I have been lazy on the site the last few months, just due to lack of time, but I'm trying to get back into it. I'm still following my plan, but I'm not logging everything like I used to. Then again, I've been at this a while, and have been through all of the stages. I recommend beginners take their time learning all the site has to offer. Use the sparkpoints for motivation. By earning them you'll know you're taking advantage of the various resources. The wonderful thing about SP is that there is such a wealth of knowledge and advice to be found here, no matter what plan you follow. And nothing beats the support of other members!

with the exception of this past "blow it weekend" I faithfully track my nutrition and exercise (fitness). As nursegibson said - it is a real eye opener.

you can find the bottom of any team page that you are on that have them and it pulls up a page with ALL your other goals on. It will be 2 weeks tomorrow since I joined and I am still trying to get the hang of it and navagate around the site. SO much good info. I could spend all day here - but I am sure my employer might frown upon that just a bit.

most important is have fun - the support, ideas & suggestions from the site as well as team members is great emoticon

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

You shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now!

I'm not doing as great as I want to be, but I keep trying!! Thank you :)

Here is a link to it.. you can use their goals and/or make up any goals you want! Like I have on mine things like - keep a log of how you are doing (i keep a weigh in log on my computer with my mood for the day and how i feel about my weight), and making sure i eat breakfast, packing a lunch instead of going out.. etc..

Yes good advice Kayla!

My best advice would be to track your nutrition. You will be amazed at what you are eating or not eating - serving sizes, how low protein makes you hungry all day - that stuff. Then take your time and learn how you operate. Don't be hard on yourself - when you screw up - look at it as an opportunity to learn.

Fitness is a good thing to also start at the beginning - start small, unless you are already well established with exercise.

Drink your water, read some articles and join a couple groups like this one to keep you on track. Once you get a routine in will be easier and eventually you can cut the nutrition tracking because you will know it by heart.

Everyone is different and will focus on things that they need the most. I don't weigh daily - once a week.

Have fun with it!

(When I remember) I log my weight on SP's tracker plus I post it here. I usually try to log my food for the day in the morning but always end up forgetting to fill in dinner and after.. so it's never complete (I need to get better at that)! I use the goals section because it feels good when I can check all the little boxes of things I've completed.. and of course I try to come here as much as possible and get some positive energy and motivation! :)

So far I've just been answering messages on my spark page and visiting here at the Binghamton board. emoticon I don't know what the heck I'm doing yet with logging my stats & I wanted to ask you guys a couple of questions:

When you come to the board, do you log your weight each day? Do you log your measurements? Do you log what you ate? Can you just give me an idea of what you log each day?
