I like your attitude. I am really going to try and lose some weight also. Keeping track of my food I eat and my exercise I hope will help. I don't have time to go to the gyms, etc or I sign up with good intentions, but then life gets busy and before you know it, three or four months go by and I haven't gone to the gym.. I have a couple of dvd of Just Dance Wii, but they go way to fast for me, and I feel like I am just jumping around, not dancing. I use to teach dance when I was younger, but got away from doing that, and that is when the weight started to stay on. I miss dancing. But I don't have a dance partner now... Anyhow. I liked your post...

I am also taking control of what I eat, how much I eat and when I eat. I also am taking control of my exercise schedule. I don't go to gyms but I have found that the Just Dance games for the Xbox 360 Kinect burn the calories and give lots of fun. If you play these games with family you will burn even more calories laughing at each other trying to keep up with the game.

WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.
A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~
