Probably the only reason I didn't make the same mistake was that when I joined SP my biggest exercise was shoving off the couch to go get more nachos! Anything beyond trying to get in a short walk every day was beyond my imagining, so I had very low exercise ambitions!

Thanks for posting this Jolene. I made this a sticky topic because it is an important one. I doubt that you are alone in misunderstanding this.

I am looking at a spark email with the title of:
"Take the 'Strong Start' Quiz: Answers from the new survey can help you lose weigh."

Any body signed up to receive email should receive this & read it. We are not to copy & past an entire article.
The first sentence is most telling:
"In a previous SparkPeople poll, we found that 50 percent of "dieters" reported losing their momentum within two weeks of starting a diet!"

Hi again everyone....I have had a "set-back" but nothing that will keep me from going forward. Here I had been complaining about having to eat too much food the last couple of weeks. Well, here is my DUH moment. My husband and I were so confused on why I had not lost anything my first week and why I should be having to eat soooo much when all of a sudden I got an idea to look at what I had signed up for under the exercising page. I had myself signed up for several things not realizing it had ANYthing to do with the menus. After taking off all of the strength and cardio I then looked at my menu goals and saw that it was reduced from a minimum of over 1600 calories a day to just over 1300. Talk about being on a learning curve. I had signed up for things I was hoping to build up to, not that I was able to do on a daily basis. Anybody else want to let me know if they had this "brain-fart" also???
