Than you for our welcome. I do not get much time to be on here and I really want to loose some weight. It is hard for me as my job keeps me on the road alot. I make bad choices for food when I am on the road. I am about to change jobs so I hope that will help with less travel. I will keep in touch as I learn how to post things and find things. So, if you miss me it is because I cannot find were to find you. LOL I hope I learn quick. Have a blessed day.

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

I am new to this stuff and have been a part of SparkPeople but have done nothing with it. I got married two years. I want to loose weight so that I can be healthier for my self and grandkids. My husband does not care about my weight just my health and so do I. I need to really do something. Help please. This is hard and I am tring to make better food choices and get some sort of exicers in.
