What you said is what Spark People is all about. Exercise is important, especially when your in the losing weight part of your healthy rehabilitation efforts. Start with walking at least 30 minutes a day. As you begin to lose weight you can branch off into other activities but don't hold off on the exercise because your waiting to join the gym or figure out what exercise you want to do. Read the book and follow the stages, it really does help!

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Welcome to you both! It's always easier to talk than to do-believe me, I know! I have been up and down all my life-as an adult all the way up to 286 and then down to 155 and now back up to about 200 since I got artificial knees and the arthritis has hit my back and hips. I did lose the weight with diet and exercise-about 3 hours a day at that time but I can't do that anymore. My eating was low calorie with 3 meals and 2 snacks a day. We have to find what works for us. Use the trackers, videos, teams/blogs, articles, everything. JOIN a challenge-there is a new one starting January 1. Follow a short video every day plus cardio- emoticon

Hello,

I'm in the same boat as you. I talk a good game but when it's time to make it happen I tend to get off track. Enough with excuses, we have to "Just Do It," no matter what. I've been working on being consistent in everything I do. I sometimes get off track or distracted but I have to just do what needs to be done.

This is our year. We are going to finally lose this weight. Inspite of the temptations we will experience and the fact that we hate exercising we will have to stay of the straight and narrow road of success. Be encourage and take one day at a time. Yes, it's easily said then done but somebody gotta do it. Why not us?.

Good Evening Everyone!
I'm not sure what to say. This feels like blogging and I've never done that before. I've been with Spark People in the past, several years ago, but wasn't able to obtain full access to it at the time. Since that time, I've gained and lost many times over and haven't really gotten anywhere. My goal is to make permanent life changes and learn to eat more healthfully but deliciously too. I don't believe pills, starving, exercising 20 hours a day are the answer. My idea is simple... burn more than you consume. This means, cut back on the calories and beef up activity and the weight loss should come without too much trouble. My problem is that I get lazy and don't keep track or pay attention to what I eat and I need to find an exersize that is fun not tedious. I'm hoping Sparks can help me with this. I feel very determined and I don't want to lose the motivation and determination I have now. I'm hoping Sparks can help with that too. If you have the same ideas as I do, I'd love to hear from you!
