Hello and welcoe to the team you can do this just take this road one day at a time. and know that we are here with you for the long hall. Don't get frustrated just try to find the positive things in your life and keep focusing on them. That should keep you headed in the right direction. :) You can do this and if you fall down 10 times get up 11 we are here to help you get up too.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Welcome Suzy! When I think about all the weight I need to lose and all the lifestyle changes that I need to make to get there, I tend to get very overwhelmed and discouraged. So what I do instead is just focus on today: Today's Jazzercise class, Today's meal plan, Today's challenges to being healthy and what I need to do to overcome them.
I realize that you do have to make future plans: If I'm going to the grocery store I plan out different healthy snacks/meals for the immediate future or if I have an event coming up I make sure I have something nice to wear that fits right.
I've found that when I do that it makes it easier to string together healthy days without even realizing it.
So I'll just with you Good Luck and keep up the good work!

hi everyone! i love being part of SP (i recently joined-only yesterday) and spent my whole day on here (it's my day off of exercise as i started a healthy meal plan and exercise schedule a week a go! i've struggled all of my life with my weight. i've managed to lose up to 40 kgs on my own once (less than 2 year ago and now shot up to 111.1 kgs so u can imagine my frustration and there's no one to blame but myself! i'm 35 and come from a family with a history of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes to name a few.. i woke up the other morning and knew i had to do something. i committed myself and started planning out my "old" healthy menus and got my dvd workouts out and made a workout schedule... today's my 7th day on my new healthy lifestyle and tomorrow is my first weekly weigh-in and i'm really hoping to c a smaller number i just wanna know what keeps u all motivated when u know u've got such a long journey ahead?
