Doing this alone is something you will never have to feel while you are part of SparkPeople. The people here are amazing.

When you get a few minutes, create a Sparkpage. That opens up so much more. I think you will be surprised. :)

That would be great! I have such a hard time motivating myself when I feel like I'm the only one having to do this.

Hi everyone! I am new to this site and figured I need a lifestyle change and what better way to stay motivated than to be doing this with real people in a real community! I live at 19/Schoenherr with a 27 month old boy and a 5 month old boy. I just bought a treadmill to walk on, but seem to lack the motivation. when they go down for a nap I want to sleep as well or get things done around the house. I need to lose about 70 pounds. I say need because at my age, my cholesterol is not good at all. I don't want to do this, but I need to. My cholesterol was at 298 last week. I guess it is supposed to be below 130. I am 22 and do not want to suffer a heart attack/stroke like the rest of the women on my mothers side. My mother had a stroke at 27 and 2 days before my brothers 27th birthday he had a heart attack. If anyone is willing to be my buddy I would appreciate it. I go back in 5 weeks for retesting and see if my doctor will yell at me. feel free to contact me and I look forward to this long journey!

Hi Im around 19 and Clinon River :) Im new to the sight and love it! My whole perception on foods that are good for you has changed and although it's been rough, I've finally figured out how to eat better and enjoy it! Hope all of your goals are going good and can't wait to get more involved witht he sight. It's great to know people around me are making changes too.

Hi, my name is Christie and I actually live in Clinton Township but Sterling Heights is across the street so I figured I would be good to join this group and Clinton Township doesn't have a page. So, I am a new Mother to a beautiful 5 month old. He is my pride and joy. I was really good during my preganacy, I only gained 24 lbs. I thought I would be able to continue to eat healthy but I eat out all of the time and it needs to stop. I need to get heathly to live a better life style and teach my son right from the start what is good to eat and to get out and exercise. The exercise should't be to much of an issue as I love to do it but with a little one it's hard to find time. So Hello to you all I look forward to finding motivation and helping others.

Hello! I am completely new to this and computer illiterate to boot so this should be fun! I am physically drained each day because of the excess weight I have added through the years. I am positive, basically happy and enthusiastic about life. I do, however, have extremely limited willpower especially with sweets and I dislike exercising. I believe I have a thyroid condition but my numbers come back normal. I am busier at 46 than I was at 26 but the doctors say I need cardio at my age. I am waiting for results from a recent health screening but suspect that my cholesterol is high. My mom was obese and had a list of things she was treated for and took lots of daily maintenance medication. She has inspired me to be all that I am, but I don't want to be like her just in that way. I have positive support from my 3 teenage kids who are all physically active, my bf who is overweight himself, and really anyone around me so that's a huge support. I live near 14 & Ryan.

My husband watched me for about a month and a half. He has a few pounds to shed, but his biggest concern is cholesterol. After watching me, he jumped on board. We still have the challenge of the difference in how much more leniency he has with his calories. To me it seems like he is still able to eat whatever he wants. He says he has cut quite a bit. Anyway, give your husband time. If you are just getting started, he'll start to see the difference. emoticon When I did my research on what is the best choice, I was very surprised to find that at McDonald's the chicken nuggets are a better choice than the grilled chicken sandwich. If you order the nuggest and a side salad, break up the nuggets and toss them in the salad.

I work full time so evening are best for me. I live north of 19 and west of Hayes in the condos right there. It is nice but that darn Mcdonalds is to handy when I don't feel like cooking. My husband teases that we should have bought stock because that was the only thing I could keep down during the first five months of pregnacy. I would love to get together and get ideas. I really have never dieted. I have always been somewhat thin, never stick thin. I need to get back to my healthy weight this weight makes me uncomfortable in my skin. What I need to know is how to get a husband on board with healthy food choices when he does not have a issue with weight and loves junk food? He is supportive but hates having his eating habits messed with and I have no time to cook two meals after work

It sounds like most of you have little ones. :) My littlest is 9. I walked at Dodge Park today. I had been told by the Parks and Rec dept that they maintain the walking trails. They aren't very friendly from what I walked on today. It was a great workout though. :)

This coming week is pretty open for me. I have a couple appointments, but definitely have time to go walking. My best days are Wed or Thur morning, but I am not limited to those days. I'm not a coffee drinker but would sip on some water if you wanted to do coffee.

I just signed up after stepping on scale. I live in sterling heights, 19/Hayes. I have a 15 month old son and need motivation. I do well the first couple of weeks then my work schedule and running after my little guy wears me down. You would think that all the exercise the weight would come pouring off. Nope stays the same. emoticon
