Welcome to Sparkpeople. Be sure to take advantage of all the great free online sources available here, such as the nutrition and fitness trackers. Also, the online community is great. We are all here to offer support when you need it, or celebrate your successes with you.

Here are some links that will help you navigate the site and get started!

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Still trying to lose 14 lbs since the birth of my last child in 2005. I am 37, 5'6 and 144 lbs, the biggest I have ever been. I was going through photos of myself last night to put together our Christmas card and I was not happy with what I saw. I am frustrated because I do consider myself a somewhat healthy person, I eat right most of the time, run at least 3 x per week and lift weights but now I think it is time to count calories and work harder. I want to be back at my feel good happy weight of 130. It shouldn't be this hard to lose a few lbs but apparently it is! I am going to need the help of SparkPeople to help me stick with it! emoticon
