I'm new to SparkPeople

Saturday, October 24, 2009

Ok...I've tried lots of diets like all of us. I've paid big money for some. Sure they work--for awhile. I know I need life changes not a new diet and this looks like a place I might be able keep my motivation and not throw more money away on a temporary fix. I find the food diary a bit hard/slow to use so I'm going to keep using the one on my iPod.

Looking for any help to keep my focus and not keep running to the food without thinking!

    Wow! Thank you EVERYONE for the comments and encouragment! I was surprised you all read it already! My first day went pretty well....just taking it one day at a time. And since you all have noticed me I guess I better get off the computer and do my yoga. Ok, and drink a glass of water!

    Food diary/nutrition tracker is terrific once you get things loaded into your favourites -- and also the food grouping feature speeds things up (e.g. put in all the ingredients for a typical breakfast, or salad).

Welcome! I hope you enjoy SparkPeople; there is a lot of support and terrific resources!

    HI I just recently got started too. Good luck. I found that logging and recording your food is the first great step. I have been more consistent with that. Now it's getting on that exercise track. I am having trouble after 12 shifts and fatigue, but will get going. Good luck and enjoy. emoticon

    Glad to have you in the family. We are all one big happy family that supports one another. Congratulations on the decision to make this a life change and not another diet. There are plenty of diets and they don't last nor does their results. You make a lifetime change and keep to it, it keeps with you forever, along with the results!
