Okay Linda,

The third time is a charm! We've crossed paths with three different teams. The both of us are going to have to knuckle down and get things done!!!

Be blessed,

Welcome Linda....it sounds like you have a plan, you just have to "WORK IT". When I started on SPARKPEOPLE, I didn't know how to start this new LIFESTYLE" (not new diet). The article on SPARK said make 3 small changes ,this will make a difference so
I tracked every thing I put in my mouth,
I exercised for 15 mins. 6 days a week
I drank 8 glasses of water every day.

These changes helped me lose 30lbs. I need to lose more but this was a good start.

Watch me closely, Lord. I'm hungry, and I'm weak.

Welcome, I have to admit the only other thing I have tried was Weight Watchers but I always resented paying for missed meetings and that would happen. I have always known that the only way to lose weight is to cut back on calories and that exercise helps because it burns calories. Like mom said 'what goes in must come out somewhere'. I walk as much as I can and I have a skipping rope I use regularly. I also do chair exercises by DVD. I have been an emotional eater all my life and expect to always have to be aware. That being said the articles on Spark and the incredible support while reading such amazing blogs has become my lifeline. I am a short person and at the beginning I was 50 lbs. overweight but now just need to lose 20 more lbs. It will happen and I am so enjoying my life along the way.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

emoticon I feel your pain, I have been on every weight lost diet, pill or potion, Sparks has worked. I don't think Diet, it's a lifestyle change. I am 58 pounds less than I was a year ago. emoticon

Hi everyone! Here I am again, preparing to try another weight loss program. I feel like I've tried just about every program and system out there (probably not in reality but it sure feels that way) and failed every one of them. I know the mechanics of losing weight, I have trouble sticking with the lifestyle changes required to reach my goals. I guess if I'm to be totally honest here, I get bored with the process and just get lazy and quit trying.

I am 53 years old, married, currently unemployed, and raising my nearly 8-year-old grandson. I have requested, and received, a NutriBullet for Christmas this year. My intention is to make myself my project for 2014. Since I am unemployed I can't use 'lack of time' as an excuse to skip the exercise. I own a stationary bike, a Tread-Climber, and a good treadmill, as well as a small library of exercise DVD 's, so weather can not be used as an excuse.

You can probably tell I'm trying to psych myself up here. I plan to officially start after th e holidays but want to start making small changes now. Has anyone out there used the NutriBullet system? What do you think, does it work?

Like I've mentioned, I know that diet and exercise are the keys to success in the long-run. My goal is to find the key to staying on track for the long haul. Wish me luck!

Linda M
