Hi from a fellow Yooper ! I also joined yesterday, and have a goal of losing nearly 100 pounds, so you are not alone... It IS hard to get started, but set small goals and take one day at a time -- I KNOW I can do it, and you can too!

Best wishes --
Sandy

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why arenít more people happy?

Thanks, Amanda-

I hope to find a lot of support and motivation from my Michigan friends. I forgot to add one thing that proves to be a roadblock...I have little to no will power :( Although I'm not really looking forward to it, I am going downstairs to jump on my treadclimber. I have to tell myself that if I can make time to do some of the things that I like, sleeping and eating for instance, I should be able to make time to exercise; I may find that I like it. Good journey to you :)

Welcome to the team! Its great to have you. I understand the procrastination. I'm good at it too! And it actually reminded me that tonight I'm supposed to go for a run/walk for my Rookie 5K training program.

I hope you enjoy it here. If you have any questions or need anything feel free to ask!

Hi everyone-

This is my first full day at SparkPeople and it's not going too bad. I have quite a journey ahead of me as I have over 50 lbs to lose to be at my goal weight. I need to stay motivated and will definitely need help with that. I am a huge proscrastinator. "I'll start exercising tomorrow" is a favorite of mine, but unfortunately, that tomorrow never comes.

I heard about SparkPeople from a friend at work and thought, "what the heck," I've tried every other diet, might as well give this a go." This will be more convenient for me than driving 20 miles to weigh in at a meeting. Good luck to everyone emoticon
