to the team and to SparkPeople, Lily! Wow, you are off to an awesome start!! I'm impressed that you're in ONEderland in just one month!!
I think taking 16 units is a full schedule by itself, let alone on top of working full-time, too - but there is ample research that exercise increases learning-power and once you start working out a little bit, you'll find your energy increases. The first couple of times you may feel more tired but after that you'll find yourself feeling better, stronger and working more efficiently - so in other words, exercise tends to make it's own place in our lives if we give it a chance. Isn't that great?
But whether you work it into your life right now or not, it sounds like you are focused on getting healthier and doing well with your plan - good luck on your journey!

So this is the first time i have actually started being active on this page, even though i joined sparkpeople a long time ago so here it goes: - after the 2012 holidays reality hit once again, none of my jeans fit, my shirts and coats were too small, and i was feeling worse about myself by the day, but i made a promise to myself that this would finally be the year that i would reach my old weight, 130lbs, weighing myself Jan. 1st, i was in shock, the scale read 210lbs :( the heaviest i have every been! so i decided then and there that i have to do something about that, i gave up soda and juice completely, it has been a month since ive had soda, sometimes when i crave something sweet to drink i have a cup or half a cup of apple juice, but not more than that, i also gave up all junk food, i have been eating fruits and vegetables and drinking a lot of water, the only thing i cant give up is my daily morning coffee, during the first two weeks of the month i was able to work out, walk with my german shepherd baby in the afternoons and during my lunch break, i work full time mon-fri, but ever since classes began i have not been able to find time or energy to work out, i am taking 16 units this semester, from monday- friday --all evening i have class, i am sitting all day between work and school, i also have class all day sat, and i just cant seem to have time to work out! (i need to figure some exercises i can do at home-i just havent come up with anything yet) it is now Feb. 01 2013, and my current weight is 198lbs :) ...i still feel guilty for not working out like im supposed to, i think that if i was able to do some exercize i would be able to reach my goal weight so much faster! well, i guess thats it...sorry for making this so long- i will check in again in 1 month and log my weight--hopefully it continues to go down =]
