I joined SparkPoints on 01/27. but didn't weigh in until a few days later. Very slowly, over the days, I've poked around on the website. I've learned from the articles on the site, from the SparkFriends...The friends and teams have provided encouragement, not always directly, but also by sharing their stories, posting their experiences.
I have been surprised by the consequences of some of my food choices - coachable moments! I know I have a very long way to go with respect to exercise, but the beauty of SparkPeople is that, with the nutrition and fitness tabs, I can't keep putting on blinders.
Tomorrow morning, I will step on the scale. I have no idea what the result will be. I had a few days when I was over calories or over fat (or both). I also had several days of getting the water in. The exercise is still not where it should be, but, at this point,moving at all is progress! Regardless of the number on the scale tomorrow, I won't be elated or disappointed. It is only one metric. More important is the lifestyle change because that is the path to the the end result - a happier, fuller life with (I hope) enough lenghth and quality to see the next generation grow up!
