Starting the 10 min. Daily Exercise Streak challenge today. I have really been slacking as far as eating healthy and exercising goes. Hoping to kick start my routine with this challenge.

CHURNDASH, welcome to the team.

10 minutes could make the difference to getting a healthy life going, it did for me and good few others.

One of my quote is " make it fun so as not to give up" this way you will stick with it. Make sure you start with small steps and build on them

I'm new to this team but have been losing weight for about a year now. So far I'm down 93 lbs, but have been struggling with the same 8 or 10 pounds for several months so it's time to change something. I hope adding 10 minutes of exercise will help get the scale moving again and will help me have more strength and stamina.

If not now, when?

Hi all, I'm new here and wanted to say hi. I'm starting slow with my goals because going over makes me feel better than going under. I'm 40 with about 50 pounds to lose, but I don't want to weigh myself and become discourage so I am focusing on eating right and exercising only. Once I feel a difference in my clothes I'll weigh in. Best of luck to everyone!

Keep moving forward!

Hi everyone. I just found this challenge and thought I would give it a try. I have been trying to do more working out but with having back surgery it makes it a little difficult. I am hoping that I can do a good job with this challenge as I know it will help me out a lot.

Hi, I'm really happy to start this challenge, because I wanted to do a 30 minutes exercise rutine daily, but yesterday I exercised with this awesome video: 12-Minute Low Impact Cardio Workout from Andrea Metcalf's "Keeping Fit: Cardio" and I felt like it would be difficult for me to start with more than that, so I have to start small to achive what I want.

Hi, I'm Jennifer! I'm hoping to start a habit of 10 minutes at least five times a week and increasing from there.

You are either part of the solution or you are part of the problem.

Hi, Marcia here. I'm 63 years old. I started my Sparks journey in April of 2014 at 303 pounds. Bad for a 5 foot woman. My back and knees are messed up because of my weight. I have had ups and downs but stuck with Sparks and thus far 63 pounds off. I live with my 84 year old Mom, been married twice and divorced twice. I have a daughter from each marriage and from them 3 grandchildren and now 1 great granddaughter. I love to read and do crafts. I am a Christian. That is who I am.

Hi! I started my journey a month ago. I've lost 15 lbs so far and I'm a little stuck at the moment. I need to lose about 60 more lbs. I go to the gym most days, still need to work most on portion control.

Be good to your body, it's the only place you have to live.

Just found this "challenge." I actually joined a gym, got a personal trainer for 3 sessions and now am hoping to keep doing both strength and cardio without the twice a week training sessions. My trainer got me doing a lot of things I can actually do at home-and I love the treadmill at the gym!

My real challenge for the next month will be to do things on my own. I was planning on 10 minutes twice a day of strength and then walking or stationary bike for the cardio. I am hoping the challenge will further motivate me to keep going.

I'm Kristen. I turn 30 in August. February 9, 2015 I quit smoking cigarettes for good. I gained 20+ lbs. in a very short period of time and didn't care for myweight before I quit smoking. I joined Spark People on May 11,2015 and have lost 13.5 lbs since then. Slowly and steadily I have came into my healthy new lifestyle. My goal is to lose 20 lbs. by my 30th birthday and 35-45 lbs. overall with no set goal date.

Hi everybody, I started 3 weeks ago and lost 3 pounds so far, and am very happy about that. It's been very hard to get back in the saddle and stick to a meal plan, but Sparkpeople has been a great help. Not just saying that; I belonged to another website that just never really helped me or worked, but this one does, so I am very happy to be here. I love all the articles and helpful information I've found here. The trackers are all user-friendly and accessible and that is very helpful, too.

I enjoy outdoor exercise and like to walk and ride a bike; in fact, riding is my means of transportation. I like to walk in the evenings to unwind and enjoy being outdoors.

Glad to be here, thanks!!

Hi I "joined" spark people in 2006. However I did not start using the tools until 2013 where for the first time in life I was able to loose weight. I actually joined the team in 2013 however I feel I need even more accountability now after the weight loss (maintenance) than when I was loosing. (in part because of life changes) I have been more active on the site now and am grateful for the team...best to all...Cheers!

I am tall so the goal weight may be ambitious...I never was a yo-yo dieter so this is my first real weight loss and am not sure of my #... at the end of the day my true goal..."To thine own self be true" William Shakespeare (from Hamlet)

Be well!

Just joined. . . for accountability and to have something reasonable to add to my days - 10 minutes should be reasonable . . . even if it's a 10 minute dance party with my daughter (Which is also super fun). I will be starting after work this evening. I've also been down this road many times, but this is the heaviest - and worse, most unhealthy I've ever been. I need this!

Just joined the challenge. Just the word challenge spooks me but 10 minutes makes it seem doable. I don't get up and move as much as i should and this seems like a good place to start.

This time it is for me!!

Hi hi :)

For the past month I've been counting on my more active job to help me with fitness, but I realize I really need to make daily exercise a habit. So this looks like the perfect place to start! I have over 100 pounds to lose but I'm ready and willing to take this slowly and work at it. 10 minutes a day is the perfect place to start!

