"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
Hope you are having a great week so far! I do Jillian's "30 Day Shred" which I love, but I just got her "Shred It With Weights" a couple of weeks ago and have done it a few times. They are both good, but I think I like 30 Day Shred more. You'll have to get it on Netflix and see what you think! Definitely a good workout, especially when you're short on time :) 1982 days ago
Saw your post in the preschool team, and have to say I feel your pain. I have a 3 year old daughter and had a baby boy in July and my 3 year old turned into a demon child about 2 months before I had him til about 2 weeks ago when things started to turn around little by little with her. She has thrown fits, defied, yelled back, cried, scream and just been out-right horrible. Which is in part due to me gaining back all the weight I lost after I had my son. It does end I guess someday. Everyone says 3 is worse than 2 and I highly agree with that. Message me if you ever need a mommy rant to someone who is going through it right now. I have your sympathetic ear. Stay strong! 2004 days ago
I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.
In my experience, SparkPeople is like a in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!
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.
If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.
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 do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
