emoticon PINNKIE and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi Shelby, welcome to SP and welcome to our Team. This is a great place to come to for support.

Where it comes to the changes you want to make to your weight, I note that you put on a lot of weight, BUT I hope that you aren't necessarily wanting to get back to what you USED to be. The reason I say this is because you are only 19, and it may be that at that lower weight you may be underweight.

Just start this journey off with baby steps, changing only one or two things to start with and allowing your mind/body to get used to the change before adding something else to the mix. In time you will notice that your clothes start to fit you better and you have more energy. THAT is success - don't be too focused on the scales because they are only a portion of it!

If you have any questions just ask - there is usually someone around so a response shouldn't be too far away.

Take care,
Kris

Hi and welcome to the team Shelby. Physical activity has been shown to help alleviate some of the symptoms of depression. If you have been inactive, start out slow with 10 minutes a day and gradually add to it as your body adapts. You can track your fitness activity and minutes on the fitness tracker. Physical activity does not have to be boring; it can be dancing to your favorite music, taking a walk, skating, playing kickball, shadow boxing, working out to a Wii fit, etc. The point is just to get your body moving. You will be amazed at how it will lift your spirits and give you a feeling of accomplishment. The people on this team will be here for you with advice, encouragement, support, and friendship. emoticon emoticon
