Getting Started

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Day 1 - have spent several hours trying to familiarize myself with this web site, and have managed to get lost numerous times today! Just heading out for our long dog walk now - Toby, my little dog (half Yorkshire Terrier and half Toy Manchester Terrier - is my physiotherapist who has been forcing me to get up and keep walking after I slipped on frost on my back deck taking the garbage out, and crushed my lumbar 1 vertebra and broke my tailbone. He does his job very well!

Perhaps I should say here that I have already lost 45 pounds from my all time highest weight of 302 pounds, but have been plateaued now for over 6 months which has prompted me to look into SP with the hope that I can once again kick myself onto the downhill spiral!

    Welcome to SP. It's a great site! Be sure and sign up for Spark America and when you set up your exercises, just remove any you can't do or don't want and put in those you do. Be sure and schedule a day for cardio so you have access to the "other exercises" page where the walking, housework, playing with children etc. are to be found. When you are done, set up your Appointment calendar to send you reminders and when they come, click on the link then fitness and just check them off as you do them. Such a great feature. Use your spark points page to help you use and learn all the fantastic tools we have at this site. Visit others pages and get to know them better. Again, welcome to a great site. emoticon
