Hi Amber,

Congratulations on taking your health & future into your own hands. I recommend you consider watching the following documentaries, they are available through Netflex, and Red Box: Forks Over Knives & The Engine 2 Diet, Food Matters. Another that is available for free through Hulu is Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. This one is close to the message suggested below to the 80/10/10 diet.

Good Luck!!

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!

You are assuming, like we all have, that it has to do with personal motivation problems when actually it is lack of solid nutrtion. Your body simply isn't getting the correct fuel to perform. FRUIT UP! Eat at least 2 bananas prior to your work out and 2 after and you will see the difference. Don't believe me just try it.

The way we have eaten has effected more than our weight. The commercial phood supply is toxic. Then we cook it and wonder why we feel so lousy! Then we go on diets, take pills and try to exercise ourselves to death on a body that can't function. No wonder we get so upset!

I'd recommend reading 80/10/10 by Dr. Douglas Graham and switching your diet over to include lots of fruit and greens. Fruit smoothies - without added milk or mylks or protein powders! and Green Smoothies will turn your body AND attitude around faster than anything.

You can get that book at amazon.com.

Thank you. That actually made me feel a little less stressed.

emoticon Welcome, Amber! SparkPeople is a good group.

You've got an ambitious program. Don't burn yourself out going to the gym five days a week, though. Three days is fine. If, for instance, you're doing strength training at the gym and working on all your muscle groups, three days per week, with one day of rest in between each workout day, is the maximum recommended. For three other days, do cardio. Something fun or just simple walking. Walking, by the way, is considered one of the best exercises we can do. Then on the seventh day of the week, don't do any exercise at all. Sleep late, laze around, feel good about all the work you did throughout the week. I think an article on the site said two to three days between workout sessions is OK. The first 38 lbs I lost was done without any exercise. I just kept my calories at 1,200 per day.

There are a lot of good articles on the site about exercise.

Again, welcome, and have fun.

Hello all. I am Amber. I am new to Spark and i am really liking this so far. it seems so much more positive then a lot of the programs and seems like i will be able to maintain and stick to the life style instead of gaining it back. The only problem i am having right now is staying motivated. It is really hard to want to work out these days. Yesterday was the first day back to the gym in 2 months. I was going every morning and then i burnt out. i dont want that to happen again. So i made my plan and my goal is to work out on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays to start with and work into more work outs. I hope to get to know you and support you all.