Good luck to everybody else and I'm glad to be here as part of this group!

I just joined this group today. I have used Spark People in the past but had forgotten all about it. I was at a weight loss stand-still and saw Spark People when I was searching for something online. I signed back up and have lost 6 pounds in the last couple weeks. Just seeing how many calories I was REALLY eating by tracking made all the difference.

...and when they lifted up their voice...and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endures for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.

Hi I'm Michelle. I have been on SP for almost 100 days. I have gotten a good handle on the healthy eating portion but am still struggling to exercise daily. I joined the group to try and motivate me - 10 minutes a day seems like a very doable goal. Even I with my busy schedule can fit in 10 minutes... :)

I'm a little confused as to how to work this page! I'm a newbie and am just now learning the ins and outs of the site. I want to be involved as I live in Northern Thailand and the guys on Sparkpeople will be my supporters! Day five for me. Still feeling a bit unsure, but knowing things will gradually change. Right? The challenge for me is to do at least 10 minutes of exercise per day.

This challenge looks like fun! I have been wanting to increase my fitness minutes and being held accountable will help me do that! My plan is to add 10 minutes to what ever workout I have planned for the day! Yesterday I went on a hike through our woods and made certain I added those 10 minutes before I returned home...even though the black flies were out and hungry!

I'm a 73 yr. old retiree. I ordered the Activity Tracker to follow my exploits in NJ. Losing 20 pounds is my goal. I've begun the 10+ challenge and walked the past 5 days. Although yesterday was a romp in the park with my 3 yr old granddaughter. Tougher than a 1 mile walk.
More fun, too.

Hi, I'm new here. I am currently working and in school, and I have a hard time getting motivated to exercise. I thought the 10 minute a day challenge sounded doable even for me. I had never heard of SparkPeople, and only found it by accident, and I am glad I did! I've never posted in a forum before, so I hope I do this right. Feel free to add me as a friend and good luck to everyone!! emoticon

My name is Barb - have been a member of SparkPeople for a few years, but have never really taken it serious. Am still at the same weight as when i started - in the 200 neighborhood. Not sure now - my bathroom scales is not working.

My daughter has started losing weight and is looking fantastic !! And she is so much happier. So I am feeling really challenged. I have joined other challenges in the past, but soon drop out - just have not had the motivation to continue. I do not have very much support around me - but know that I can certainly find it here on SparkPeople - if i will just take advantage of all the opportunities here!!

So I am in - decided that keeping a journal may help most. Will see how it goes.

Hi I'm Patty. I'm new to this team and I need support to try and get back the motivation to exercise again. I gained back almost all the weight I lost. In February I started to journal what I ate and eliminated all junk food. I've lost 10 pounds but still haven't started to exercise and keep making excuses not to. I want to stop making excuses and start with 10 minutes of exercise.

Hi all. I'm new here, though I've been using sparkpeople off and on for several years now. My motivation to lose weight is that my health is now compromised by all of the unwise choices I've made over the last 16 years and I am finally scared. I need to start somewhere and I probably need to start small and build momentum from there. Ten mintue daily exercises seem like a great place to start.

Hi I am new to this team been sparking since 2008 but have been up and down. The last year I have maintained the same weight but that is not good enough I still have 70 lbs. to lose. My mindset has been stuck on at least I'm not gaining need to get that thought out of my head and move on to I have to lose at least 1 lb. a week. I would like to lose 25 lbs. by the end of the year. Hopefully this team will help me to get 10 minutes in on the days I don't walk the dogs or get to the pool. Those days are hard for me to do exercise I just don't think about doing anything else. I love a challenge and they keep me motivated so this team will be good for me.

I live in Cambridge Ontario Canada it is about 1 hour from downtown Toronto. Teri

STAY POSITIVE AND SMILE. DON'T BE DISCOURAGED WHEN YOU HAVE A BAD DAY. THEY CAN ONLY GET BETTER.

Hey, y'all! I'm Gerrtie.

I joined the team April 5. I reached my goal weight in Dec. 2009. I have managed to keep almost all of it off. But since I went back to work 15 lbs have crept back on, and I have slacked off of my exercise quite a bit. I am hoping to get back on track with both the food and the exercise. No more saying "I don't have time."

Hello everyone. My name is Megan I'm from southwestern Pennsylvania. I have a wonderful husband and 2 beautiful kids that are my world. I am starting my weight loss journey once again. I can't tell you how many times I've started this journey. I keep losing my way and getting farther than when i started. I am currently at the biggest I have ever been, but I'm feeling confident because I've had some medical problems that make this harder that I've been getting situated, such as my thyroid. This is going to be the successful journey, and I'm never coming back!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Karen, I love Spark People, right now I am in between BLC rounds and I thought this would be a nice challenge until next BLC round begins.

May I suggest to anyone who reads this if you are interested in a fun team challenge check out the BLC (Biggest Loser Challenge) It really helps me stay motivated and keeps me focused. It is a 12 week challenge and there is a lot of friendly competition between teams.
