    Just stopping by to wish you a good weekend and a little reminder keep going! Every small step counts and there will always be minor set-backs on the way to true success!

    Thanks for stopping by my page. I batch cook soup -it has 2 1/2 servings of veggies in it, 1 serving of healthy grain and 1/2 servings of protein (beans). It makes exactly 5 servings (convenient since there are 5 days to my usual work week...lol). I'd be happy to share the recipe if you like!

    Have a great day!!

    I was going to comment on your status, but I got a little too rambly emoticon

    Back when I started here, I think it was the community involvement that got me over that first month hump. I'd started SP a couple times before and lost it after a couple weeks, but this time it stuck. Some tips:

    Tracking - start out with just getting in the habit. Don't worry about what you're eating or portion control, just try to make it a point to track every meal for a week. As tempting as it is to start off fresh eating perfectly, it's actually very useful to have an idea of what your 'before' eating habits look like. I found that my breakthrough in terms of tracking came after the first week. I had a 'cheat' meal on the weekend, and instead of writing it off (or even giving up because I'd failed), I tracked it and moved on. I don't know what it was, but that was the moment that I realized I could keep going with this for months.

    Exercise - I pulled out every trick in the book to get into this habit. I posted status updates asking friends to give me a kick in the bum down to the gym (I still do, actually), challenged sparkbuddies to join me in a run. I stick stickers on a calendar for every workout I do. This is where community involvement is great - blog your frustrations and successes, and build up a network of supportive people. In fact, I find I get almost as much out of cheering other people on as I do asking for support myself.

    So, with that in mind, I'm giving you a challenge for this Tuesday: Do some form of physical activity today (even if it's just 15 minutes of dancing around your living room), and update your status telling us what you did..

    I'll be checking back to see! emoticon
