I will do whatever I can to encourage and support you. You are not alone! We are all in this together, even though our individual circumstances differ. We are all learning together and struggling at times too. Small steps on the road to a healthy lifestyle will get us where we want and need to be.

Hello, thank you for the encouragement. Motivation and staying motivated have always been my biggest problem. I live alone and my family is very busy with there own things so (I have no real support system for encouragement at all. It has been a rough battle for me and the things I have learned here at SparkPeople has really helped me to WANT to get healthier. The best thing I have done for myself is Join this group, Thank You very Much!

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.

A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

You have come to the right place. SparkPeople has many tools for motivation and how to reach your goals. I started tracking my food, exercise and SparkPoints.

Tracking food helps me see how and what kind of foods I am eating. It helps avoid the thoughtless eating.

Tracking exercise helps me see how I am progressing and how active I am. I believe the more active I am, the healthier I am and the more weight I can lose.

Tracking SparkPoints motivates me to read articles, take quizzes, etc., all that provides knowledge and motivation to lose weight. Learning from others is the key I think.

I wish you success in your journey to losing weight.

New to Spark and here. Hoping to lose weight. This is so fun and easy to track my food, and free!!!

The journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Let go and let God.
