I like walking. I walk very slow (I think) due to an ankle issue. But I keep it up. I am going back to work in 2 weeks and will miss my sunrise walks. I love hearing the birds and frogs waking up.
I won't have the same experience in the eveing. Although I'm looking forward to finding out what goes on then. emoticon

Welcome to the team and sparkpeople. I agree, the nutrition tracker is what helped me to really change the way I eat. I'm not one to go to the gym, so I started walking. I actually enjoy the time by myself and since I've been taking my Ipod, it makes the time go by so quick.

I agree with all who recommend the nutrition and fitness trackers. They really do keep me in line. With so many great articles, recipes and exercises, SP has something to fit everyone.

As far as support and motivation - it's here 24/7.

Best of luck as you journey toward a healthier lifestyle.

Welcome to SP & the team, Jean! The nutrition tracker is a great tool to help learning what to eat & what not to eat. Try following their meal plans & alternate to fit your lifestyle. Soon enough, you'll have the hang of it & be able to design meals & snacks all on your own. Of course, fruits & veggies are always good choices!

I agree with Sandy on finding something you really enjoy & building an active lifestyle around that. Just stick around & you'll start seeing results!

hello...I am Sandy and it's great to have you with us. I am the ultimate have fun and get fit advocate. What do you absolutely love that is physically active? I always ask this because for me, it was dance, and it was somewhat hidden away from my forefront. But dig deep and think of what you love and find a way to do something active around it. That way, you're having fun, truly, and getting a workout.
