Hi Patti and emoticon to the team and Spark.

Exercise can be difficult when a person has physical issues but remember, you don't have to be an Olympic athlete when it comes to exercise - just do what you can. If you can walk or do some other movement for 10 min. 3 times during the day, and do that 3-4 times a week, you will be getting exercise emoticon I have chronic back and joint pain that was made worse by falling flat on my back last summer. I thought my exercise days were behind me because hiking in the mountains near my home was how I got my exercise prior to that fall. Then I talked to a Chiropractor and started to think outside the box and found there were other things I could do. My favorite exercise now is done in a swimming pool - I do water exercises and water jogging. I even bought some aqua dumb bells so I can do strength training in the pool. There are many people on this team with physical problems and health issues. When you get back, you might try writing a new topic on the message board and asking if anyone else shares your particular health issue and find out what they are doing for exercise. Also, check out the Spark articles and look under the health conditions tab for some further information.

My best advice for anyone starting out on Spark is to: 1) use your nutrition tracker faithfully, every single day, because it will keep you honest with yourself and accountable for your choices; 2) try to find some kind of exercise/activity that you enjoy doing and can manage physically. If you like what your doing, you'll stick with it; 3) stay active with your Spark Teams because that is where you will get your encouragement, support, and motivation; and, 4) try to enjoy this effort and have a few laughs with it! If we make this fun, instead of work, we will stay with it until we reach our destination!

Have a lovely vacation and looking forward to hearing more from you when you return!

Hi Pat and Welcome. I am also on vacation. Visiting my family in New York. I most tell you that I have been cooking their favorites food. Which is hard for me, so my intake is in small portion. This time around this is not a diet for me but a way of life. We need to learn how to transforming the way we view food. I am learning what i could eat and not eat. Adding more vegetable and fruits to my intake. Explore Healthy lifestyle, Check out food tracker, and go to search, ask question concerning food. You will be surprise how much info is out there for you to use. Start one step at a time, set small goals for yourself, don't give up. You can do this. emoticon emoticon

I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me

Hi,
That's my user name, but then again it always is. My name is Patricia and though I'm American I live in the South-East of England. I love reading, quilting and hand sewing of any description except for mending clothes, that I don't like.

I am married and have been for a long time. We have three grown up children and four grandchildren who are the loves of my life (besides my husband of course).

I need to lose around 30bs which will take me forever as I don't move a lot and I have MS. I think on how many calories I have been given daily I will gain weight never mind lose it. I shall not be starting this for at least 3 weeks as we are going on vacation so maybe I should have waited but figured why not it's a good idea and my friend Marie suggested it.

Well that's all from me for now except to say Hellow.

With Love
