Thank you for your kind message GGDiva. I will take your advice to heart although work and health burdens are heavy (like me!) right now. I will resolve to do the 10 minute workout everyday for the next week and you can keep me honest!! Not sure how to e-mail you from here because there appears to be a verification step for the e-mail. In any case I will figure it out and let you know how I fare. I am at my heaviest and looks like even my largest clothes are going to be tight. It is time for a change! Anita

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!

The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!

Never give up what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

And it's easy if you follow these guidelines...

* Keep walking emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

You are not alone on this journey. We do not stand in front or behind but beside each other. You can do this. Don't get down if you make a mistake but get back up and do it again and again until you get it right. It will happen. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but you will do it if you believe in yourself. Find that strength deep inside and bring it out. Don't jump into a decision to quit and then regret it. Even a small victory is a step ahead. SparkPeople believes in you and now it is time for all of us to believe in ourselves.

My name is Anita, I am a 2-time breast cancer survivor and am in remission (Yay!). Now I would like to get in shape. I am at my heaviest and would like to have someone I can post to every week and basically check in with. I am 210 pounds and would like to shed 50 lbs in the next year. If you also want a weight loss buddy for this difficult journey - please write! Cheers A
