Yes, an old dog can learn new tricks. Just start off slow making some changes and keeping adding. Eventually it will become a way of life and not a trick at all.

If you do what you always do, you will get what you always get. To get something different you have to do what you never did.

This old dog is learning new tricks. Being thin would be very nice but this journey is for my health and fitness.

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!
