Hello! I want to wish all of us good luck in this healthy weight loss endeavor. My workouts right now include Walk Away the Pounds dvds, walking dirt roads and walking trails, yoga and pilates (yoga one, day pilates the next), and next week plan on adding some weight training exercises using body weight. I have walked 19 miles since Sunday and my goal is to walk every day for a year even if it's only a mile. I hope to reach my goal by Oct, and keep it off by staying active and eating right. I am a grandmother of 4 and want them to take care of their bodies and minds through exercise and diet and hope I end up being a good role model for that!

Walking is good and easier on the joints if you're like me and overweight. I'm not even going to try and run until I've lost at least 50 lbs. The formula for impact is something like mass x acceleration squared. That means the force of impact increases geometrically with weight and exponentially with speed. Think of the difference between your extra weight landing on your joints at higher speed when running instead of walking as opposed to waiting until you've dropped the extra lbs before increasing your speed.

Fitness starts with getting good shoes.

Hi I'm Lisa from Kearns. I joined in July and feel so much stronger and have lost 16 pounds and 2 inches from my waistline, nowhere else though, weird! I do feel better and I'm able to stand up and move around for longer periods of time without my back hurting. I'm going to join Golds Gym soon and would LOVE to workout with someone if I can find someone with a membership there! My long term goal is to lose 140 lbs!! Come visit my page and say hello or email me, I'd love to hear from fellow Utahns enjoying this site.

Smiles!! "The only way out is through"!

Lisa

Hi Utah fitness friends. I've been a member for a while, but haven't used this site.

I was motivated and did well with my workout routines while my place of employment had a three month fitness challenge. Since then, I've been off and on again with my workouts.

I find I feel so much better mentally while I'm consistently working out, so I here I am. I think I need to be accountable to keep my motivation up. I have set up my goals and would like to post on our teams challenge forum to see if it helps keep me motivated.

Anyone else want to join me? I hope we can motivate each other.

I'm back looking to get serious again about fixing my body shape! Spark is one of my main motivating factors because it keeps my daily (not just long-term) goals at the forefront of my mind.

I have coasted for almost a year now but I'm back to daily tracking and plan to get involved a bit more with the community for that extra boost. Go team Utah!

Hey,
I first started SP a few years ago and was doing great! I lost some weight and felt so good about it, but now here I am 3 years later, 10 lbs heavier! I need lots of motivation! I spent 3 years in nursing school, so it's no doubt the weight crept up, with stress and studying, my body and mind have had a hard time! Excited to be here!!!

It's never too late to be what you might have been

Hi Everyone. I've been on SP for a few years now and still love it. I regularly come back to track my food and exercise. I gained some weight over the winter months and have been working hard to get back down to my goal weight.

Hello Everyone - I joined this team a couple of weeks ago and just noticed that I'm supposed to introduce myself. After watching the sparks coach video on exercising for at least 10 min a day, I joined this team to get motivated to exercise and make it a daily habit. So far it seems to be a great motivator and I feel like I can accomplish this one little baby step. I hope to eventually increase my time to 30 minutes a day. I'm up to 20 minutes this week. I'm trying to make it a priority, moving it to the top of my list instead of the bottom.

I just wanted to say a quick hello and introduce myself since I have yet to. I joined Sparkpeople at the suggestion of a friend a month ago didn't do much with it until this week when I really kind of go it into my head I needed a change. My name is Brandy and I'm 29 and am hoping that sparks will be that boost that I need to really get it together and lose the weight I want to. So far I'm loving the seeing the points and the message boards and blogs. All of it seems like a great way to stay motivated and find a good support group to help push me along the path to a healthier me!
