emoticon Being ready to make changes is definitely the first step! Don't try to make too many changes at one time, tho, or you can become overwhelmed and frustrated. I've only been here a week myself, it doesn't take long to get used to the site and the features here, very user friendly... be sure to check out all the good info under the "healthy lifestyle" tab up above, track your foods daily, and come to the message boards for interaction with other members.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x.

emoticon Well, I was never physically active or athletic, so it has been a challenge for me to make working out a part of my life. Walking is my main exercise and it has paid off. The regular exercise and some weight loss has really helped get my blood work to healthy levels. emoticon too!

I'm new to sparkpeople, I'm learning how to use the available online tools and would appreciate any advice. What has helped you and why did it work? My issues with wieght have been a life long struggle. I'm so ready for change. My recent mantra is: If you want something you've never had, do something you've never done. With that in mind, I'm ending my self defeating behavoir and creating a positive vibe for my life.
