emoticon Thirtyweeks, you have come to the right place, just take it one day at a time and if you stumble get right back up. This whole weightloss thing is about learning more about ourselves and improving ourselves so we stop turning to food and learn to participate in other fun and fulfilling activities. Congrats for being brave to take the first step, whether 20 or 200 it's all the same, improving our lives...You are worth it and we're here with you on your journey. emoticon

emoticonemoticonemoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticonemoticonemoticon
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!

emoticon Anxiety. I have no idea why I am experiencing anxiety about letting others know that I am embarking on this gigantic weightloss-health attainment journey (~200lbs).
---I just answered myself: it is a huge undertaking for me. Having tried before, I am afraid I'll do it a while, turn my back on it and go back to the path of self destruction. I don't want to sound sad and defeated...but I know that's how it sounds.

I took this username because, if it takes an average of 30 days for a behavior to become a habit then 30 weeks should ingrain it in me for a lifetime, right?! emoticon So THIS IS week 1.
---help me, and I will help you right back.

Moving toward 30 weeks of attention to exercise and eating well between 2/1/2014 and the end of the year.


162 Days since:  I quit professional sitting!
