Welcome to the team. The trick to be successful with SP is that you'll need to show up :) Log in once a day, log your food, blog, read, do whatever you want to do, just stay connected. It rubs off after a while :) Good luck on your journey.
When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top. When you see a person on a mountain top, just remember they did not fall there!
Hello! I am a new "poster". I signed up to SparkPeople some years ago, but I didn't do it right, and the only way to be successful is to embrace the experience fully, so here I am! This is probably the scariest thing I've done in many years (putting my insecurities and fears out there for others to read), but there is just so much life I want to live, and I need to be healthy to do that. I love walking and hiking and being outdoors, so hopefully reading of others' experiences and sharing my own, it will motivate me to increase my walking/hiking activity. My hobby is geocaching, and I would like to embark on some hiking related geocaching adventures as soon as I get fit enough to do so. If there are others out there who are struggling with lack of motivation, think of how short life is and how beautiful the world out there is, so get out there and look for something beautiful every day!
