Hi Jessica, Welcome. Best advice I can give you is to use the resources available here to you on sparkpeople as much as you can. Track your food, post to give and get support and stay active and pick an activity you enjoy--don't think of it as exercise, but as playtime. Walking is a great one if you enjoy it-most of us here do enjoy walking best but we also do other things as well. Don't be too hard on yourself and if you slip up, don't worry aboutg it, just get back up and keep at it!
"It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop" (Confucius)
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
(Henry David Thoreau )
Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. (Albert Einstein)
Hello all! My name is Jessica and I am new to the group and to sparkpeople.com. Im twenty-five and have been in Orlando for over a decade. Im so excited to be here and starting to get involved. Ive been overweight for a long time and have decided that it's high time to do something about it. I welcome any advice, encouragement, and walking buddies!
Sometimes I wonder why we don't all move on! 'Cause we all end up in a tiny pine box. A mighty small drop in a mighty dark plot. And the mighty fine print hastens the trip to our epilogue.
