emoticon Just like something new, its hard to get motivated. Once you start you will go full speed ahead. Post, track your nutrition, exercise and before you know it your off.

Hi! Welcome to the team! One thing you can try to get moving is the 10 minute SP videos or just commit to walking for 10 minutes. I started with the Walk Away the Pounds DVDs. You can get a good workout & walk 1 mile in just 15 minutes. The better you feel, the more motivated you will be to do more. Baby steps at will get you there.

Hi and welcome to the team. It may take you awhile to really get into it, but once you do...it feels so wondeful. I started with tracking everything i ate, then i started walking just around the block and then increased it.You can do it!!

Actions speak louder than words.

Don't worry if you falter now and then, just be sure to try again. A little bit of healthy guilt can work wonders.

Smile and make somene's day.

Hello! I know when I workout I feel great afterward. I use that feeling to motivate me, because I'm in pain so much that when I have a chance to feel good I enjoy it. And Again emoticon

Welcome to the team. One small step of the couch is one better to step to losing weight and getting Fit and my boyfriend bought me a exercise bike which I have in my living room. It there to remind me to get off the couch and work on my cardio. I now ride the bike least 3xs a week for 35 to 45 minutes as well as doing the walking. Keep going, call us if you need help, we have all been there. This a great group of people to help. emoticon emoticon

Welcome to our wonderful team. You've taken step one by joining SP. Now, the second step, is to start taking baby steps. Get up off the couch and walk for 5 minutes. Search the website and get some ideas of what you might like for food choices. Start tracking your food and exercise - even if you go over your calories you are starting a healthy habit and soon you'll be making wise choices. Good luck and I hope to see you lots along your journey!

All journeys start with one step and you've made that by coming here. For me taking short walks at first has worked. I am now walking 2-6 miles a day and incorporating other exercises.

One thing that I highly recommend is keeping up with the nutrition and fitness trackers - they are the greatest at keeping you on track.

Best of luck to you, and remember that whenever you need support or motivation you will always find it here.

Hi Everyone,

I signed up about two weeks ago and can't seem to get motivated to get off the couch. It seems so hard because I know I have a long road ahead and I guess I'm afraid to start and fail.....
