ONE DAY AT A TIME - LITTLE STEPS MAKE MOUNTAIN CHANGES

I have struggled with my weight for 16 years - really had enough. I had a gastric band fitted 2 years ago and am no lighter now than I was then. Lessson learned - there are no magic wands.

I have a holiday coming up and I want to at least be comfortable in a size 14/16 - haven't been that in soooooooooo long.

Would love help and encouragement from other people on here, so please be in touch and share your top tips, your highs and your lows xx

Yes, I have the inspiration to meet my goals. But still my mind hasn't caught up. emoticon Still not eating like I should but I REFUSE to quit. It really has to kick in sooner or later.

emoticon for your comment on my blog 'I remember.' I do remember so well what it was like when I first started with SparkPeople, how bad I felt and how impossible it seemed that I'd ever reach my goals. You can do this; take it one day, one choice at a time, and make small changes. The small changes add up as you keep going; hang in there and believe in yourself, this IS possible!

Welcome aboard Superloser3. I joined the end of May, and I feel stronger than i've felt in years. I love all the site, it's so extensive and there is a gigantic amount of information to help you reach your goal. Congratulations on joining and holding yourself accountable to reaching your goals. I too have had some good days and bad, and I chalk it up to life, when you fall, simply pick yourself right back up emoticon emoticon

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

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. You're off to a great start already, just by posting here!

emoticon

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' including many with the same challenges, circumstances and goals. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways.

Some of the teams I like and think you might like 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!!

emoticon

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon 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' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, 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!

emoticon

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.

emoticon

Be sure to read and 'study' The Spark book because it outlines the overall program and is compatible with most types of eating plans. Right now there is a 'special offer' on Amazon to get it in electronic format for just $1.99 - you can download the free Kindle reader for your computer or read it on a smartphone so you don't have to actually own a Kindle device to take advantage of this generous offer - so check it out!!!

emoticon

If you haven't already discovered the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check it 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.

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!
