I am not sure I would say they are new tricks but once again bringing some basic healthy fundamentals back into focus and working on them. I think we all know how important it is to eat healthy and exercise but it figuring out how to make it work within our lives. I am finding that I do enjoy some forms of exercise. I am trying different types. I actually just bought a couple bellydancing DVD's to help change up my routine. Will I do these new videos daily - no, but it is something new to spice it up and yet it is still exercise.
On the other side of the coin - learning new tricks helps keep the mind active and engaged no matter what the age of the person.

I never worried about being thin or healthy, just doing what I want. Just before I turned 40 (2 years ago) I decided I need to start paying attention to my health and get rid of some of this excess weight, so here I am.
Welcome to the team!!! We can do this.

I certainly hope so! I am pretty excited about doing something different with sparkpeople and this challenge. I have never honestly (honestly) cared about nutrition or being fit or even healthy. I just wanted to thin. I had some thin moments in life and it was never enough and it never lasted. I would never consider doing anything slow.. I wanted fast results and I did every single stupid thing in the books. BUT NOW things are starting to change for me. I want to be fit more than thin (may have something to do with being 50) I dont care if it takes a year or two I am doing this now for the second half of my life. I bought a fitbit and I have been tracking (longest streak 19 days) and it seems like somehow a switch has been turned on...I have not even gotten on the scales much... weird for me! Guess that is what the spark is all about! Thanks SP for a good start!
