Raggdoll,
It took me awhile to figure this out. Go to your Spark Page and click on edit. Find your Profile Image, near the bottom of the page on the right, click on it and then click on "also choose from our success gallery". Click on the image you want and there you are.
Hope this helps.
Cindy

great to have you on board. my advise is to start with some fast breaks and add or subtract one thing at a time at first. that way you make it a habit before adding another. also it will not overwhelm you as dieting will. i would always start gunho and then wear out after a week or so. this simple plan has really worked for me, emoticon

The one thing that works or me is work on 5#. I found that keeping that as my goal and posting my food helped me to lose 25#, one at a time. Reward yourself with a new mag or a movie or...Mostly, keep an eye on the nutrients listed in your food and nutrition section. It keeps the mind off of what you are giving up and focuses on what is the best for your body! You will find what works for you. emoticon

there is no real deadline, only the artificial one you have set up
It is important to have goals but if your goals are only long term, you may be discouraged in mid-stream.
Have daily goals too, it is important to assess your daily routine, food exercise etc
that way even if the scale doesn't move quickly -- you can balance that with knowing that you did what could be done in a 24 hour period and that you are on a Journey towards health.
Your reward will be in knowing that you did the best you could (or with honesty and the best willingness recognize that maybe there are areas open to improvement when more willingness comes!)

GulfT: where do you get the LOST # with SP logo? I keep asking, but no one seems to know!

Don't eat anything served out of a window unless you're a seagull.

If you don't learn from your mistakes, what's the point in making them?

Welcome! Just a few suggestions to add to the good suggestions from the group. Keep well-hydrated, and move everyday. If you can't do a full workout as intended, do 10 min or even a few min. during a commercial break (pushups, situps, leg lifts, running up & down the stairs....all these things add up). If you have a day of slip-ups whether it be skipping a workout or eating too much, don't look back. Start w/the very next minute & move foward then do something positive to move you foward even if it's simply taking a few min to log onto Sparkpeople & plan your next workout, meal etc. Best of luck to you & we're sure you'll get there! :)

look for progress not perfection
focus on the everyday exercise and your meal plan for one day ; don't look down the road at the 40 pounds
don't make a big deal about imperfection -- everyone has it -- it's part of the human condition
enlist help when in trouble but also as a support network for every day
you may find that asking for help you are helping someone else too
good luck and stay encouraged by looking at all the healthy articles on SP!

Welcome! Here's one little piece of advise I can give you. Stick to your weight loss plan, but be ready to be flexible. Life has a way of throwing curve balls.
Don't beat yourself up. Start over.

Hi. My name is Viveca and I am determined to lose 40 lbs before my 40th birthday in April 2010. I am very excited about the venture but will need some motivation, suggestions, and guidance along the way. Any help or advise will be greatly appreciated. I hope each of you are meeting your goals and making progress.
