Hi and welcome! I am new to this SparkPeople thing myself, 5 days now... I never stick to such things that require so much tracking and organization, but I can honestly say that this time it's working.
I may not be in the same shoes as others on here in terms of how much they want to lose, but I think I can safely say that we all want to look and feel healthier as well as strengthen our mental and spiritual energies.
I used to go all out when I exercised but this time I've changed my approach drastically on how I want to get healthier and lose weight. All I did at on day 1 to day 4 was walk everyday for 30~40 minutes, drink 4 bottles of water everyday, lessen my intake of carbs by substituting rice for simple vegetables, and regulate my sleep patterns for 8 hours of sleep. I stepped on the scale today, day 5, and noticed 5.5 lbs dropped off from just that alone.
I hope for you to maintain positive, release negative energies, stay on track, and most importantly never give up.
