emoticon from Orange County - I'm glad you've joined us! And don't worry, ALL of us have been in the same situation so we will definitely understand how you feel. I think the best way to turn things around is to pick one or two small goals to work on for awhile rather than trying to 'change everything' all at once - for instance, drink 8 glasses of water every day and go for a 30 minute walk [or even a 10 minute walk!!]. When that becomes 'habit,' you can pick another couple of goals to work on. This way it's less stressful, more likely to become PERMANENT and healthy over the long run - trying to do 'everything' and get quick results is stressful and makes us want to give up because it's so hard. Anyway, give it some thought, join a challenge or two and work on consistency for the best results!

emoticonto SparkPeople... so glad that you've decided to make changes to your life at 26 while you are young and strong. I'm sure you are active already with two little ones so keep moving and start tracking your food on the nutrition tracker... drink lots of water and you'll start to feel better which will motivate you to Spark Onemoticon

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

How about using those two little kiddos as motivation. You'll want to run, get down on the floor, keep up with them.....You'll want to be around for their lives!!!!!!! What do u think????
