Hi Barcle,

Thanks for your very very warm welcome to the team. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Its the sound of the underground, & we gotta fight for this love, before we breakaway, cos silence is golden, & its only words, & love will keep us together, on a night like this, wow, hey baby, my baby love, save your kisses for me, or its goodbye cruel world, forever & ever, goodbye my love.

Hi and welcome to the team emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Hi GREASE31! Welcome to the Team. The biggest mistake that some people do, including myself in the beginning, is not eat much. That is worst thing anyone can do. When you eat less your body goes into starvation mode. So anything you eat will convert to fat. You need to keep your calorie count between 1200 - 1500 calories. Anything under 1100, you are not going to lose much weight if any. You should eat 5 small meals per day, breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2 snack.

If you just starting out in exercise, take it slow. Start off with 5 or 10 minutes each day. After a few weeks, add an additional 5 or 10 minutes to your exercise routine. Eventually, the more exercise you do, the more energy you will have to do things.

Just remember it took a long time to put the weight on and it will take while to lose. It is best to lose the weight slowly.

I wish you luck on your weight loss journey and just remember, we are all here to help you with support and motivation. We are all here for the same reason....to lose weight and get healthy. Also check out the healthy Spark recipes. emoticon

Welcome. Starting small is a great way to make this work. One of the things we often do to ourselves is jump in and take on huge changes. A couple of weeks and we find that we hurt and are injured, the food isn't working for us, and we quit.

Making small changes allows us to build in success and make changes that work in our lives.

I had a lot of weight to lose and after I had lost a few pounds, I felt strong enough to start walking. I found a flat trail a couple of miles from my home. I drove there and walked 15 minutes the first day. I got home and collapsed for 20 minutes when I was done, but I did it. A couple of days later, I did the same thing. It was the same for me. I kept going and added 5-10 minutes a week until I was walking much longer. I walked to the end of the trail and back which was 2 miles. I was so proud of myself.

I finally felt strong enough to walk around my neighborhood. Started with the 2 miles and worked from there. By the end of the year, I was walking 5 miles without batting an eyelash. The dog loved it, I was looking and feeling much better.

You can do this also. Remember to listen to your body and don't hurt yourself by starting too strongly.
