Welcome!! So glad that you joined SP! There are so many things to love about Spark! Great people, threads (where you can post/comment/ask questions/share thoughts), groups, challenges, etc., etc. I know that it's really important to track, too, so I would highly recommend tracking what you eat, if/when you exercise, etc. Good luck and I hope you enjoy using SP as much I have/do! xoxo

Hi, NEEKSMOM...and emoticon emoticon emoticon to Spark! I am quite limited in the exercising I can do, and I think you'll find that what DIDS said is highly accurate. I lost all my weight despite difficulty with exercise. The key is really in what you eat, and if you track everything you eat accurately, you will not fail at this. I lost 70 + pounds and have kept it off for a couple years now, so there's every reason you can confidently feel very optimistic. The key is sticking to the calorie level that's right for you.

If you find you still need additional help, you can always have a personalized consultation with a registered dietitian (R.D.). I did that along the way, although it was for a problem related to sodium metabolism.

Don't be a stranger! Ask away...and there's also a People With Disabilities SparkTeam (of which I'm a member) -

Wishing you the very best of luck here! You can do it! emoticon

Hi Shari...

Thank you for making me feel welcome to Spark. I will check out the exercises seated. I am in my wheelchair all the time anymore.

I have a friends who went through Chemo and radiation. I know what courage and faith that takes.

I look forward to sharing our weight loss journey.

Susan

Hello and Welcome to Spark!
I am limited in what I can do with exercise because of damage to my hip from cancer and radiation treatments; I do most of my workouts seated. I have a collection of chair aerobic and chair exercise DVDs that I use.

I also belong to a chair exercise team here on Spark, if you want to check it out for some ideas, here is the link: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individ

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

80% of weightloss is in the kitchen anyway. You will do great. I started by removing all the crap from my pantry and refrigerator.

Hi....I am starting a weight loss journey. I weight 242 pounds and ready to feel better. I am disabled in a wheelchair and while I may not be able to exercise much, I can control the food I eat. Here I go on my way to feel healthier and look better!
