I hope this site is better than the rest. My goal is to get the habit of working out and to learn new routine and of course to lose weight and be more confident than i already am Wed, 12 Aug 2015 13:32:48 EST Complete! Now What? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=15455x42559x62176118 I finished the challenge after my third or fourth attempt. Go me. <BR> <BR> Now I'm wondering what I should do next. I was using Daily Burn for my cardio portion. I could continue with that and keep doing the toning videos until I sort of max out those workouts, but I'm curious if anyone has advice on upping their fitness game post bootcamp? Tue, 4 Aug 2015 16:36:26 EST Who do I talk to about unreadable printable pages? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=15452x42559x62167698 I looked at the printable pages for days 1 & 2 week 1 workouts. There is unrelated material covering the instructions & pictures. If it makes a difference, I'm running Win 8 on my Asus desktop. Who do I talk to about this? <BR> <BR> P.S. <BR> I was able to see the instructions on the mobile page. Unfortunately it was very difficult to find the week 1 videos at all on this site. I couldn't print from my phone.

I want to push myself to do things daily that make me uncomfortable, just to prove to myself that I can do it and it won't be the end of the world. Currently, I do not enjoy going to the gym after work, and only like to go in the morning; however, the older I get, the more I like to sleep in. I am committed to completing the 28 day challenge and keep it going after it's done! <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/70...

Recalled the Spark Guy saying in a coaching video that it takes a consistent 3 months of effort before this new way of thinking and behaving really pays off in a well-established habit which becomes easier and easier.

Tried SparkPeople a couple of years back and lost some weight. Then I stopped long enough to pack on about 50 lbs. :-( I've recently divorced and am looking forward to a healthier lifestyle which will include weight loss and becoming more active (I sit at a desk all day). Since I've tried Spark before, I know it works as long as I keep with it. I'm using Spark mostly for the motivation to keep me strong when I stumble. Cheers to a healthy journey :-) Thu, 4 Jun 2015 15:58:59 EST I want to kick the soda habit. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=15452x42559x61664861 I want to kick the soda and fast food out of my life.It's been 9 days since fast food and only two since I had a soda.

As much as possible anyways. :) Mon, 1 Jun 2015 22:19:46 EST Late start? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x42559x61648900 Starting today, weighing in at 139.4.

I am in better shape now than I have been for many years, but still have about 10 more pounds to lose. I turned 50 last week and need to continue on this journey to being healthier, fitter and more toned. I also need a new routine as my old routine has gotten monotonous.

I'm starting the Advocare 24 Day Challenge in the middle of next month and I need help. I was hoping to find a few people who may be planning on taking the Challenge about the same time so we can form a support group for motivation, recipe ideas, encouragement, all the things we need to help each other reach our goals. Personally, I'm hoping to lose about 10 or 15 pounds and am looking forward to the Challenge to jump start my weight loss. Is anyone else game? Sun, 24 May 2015 20:07:39 EST Hi http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x42559x61539628 Today is my day one. I've been doing squats and crunches for a while, and I'll be starting my full-time workout on June 1. However, I wanted to build a support group as I've always found it is easier to shoot for a goal if there's someone that's got your back. Best of luck to everyone and I hope that this group helps you get to your goals!

I'm trying to commit myself to working out daily for 28 days straight, just 10 minutes a day. Hopefully this habit sticks. <BR> <BR> I'm hoping to get some weight loss and toning out of it, and hopefully lay the foundation for a healthy lifestyle that I can maintain consistently after the challenge is over!

Since then, I haven't done much exercising. My goal is to lose another 10 lbs in this challenge and hopefully keep in the habit of exercising once this challenge is over. Doing these challenges helps keep me accountable. I also really like the videos. Tue, 10 Feb 2015 15:50:23 EST Hi!

I may do another round of the fix later, but I saw this and thought it would be helpful with a variety of workouts and a schedule to follow.

If the weather doesn't permit walking, I'll workout for 10 mins to a cardio video indoors. The reason I am only committing to 10 minutes is because I know that I can do that everyday.

I am a 35-year-old guy that is working hard to shed the pounds. Prior to joining Sparks a couple weeks ago, I had lost about 15 pounds, but saw a plateau. I want to lose another 60 pounds and I know the only way to do it is Tito stay accountable. My wife is joining me on this trek, she actually started and now both of us are involved. I am trying the 28-day challenge to earn some extra sparks points....she and I are competing a bit. <BR> <BR> Mon, 3 Mar 2014 17:45:01 EST Take 2! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x42559x56989815 I did this challenge last summer and amazed myself for sticking to it. I lost about ten pounds and then slowly gained it back. I want to go back to something that worked so well for me and hope I can keep the motivation to get to where I need to be. For now, I'm on day one.
