seriously?

When I stepped on the scale I couldn't help to ask myself "seriously? how could you let this happen?". I've been here before and promised myself I would not ever be back, but here I am. On the positive side, I know I can do this, I've done it before. I remember once when someone asked me how I lost the weight before I said "well, it is not a casual thing. you can never be casual about it." I'm a busy mom and wife, online instructor, and PTA volunteer...taking it one day at a time.

You have come to the right place, my friend, for tons of info about living a healthy life without depriving yourself.
Here are a few tips:
* learn to use the nutrition and fitness trackers- it gets much easier after a while and is CRUCIAL to your success
* read a lot of blogs and success stories- VERY motivating!
*join a few teams of like minded people - there are literally thousands of groups to choose from- and make some new friends- then you can encourage each other- donít join too many, though, as you may lose that helpful personal connection
*try to earn sparkpoints- it's a fun way to learn your way around here and you can send sparkgoodies to yourself or others
*if you get lost- go back to the Start page- you can get almost anywhere from there
Good luck on this exciting new chapter of your life!
Never~ ever~ ever ~ ever give up!
