I just tell myself that I need to keep the effort going to see results. If I stagnate for to long I "reset" what is in need of change. If it is my eating I got back to the week 1 of my diet, if it is activity I find a new routine that might work better. I know that some days I will not make progress so I don't take it to hard until it has been 3-5 days with no progress.

Question of the week:

How do you keep motivated when your progress seems slow or stuck?

When seeking strength you should go to the first place you look every day, the mirror. If you can't find it there chances are you won't be able to anywhere!

I try to remind myself how far I have come, even if it was slow. And one mistake doesn't set one back all the way.

Question for this week is:
What do you do when you get frustrated with yourself?
I've been going through that a lot so I was wondering if anyone had any neat ideas.

I am usually a very active member, tracking food and exercise here daily. Last few weeks I have been counting WW points through a free app on my phone- I have actually had more success with that losing about 5 pounds in 3 weeks which is HUGE for me!!! I still check in here daily!!!

That's a really good point. We have many members but little participation. It is really sad.
I've not been well so haven't posted in a few days and missed the question of the week altogether.
Question for this week: Are you a active member on spark?

It's hard to get to and figure out what to do. I have been active since 3/16/13 and just figuring things out and all the areas and so forth. SparkPeople is vast and maybe the teams or meaning of the teams gets lost.

I have thought about this question too- and I am also at a loss. More group membership and a few active members might help. I wish sparkpeople.com had notifications like fb. Its harder to follow posts on here. I am moderator of another group on fb. It has about 82 members but there are about 20 really active members. It helps a lot.

Hello all,
Well it seems like everyone has dropped off Spark as no one posts or huddles. I'm a loss for what to do to make this team more active. So here is my question:

If you could change anything about the team what would it be?

So here is this week's question:

Sorry I'm soooo far behind on my spark stuff. I've been super busy and have not had much time to work on the computer.

Question:
If you could have any body shape what would it be and why?

A long time ago, I bought those One Day Diet tablets. I tried for about half a day. They were gross.

Green algae tablets. They are suppose to add energy and weight loss to your body. Worked for awhile but then I stopped.

Week is halfway over, so I think I will go ahead and post a question.

What is the oddest diet tip or fad diet you have tried?

Its weird- sometimes I want to take a break and maintain what I have lost for awhile. Its hard thinking about it ALL THE TIME sometimes.

I really like to read a good book when I'm stressed. I normally take a long walk to clear my head of all the stress. Seems like I've been doing a lot of that lately lol

Good Morning Team,
Another week has passed and I hope it was good for all of you. I'm VERY busy with my son's graduation, prom and cleaning the house for people to come stay. We have a few people coming from out of the state so my house will be like a motel for awhile.

This week's question is a fill in the blanks.
When I'm stressed I like to _____________.

Believe it or not- I don't care for the packets. I prefer plain water. I just don't drink much of anything. I have been adding more water. That is going to be my focus next week though.

I used to bad at drinking all my water. I then started putting flavor packs in it to make it easier for me to drink. Now I drink over my 8 glasses per day.

Drinking water! Funny think is that it should be the easiest. I don't drink much of anything period. I need more fluids.

Hi Team,
Hope everyone had a great weekend and a Happy Easter. I really enjoyed mine but ate too much candy lol.
This weeks question is:
What is your biggest obstacle when losing weight?

Mine is ice cream. I also have trouble with exercising and tracking minutes.

I do a lot of stuff to get ready for summer. In my spring cleaning I wash walls, doors etc., clean closets and a multitude of chores. I only count the minutes that I'm actually working on the walls etc.

We do a weekly Saturday cleaning, I used to track it, but don't anymore. I was thinking about doing a few spring cleaning things, but I wont track them. All that will be extra calorie burn!

Hello Team,
As I start my spring cleaning I came up with this week's question:

Do you still do spring cleaning and do you track it on your fitness minutes?

I've heard many different answers to question what do you all think?


Have a great week!!!!

My routine is totally different in warm weather. I do almost all my exercise outdoors and hate to be stuck indoors. Luckily I live on a BIG piece of land so there is always something that has to be done.

Good Morning team,
I've been really busy lately so haven't had time to spark much. I have a son graduating in May and its a very hectic time here at the house.
This week's question goes along with the warm weather:
Now that the weather is warmer how does your routine change?

Happy St. Patrick's Day Team!!! emoticon

No problem.

My progress has been SLOOOOOW too and I often stress about it, but then I remind myself.

1. My clothes are loser.
2. No matter what the scale says, I am becoming healthier. It is a good thing. Results will come, eventually.

Sorry I forgot to post a question this week but things have been a bit chaotic here at home.
When my progress is slow and I'm feeling down I give myself a pep talk. I remind myself of what I've accomplished and it helps.
My continual motivation is I want to be healthy enough to enjoy my retirement.

