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!

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

emoticon To the team! If you are low carb-ish, check out some info on the Paleo diet. Google it and see if it fits. I am on 2 related teams.

I'm excited to have found this site! I am wheat allergic and found out in Dec 2005. There wasn't alot of prepared GF foods available back then and there wasn't alot on the internet at that time. Glad that isn't the case anymore!

I weighed 225 back then. I have lost and yo-yo'd several times since then. I've been "low-carbing" since Feb of this year and now weigh 175. I don't really fit in at the LC groups because I do eat starches and things like Agave Syrup.

I also signed up to drink 8 glasses of water a day and the fitness tracker.

My goal is to weigh 150 or LESS!!!
