    emoticon on posting to the message boards. It is an excellent way to get the help and support you need for the journey! emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Some thoughts and suggestions as I say emoticon to Spark People.
    emoticon This sight has so much to offer! One of the easiest ways to learn a lot about what it has to offer is to go to your "My SparkPoints" tracking Page. Next to each opportunity to earn Sparkpoints there is a link that will take you to the place on the site that helps you complete the task. Some are one time opportunities, others are daily tasks. Complete as many tasks as possible per day.
    emoticon don't emoticon to the temptation of making the journey all about the numbers. It is not about pounds taken off or inches trimmed, it is all about creating a healthier and more fit you. emoticon
    emoticon Be on the lookout for the many, many, many non-scale non-tape measure victories you will achieve. Feeling healthier, breathing easier, enjoying activities that were once a drudgery, trying something new and enjoying it, choosing a healthy snack versus an unhealthy option, choosing a less than healthy food option over a decadent food option! The possibilities for non-scale victories are ENDLESS. emoticon
    Some things to remember: emoticon drink plenty of water every day!
    emoticon sleep well, it is probably more important than you know. emoticon healthier every day. emoticon Don't go the way of total deprivation, it is apt to set you up for failure and a binge that will leave you feeling devastated. Look for opportunities to emoticon every day. emoticon when you need to --it is healthier than emotional eating! Find ways to emoticon emoticon emoticon exercise that you ENJOY. The right form of exercise is the one you can stick with regularly!!! Something else may burn more calories in a shorter time, but if it makes you give up you won't burn any calories! emoticon
    emoticon MAKE EVERY STEP COUNT. Even steps that seem to move you backwards or to the side have a purpose. Sometimes it is just to get another look at something you passed by without noticing.
    Perhaps most importantly from my perspective DONíT LOSE weight or inchesÖTAKE THEM OFF, emoticon KICK THEM TO THE CURB. You arenít interested in FINDING them again. GET RID OF THEM through hard work, determination, accountability, whatever it takes!!!
    Finally, join teams, make friends, encourage others, be encouraged, take challenges, write out SMART goals regularly and track! Track! TRACK!!! It will help with both accountability and motivation, and You will be glad you did!!!
    Feel free to stop by my page, let me know if there is anything I can do to help you in the journey!

    emoticon Welcome to SP !!!

    If you return to this site every day, it will help for motivation and encouragement. If you want to lose weight, it would be very unusual to do it without tracking your calories. I've found that I need three things:
    1) track calories and maintain a calorie deficit each day (500 calorie deficit = about one pound per week loss)
    2) cardio at least five days per week (20 to 30 min)
    3) strength training at least five days per week (20 minutes)

    Read the articles here for information. Read member blogs for motivation and encouragement. It's a daily thing to do but if you will be consistent, you will get the results.

    Good luck!
