Good information! Report
Thank you for the article! I woke up this morning with the intention of losing weight and feeling good about myself. I finally told God I give up and cannot do this on my own.In 2005 I joined a very small inclusive website called Spark People. The motivation and assistance led me to lose nearly 100 pounds! Loss of a Mom and a job, as well as annual major surgeries fed into my need to stress eat. In the past 5 years I have gained nearly 30 pounds back and I am miserable. But with God and your help, I am starting the program I completed 13 years ago and it is time to lose the weight and feel good again. Thank you for the jump start. It actually came Wednesday in a Happy Birthday email from Spark People. God knew right where to start and who to bring into my life: YOU!!! Report
I need to get some things in order and this article made me realize just how much. Report
Great article Report
Even though the article is dated, the advice is good. I have such good intentions to journal, start and then it falls by the wayside. I commit to journaling for the next 5 days. Report
This was written in 2004, the so called "Journey" theme is wearing thin by now......because most of us keep packing and repacking, and thinking we shouldn't be happy until we finally "arrive".......but are weary of the trip. Report

A lot of important considerations. Report
Interesting step by step guide to do something I keep putting off. The only thing I seem to excel in is procrastination. Report
I liked this article and think it's really encouraging, especially for people who are just starting...or who, like me, keep restarting. It's never too late and having a good plan is essential. I have just one bone to pick: food as a reward has generally been frowned upon, especially here on SP. Suggesting someone go out to their favorite restaurant as a reward for making strides toward healthier lifestyle? I don't now about that one. Report
This message spoke to me this morning as I am, once again, beginning a wellness program.
Determined to stick to it and need all the encouragement I can find! Spark People have helped before I drifted back to old ways. so now, I begin again to try to succeed with weight loss. No easy path except diet and exercise but when successful, the feeling is euphoric!. Today is yet another Day One. All of my photos are before pictures!! I want a decent AFTER picture! Report
Thank you for reminding me how important these little steps are. Report
I don't think much of me but I do love the ones around me and they motivate me. Report
I need to stop comparing myself to other, like it is my only self worth. It sets me back every time .Thank for the blog Report
