I hope you continue on our path and reach your goals. Just remember slow and steady wins the race emoticon
But really check our Coach Nicole's sitting at a desk exercises, they really made a difference when I was at a desk job.
But I also tried to get others at work to walk with me and when they quit I'd go by myself or find others who would.
I started in 2007 and have only lost 38 pounds. I have kept it off but I am now uping my exercise with added water aerobics.
Just one little change done consistently makes the difference
Here is a link to the article that got me started. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_ar

YOU can do it.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

My name is Melissa and I live in AZ with my 17 month old son. I lost almost 30 lbs after I had my son and was so excited. However in the past year it has been creeping back. Thankfully I have only gained back 10 lbs. Having said all that I still need to lose 75lbs to be at my goal. I am a single mom and work full time at a desk job. I know anything I say about not exercising is an excuse, but I just cannot make myself even just go for a walk. I have noticed though since I joined spark and started tracking my food with myfitnesspal on my phone I have been more active. The past two nights I have been chasing my son around the back yard. I think im on the right track to make this time a success. I hope to continue to use this site and my tracker as tools to my success.
