emoticon Hello there and emoticon to Spark People and to our team!

What I love on Spark People is that the support is unlimited! You need motivation, read up on the success stories and/or post a query and someone will be there to help you along. It is always difficult to start something new but Spark People make it so easy for us all to achieve our ultimate goals. Take it step by step: a) study the site, b) incorporate good habits from the beginning, c) start exercising, etc.

As co-leader of this team I recommend that you check out the following link. This will inform you as to what is available to you on Spark People. Very useful ... It will actually help you get set up on SP.

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Well first let me start by saying I'm so happy I found this site. It will take some getting used to but I think I will get through it! So far I have had one set back..when it's my husband's days off I fall off the wagon...very time! Is it bad that I use those 2 days as rest days and allow myself some treats? Keeping in mind though, I don't want to ruin the Orkney I have done the rest of the week!
I hope I will be able to stick to this and get a handle on those weight/ fitness thing. Being accountable to the food tracker already has me wanting to make good choices..who wants to write that they had a peanut buster parfait for supper! ( I didn't do that by the way). I have 3 huge motivators in my life...my husband.... I want to feel good enough about myself so that we can get some romance back. And my 2 kids. One is 3 and the other is 4 months. I want to be aable to show them healthy habits as well as be able to keep up with them.
There you have it. That is me....let's get moving and get healthy together!!!!
