Hi...new to the team and want to take this challenge as I'm hoping not just to do my workouts when scheduled, but to do an activity like walking on a daily basis. Hoping to do this before work where I sit all day, but will settle for a walk anytime of day. emoticon

Just joined today. Not big AT ALL on joining teams and checking my computer daily. I find it annoying...but sometimes I find it inspiring! I guess I'm in a rut; I lost momentum sometime back in the fall and gained 6 lbs back. It might not be much in the big picture, but when it's taken me forever to lose 30 some lbs (7 months), 6 lbs is a lot, especially when I wasn't even at my goal weight yet. So I"m not very motivated because I have to track everything I eat, but I know that along with exercise is the ONLY way I can lose weight. Can you tell I'm lost on motivation? :) I'm probably not as bad as I come across...but just the same, I need some push here. UGH. I"m getting ready to go downstairs and do my elliptical for 30 minutes....The only time (after today) I can really get exercise in is 4:30 a.m.! And I SO don't want to get up that early to exercise. But I'm scheduling myself to lose one pound a week so I can drop at least 15 lbs by our son's high school graduation (June 6 and 18 weeks away). Prayer would be much appreciated, along with any motivational words. Thank you.

Hi. Just joined. I need to increase my exercise...from none to some. I figured this would be a great way to start the habit. Everyone has 10 minutes in their day right? I know I sure do. I plan to do more than this, but a minimum of 10 minutes 5 days a week is still almost an hour a week. :)

Starting over: 1/21/15

WISH ME LUCK!!

I am restarting with SparkCoach and it suggested I come here for tips, etc on quick exercise. I am also trying to do another 30 day challenge. I turned 61 last Monday. My present to my self is the Spark Activity Tracker, which I ordered Friday. I have many silly but potentially life threatening illnesses caused by my poor dietary and exercise habits. More later. I must go buy some healthy food,--fruits and veggies.

Hi - I'm Nora and live in Chesapeake VA. I have maintained a loss of 25 pounds since May of 2013. I'm joining this challenge because I'm not as active as I was when I was losing weight - coupled with the winter weather - I need some motivation.

Life is short, I'm going to the beach

Hi everyone, I'm Clint. I'm 51 years old, I've had 3 heart attacks, a stroke, 11 stents and triple bypass surgery... oh... and I've lost 100 pounds. I lost the weight several years ago and slowly over the past 3 years I've put back on 30 pounds. I am determined to pull this 30 off and an additional 30 pounds as well.

Go for it!!

My name is Darlene but like to be called Dar. I live in Tacoma,WA with my youngest daughter and her husband and their youngest daughter. In my one bedroom apt upstairs on the second floor. I lost my husband in 2005 in Shelton where I use to live and now I live in Tacoma.I need to get at least 10 minutes of walking in everyday but with the weather like this it rains here a lot and sometimes I need to walk to the store when it rains so I have to make sure it don't rain real bad cause sometime it does. We do have an exercise room in the office but they are closed on the weekends and holidays. I also have Leslie Sansone's DVD's and tapes that I can use also.
At least I have some things to start out with.
Thank you so much for letting me join this team.

I danced yesterday! Today I walked for 30 minutes. .. I wonder if that means I can have a credit for tomorrow, since I did 20 extra minutes today...just joking! We can do it! Just keep moving! :)

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

Hello everybody !

I'm Ruxandra and I'm from Romania :).

My goal for the next 6 months is to get back in shape (2014 was a disaster from this point of view) and be able to run a 5K. This challenge is perfect for me now, so I'm very happy to participate.

Good luck to all of us !

Hi everyone, newby to Sparkpeople. Everywhere I go on the site it says to introduce.yourself here but I still haven't found here yet. Maybe someone can tell me where here is? I'm here but "here" is allusive. Maybe this IS here? I'm Ann and I started walking 4 miles on mon., weds., and Fri. Takes me 90 minutes to do so. I joined the Y a month ago and haven't gone yet. Want to motivate self to go tomorrow boy, new things are hard aren't they? I'm going on 70 and my goal is to get in the best possible shape I can as I plan to visit my daughter in New Zealand next year and want to be up to rigorous sightseeing there and in Australia since it is so close.

Hi All,

I am starting this challenge right now, which means when I get home I have to do some form of exercise for 10 minutes (I think I will dance).

I need a jumpstart because I haven't exercised for like 2 months. I use to walk all the time (I know its cold but that is not always a good excuse I have just gotten off track and been lazy). I like this challenge. 10 minute minimum. Sometimes that is all you need to start and you can keep on going and sometimes that 10 is enough lol.

Well here I go.

Hi, I'm Kim. I just had my 5th baby 7 weeks ago. I always gain so much while pregnant, and normally lose it although that gets harder as I get older! I have 40 pounds to lose to get to my pre-pregnancy weight. It's so much. :( But I know I can do it.

Hello everyone from Wilmington IL ~ Happy New Year!
Excited to have a new year and a clean slate to start fresh again. This year my hubby is getting on board with becoming healthier.
I am a retail manager and hubby is retired. Two totally different lifestyles now - so we're working on this together.

I have been off and on Sparkpeople for 5 years, I know it works, I lose and maintain when I stay true to it, and gain when I don't. So I am back and need help staying on track with exercise and I am hoping this team challenge will help me.

