Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be friendly, laugh,give and do charity.....IT is the key to heaven.

Welcome! My number 1 lesson when I started was to be patient with myself. I am trying to change my lifestyle and not just my weight and fitness. Congratulate yourself on small victories, even very small. Watch your "self talk" and try to counter negative or sad thoughts with at least one positive one, even if you think you're faking it at first -- you know the old saying, "Fake it till you make it" -- it has an effect!

I think it's great that you're tackling the fitness aspect of your program. I simply cannot lose weight unless I'm doing regular cardio, and I run a small vegetable farm and get in 10-15,000 steps a day anyhow. It's not the same as a walking program (or, for me, running, but I didn't start OUT doing that!). Active is good, but regular walking is fabulous. And I love those times when I walk (or run). I use it to practice visualization of how I want to look and feel, to consciously try to think of where I want to be in a lot of things in my life. It's energizing, in itself.

Good luck!


“The greatest fine art of the future will be the making of a comfortable living on a small piece of land...” - Abraham Lincoln

"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.
Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them--every day begin the task anew."
- St. Francis de Sales

Just remember that 70% of weight loss happens in the kitchen. Relearn how to eat right and pay attention to what you eat with tracking.

Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and suddenly you will be doing the impossible -- St Francis of Assisi

I'm brand new to Sparks People and am very excited to get involved. I have already receive a lot of support and encouragement from the links. It makes me feel wolcomed but perhaps a bit overwhemed as i am not accustomed to working with computers at all.(l am not allowed to order anything from a computer site because the last time I ended up buying the same exact item three times.) But, hopefully that will get better With time and practice. I am 59 years old. I recently had a 'biventricular pacenaker' put in due to a flabby, inefficient heart. It was 'strong suggested' that I excercise and lose weight to improve stress on my overburdened heart. So here l 'm trying to make some improvemts, I joined a gym and my husband decided that he could benifit from some exercise too. So he is very supportive and attends exercise class es.with me. I am retired after working over 30 yeas as a crital care nurse on the night shift. (That presents it's own set of problems as the hospital cafeteria is closed at night making purchasing healthy meals impossible (thus promoting buying fast food for delivery and frequently snacking while working. Also working unusal hours makes it a bit more difficult to get exercise in...but with creativity and a little effort I got it in.). Now being retired and plaged with severe depression, it is hard to accomplish much more than lying around rhe house all day. I am hopeful thi program can offer some support and direction. It has been great far offering guidence and direction. It's an awsome site I can't believe I just sturpmbled on it. It has so many great features; I spend toń of time just wandering through the site trying to learn about everything that's going on. Looking forward to learning and losing Thank you for your support and encourgagement.

the purpose of life is to give it away.
