workout. Drop me an email of days/times you are available. I am pretty much available every day. 2146 days ago
Well hello! Nice to meet you. I wish you luck on your weight loss journey as well!
I'm glad I've got a buddy on this site. It's been hard lately, this staying focused and keeping my eyes on the prize. Last week, for the first time since starting Sparkpeople.com, I didn't log my food. I felt terrible. I'm not sure what happened but I lost my steam. I am, however! getting back on track! I miss one day on this site, I miss a week. I need the encouragement to keep me going. I hope we can talk back and forth, keeping the other to keep going! Congrats on the new baby! How exciting. The first 6 months are the best! 2146 days ago
to Spark People. You've found a great site with lots of tools and information to help you along the way. I know it can be a bit overwhelming at first, but here are some starter tips.
There is a great starter check list on Spark People that might contain some information to get you going. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_star ted.asp
Also, some great tutorial videos to get you started here: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat ion_articles.asp?id=1182
And here's a link to a great Secrets of Success slideshow: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/slidesh ow.asp?show=39
Also, notice on your start page at the top right is a feature called Spark People Insider. This contains a different link daily to a lot of cool features on Spark.
In addition on your start page, if you scroll all the way to the bottom, you will find that there are stages set up to get you started in the right direction with little steps at a time. Little steps, slow and steady – that's what got me started in the right direction and it is what is helping me stay on track after some life altering experiences.
I've had some tough experiences in recent months and am happy to say that I have found my friends on SparkPeople absolutely supportive. I've found in SparkPeople an anchor that has kept me coming back to my healthy lifestyle when in the past I would have dished it completely under the circumstances. It has truly been a life changing experience for me and I hope you find it the same.
