Welcome. Hang in there and keep trying. I have to do things a million times before I find what works for me. change is a slow process, but if I hang in there I can see results. I loved this video. I hope it helps! Its about a paralyzed yoga instructor. Don't give up. You're worth it! emoticon

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!

Hello Everyone, I am starting my 2nd go around at this. I am now close to 100 pds over weight. I am a stress eater which is one of my problems. I also am paralyzed from waist down so my exercise is limited. I know this time with God's help and the support of you all I will get my goal accomplished. I look forward to talking with you all. God bless you!
