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

Hello everyone! I've come back and I'm under a new name (was "Excira"). Why? Because I've changed back to my old ways and I need your help.

The last 20lbs I lost on SP has found it's way to my hips, thighs and other areas I dare not speak. Heck, I can probably fly to Hawaii with the wings I now have! emoticon

But this time, I have realized that my weight problem is not with just losing the extra pounds. I have a severe relationship issue with food and feelings of guilt. This isn't something that will just go away with the weight... it is something I need support for. It is something I need Sparks for.

So, please connect with me. I'm great at giving support to others but so desperately need your support through this challenge in my life.

Let's connect!
