Thanks for the advice and ideas! I am lucky to have membership in a small health club and I have been doing my cardio there and I plan on continuing the 5 days cardio a week--that's a promise to myself. I feel so much better, more energy & less stress when I do the cardio on a regular basis. Plan on finding another challenge to commit to. I never did this "team" stuff before and I like it. It helps to know there are others working hard and making big changes. I will be weighing in tomorrow and mentally am prepping myself not to be too hard on myself or expect too much.Best of luck to all of you this week.

I think I will do the same. I may join the YMCA too for extra motivation during the rainy cold season. Good luck!

I really liked the format of this challenge and knowing that others are doing the same thing. I might go for either the Spring into Shape or 28-day Bootcamp challenge next.

The dare to lose program at our fitness center starts on 1-30 for 8 weeks. We work out with trainers for 1 1/2 hours twice a week and on our own in addition to that plus track our food. I really like the spark tracker for that. Looking forward to the routine.

Now you've plucked up courage to weigh yourself set yourself a realistic goal weight and get it typed in on your start page weight under goals and progress.
I'd use the Spark Workout Generator 3 times a week so you work every muscle group twice and get 3-5 cardio sessions in.
If you need accountability blog your intensions and what you've achieved and get support OR join some teams for team challenges for Spark challenges go to www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/challeng

Looking for some ideas for after this challenge. I NEVER would have pushed myself this hard in three weeks I would've fallen off the wagon for sure!! I feel much stronger and more fit and actually had the mental strength to weigh myself. Now I have a starting point but I have not determined my goal weight. Any advice or a reasonable goal for 5'2" 56 y/o?