What do you do when you feel discouraged or that progress is too slow? How do you continue to motivate yourself?

Ha ha its true. I just have LESS. I have chocolate every day- I count it. Then I have one meal a week that I don't count (but I am super good the day before, that day and the day after)- which is usually Saturday. I can eat the meal I want (but not over do it) and have dessert. I also only have alcohol once a week. My fiance and I used to have a drink together most nights a week.

Wow everyone has such wonderful ideas for exercise. Spring is right around the corner so I must get busy losing weight for shorts weather.
I will be getting my den back next week so I'll be able to start riding my exercise bike again! It has been over a year and I can't wait to get back on it.

Hi all, Loving this dialogue!!
I'm training for a half right now, so I have non negotiable run days on Tue, Thu, Sat Sun with Wednesdays being added soon. When I'm being awesome I go to the gym on non run days and bike or elliptical and I also walk with Sparkfriends on Saturdays when I am in town.
I just got a Wii for my birthday and I did not know there was Wii Zumba. Must check it out!
I did not know the was a Shadowchase walking club now, that's awesome!

Batty, is that the new Planet Fitness. I go with a friend to the one on Orangeburg. It is awesome. I am considering joining.

I did Zumba on the Wii today, it said I burned over 800 calories. I sweat so much. Great work out!!!

I do all sorts of stuff- running, kettle bells, biking, pole dancing... whatever I can find to keep me moving...

The Shadowchase group has a walking club now too that meets up several times during the week and they are awesome people!

I try and change up my exercise daily. I get too bored with doing the same thing so I pick something new to do daily. Since I'm house bound most of my exercise is done here at home. There is a new gym opening down the street for $10.00 a month that I'm checking into. It is within walking distance so its perfect for me.

Fitness is new to me, but here is my plan.

Tues and Thurs, 60 min of Zumba. ALWAYS.

Then I add in walking or going to the gym with a friend here and there the other days (been adding more and more lately).

My fiance bought me Wii Zumba, so I can do Zumba at home too. So excited.

Happy Monday Team!
This weeks question is :
Do you change your exercise routine regularly or do you do the same thing everyday?

I know what you mean Julia. Out of all the members in this team we seem to be the only ones active. I'm up for walks other days than just Saturday. I don't drive so my hubby has to drive me and bring me home. If I had transportation I could meet anywhere for a walk.
I've been kicking around a few ideas like rewarding the top people in fitness and points. It is always nice to be acknowledged.

As coleader, I would like to see more active members. More members willing to meet to walk, days other than Saturday morning at 8 am.

I guess I just would like to feel more TEAM. If you do weight watchers you attend meetings, you get to know other local people with the same struggle. I often feel so alone and discouraged. It was such a struggle to lose 4 pounds.

When seeking strength you should go to the first place you look every day, the mirror. If you can't find it there chances are you won't be able to anywhere!

Good morning team!
Hope all had a great week. I was sick most of the week so didn't get a whole lot done. This week's question is not about weight loss. Being the leader of the team I'm always looking for new things for the team. So that being said:

If you could change anything about this team what would it be? Please be honest as I'm open to all ideas.

I go to Zumba twice a week for 5 bucks. Its an hour, women only, good for all fitness levels and a great work out. Also that new gym, Planet Fitness on Oakdale is 10-20 per month no contract. You might want to check that out. I was thinking about it. The 20 package includes unlimited guests and free tanning.
I walk sometimes.

I would like to get a Zumba dvd or Just Dance for the Wii.

Good Morning Team,
Hope all are having a good week so far. I'm just finishing up with a sinus infection so haven't been as active as I want to be.

Does anyone do all there workouts at home? I'm tossing around joining a gym but really like the privacy of working out at home.

Are you getting married? Congratulations in advance! The holidays beat me down also and I'm having a hard time getting the eating under control. I'm down with a sinus infection so I have no appetite so maybe I'll lose some weight lol

Since 2009, on and off. Never really an active member until recently.

Good morning team!
Another week is upon us so I have a new question for you all:

How long have you been on Spark and are you an active member? emoticon

I know that feeling Julia!!! I've just been gaining weight since Thanksgiving and now I'm the highest weight I've been in years. I'm feeling pretty down about myself too. I've now started to eat small meals during the day and a snack at night. I've lost a couple of pounds but not much. Don't worry we'll both take baby steps and the weight will come off. emoticon

STUCK! STUCK! STUCK!

It is such a bummer. I counted calories all week and went to zumba twice, no change. I am just going to keep at it. Maybe be slow but I am sure I will be rewarded eventually.

I couldn't give up chocolate or ice cream. I've starting eating frozen yogurt instead of ice cream but there is no substitution for chocolate emoticon
