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!

I just want to say hi to all of you! This site was recommended to me by my friend (though i'm not sure if she's still on here) and i must say that this is one awesome site. I really hope that I can reach my goals with the help of this site ( though of course i know that it would still be largely up to me) but i am also looking forward to be motivated by all of you:) I know that each of us has their own story and our ultimate goal is be to be happy and to be the best person that we can be^^ Now, may i know if anyone is free or would be willing to be my accountability partner? Thanks in advance!