Hi - New here - just found this team and I think it will help me to get back into exercise. I lack motivation and I do think this 10 minute challenge will help me.
I need to lose about 25 lbs - and follow a better diet than I have been doing for the past few months.
A new year and a new start is for me emoticon

Happy New Year! I have belonged too spark people for a long time but apparently I was not serious about it. I am determine to lose weight and get physically healthier. I am setting one goal at a time. My first goal is to eliminate white flour/rice etc from my diet. This one will be tough but I am determined. I also decided to commit to getting some form of exercise in for 10 minutes a day. These two areas will be my focus over the next several weeks until they become a habit. I then will choose another goal and so on!


Here is to a healthier year for all of us!

Hello! I joined Spark People years ago, but have not been active here in almost as long. So, I am back again. I start this journey again with plans of easing in good habits. 10 minutes a day is something I can commit to, though time is not an issue, it is just a matter of me getting started. Here's to a New Year and best wishes to all on board here! And thus the streak begins... emoticon

Hi, my name is Angela and my goals are to lose the weight I gained during the past 7 years of being chronically ill and to gain back the strength I have lost. I still have my chronic illness but I don't want to be a victim to it anymore. It seems like it has decided to stay with me to the grave so I am not letting myself get there early.

Angela

I love the Lord, King of all Kings who without, I would not be able to get through the day.

Hi I am new to spark people and I am trying to loose these 30 extra lbs of baby weight I put on. This challenge seems like a great way to get started. I have 4 kids and finding time is sometimes very hard so I will start by committing 10 min. to me!

Hi. My name is Dani I'm 40 years old, and I just got engaged on Christmas. We're planning our wedding for October of 2016. I really want to be a healthy bride, and I want to look amazing in my dream wedding gown. I'm hoping this challenge will be the jumpstart that I need. emoticon

Hi I am new to this group- have been off for while and getting very discouraged- can't seem to find time to exercise in my new job but really could use the stress relief that I get from exercise. I thought well- let me get back on SP- and when I signed in I found this group. Just what I need... it sounds do-able and I can commit to this. I am ready to go...

Drop one lb per week... Sharon

Not new to SP or weight loss. I wont bore you all
with the normal weight gain/loss story. I am serious
this time. And will not give up.

I will admit.. exercise is my *Struggle* big time! Now,
I have the time.. believe me.

Hope to meet motivating people and happy to be part
of this. And I know this challenge will get me off my booty!

Hi, my name is Kirsi and this challenge seemed good place for me to start with my fitness. I haven't exercised consistently in a long time so daily 10 minute it's good place to start.

Hi, I'm Johnda. I need to add a new challenge to my workout. I seem to be stuck at my current weight, for awhile. Nothing has changed in what I'm doing. I walk on treadmill everyday, but I seem to be stuck. Maybe this challenge will help. Short term goal is 10lbs by May 1st long term is 20 lbs.

Hello, I'm in gear to complete my long term goal of going from 247 down 147. I read Spark Guy's mini-book and it really help me see how the 10-minute streaks will help me reach my goal.

Thanks Spark Guy!

Hello,

My name is Susan and I just joined this challenge and team in order to get me up and moving. Am working to get back to exercise after dealing with arthritis in my right knee and a fall that injured my left knee in June.

Was working on losing weight for my son's wedding this past October. The weight loss never happened and now I dislike seeing the pictures of me from the wedding.

My 60th bday is in July and I do not want to weigh what I weigh now so this is my first step.

Thank you.

Hi! I'm new to the team. Really trying to get back on track - I started working again last spring after being a stay-at-home mom for years and have had a really hard time balancing work, kids and family, and physical activity. But I need to do something and if I can force myself to make the time to do at least 10 minutes of anything each day, that's so much better than what I'm doing now. So here I am!

Hi I am new to this team. I have been exercising because I just completed my 5k walk. But I want to get into a better routine and I thought joining here and at least getting in10 minutes every day is better then doing it all at one time only 2 or 3 times a week. I live in Florence OR.
Married to a wonderful man, have 3 adult children, 10 grandchildren, 2 step grandchildren, 3 great grandchilden and one step great grand child. My goals are to live a healtly and full life.

Hi I think this is a great idea. I have recently lost 20 pounds and I still have 100 to go. I have not been doing any exercise until this week so I am hoping that this will keep me on track.

Hi, I'm Icewynde.

I've been "streaking" since I first joined the Spark, back in July. First streak got up to 110 days before being interrupted by a trip, now up to day 45 of my second streak.

I think the 10 minute challenge is a brilliant idea of Spark Guy. I don't know how many times I've started thinking "I don't really feel like exercise, but I only have to do 10 minutes" and then once I get into it I do the whole workout. And I am so stubborn, that once I get a good streak going I just can't let it die!

Anyway, now its official!

Every day, in every way, I'm just getting better and better!

Hi! I'm 34 and I've always been over-weight. I had open heart surgery when I was 3 years old to correct a congenital heart defect. While my condition is stable, my cardiologist says my condition would be "perfect" is I weighed under 200 pounds. So I joined sparklepeople to lose weight and the 10-minute challenge to hold myself accountable to lose the weight.

Welcome !

It’s not that we will ever stop learning—it’s just that we have to start using the tools in our everyday lives, as opposed to conducting an ongoing search to fix ourselves.

Day 1 of my challenge. It is not about weight loss but more about feeling better, healthier and happier. Completed reading the mini-book last night and have done my exercises this morning. Being 60+ I have been down this road before. Plus I am a nurse so well aware of what good nutrition is and what can happen if you don't eat right and exercise. With the help of this Spark Team, I am looking forward to reaching my goals. emoticon

Hi. I joined sparkpeople earlier today. This is the first official challenge I signed up for. Looking forward to progressing and meeting new people along the way.
For my first workout my husband and I are doing a 1 mile workout dvd when our daughter goes to bed tonight :).
