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.

Welcome I checked out your SparkPage and really like your attitude!!

Most of us find making small changes far more sucessful than trying to do a makeover in one week! Stick around, join conversations and participate in some challenges.

emoticon to our team and I recommend you start with one small goal for the week and work at it each day. Then if you are successful add one more new small goal like eating one more fruit or veggie each day. Small and steady steps will get you on the path to consistency. There are lots of support, articles, and good tips to help you find the answers you have been seeking to make your lifestyle healthy and not some fad diet.

You can do it one small step at a time- BELIEVE. emoticon

Welcome, honey! Believe me, losing weight (and don't forget the inches!) is better if done slowly...tends to stay off better! And it will stay off better using the tools here and always doing what the advice tells you...baby steps, more water and sleep, tracking...and figuring your treats in so you don't feel deprived. Somewhere here I read of the 80/20 rule: 80% of our intake should be nutritious...20% of our allotment can be whatever we love...

Great good luck and love on your path to fitness and health (PS I have arthritis, too. Believe me..when you start to MOVE, you'll find it gets better ;-)

Welcome to the team. As you gain your "SparkFeet" you will find your niche on how you are to lose weight. There are many articles and support groups for various ailments. There are adjustments that can be made to compensate.
Good luck with your goals and your journey to changing lifestyles.

I just finished what seems like the hardest week of my life. I'm headed into the 2nd week of my lifestyle change. GRANDCRACKER brought this team to my attention. I'm having trouble making small changes, but I have been making them. Due to arthritis and depression, I'm not going to be able to lose weight as fast as others, so I'm glad that this team exists.
