  • Today I will use my fitbit for something other than a watch! I will walk 3,000 steps and continue learning how to navigate around on my spark page(s)...Day ONE starts for me June 11, in the mean time...making much better food choices. I love whole foods and always have plenty in the house..unfortunately all those "junk food" critters found their way back in..time to kick'em out for good !! - 6/7/2015 1:33:24 PM

  • I am a widow living alone and my children are totally involved in their jobs etc. I finally persuaded my friend to join me in workouts at the local rec. centre and I'm really grateful for that. We started this week; 3 days a week; with a personal trainer.
    We both have diabetes, arthritis and chronic pain; so need similar routines. :-). - 3/27/2015 7:46:50 PM

    The support starts with deciding to take charge of your health. Support from others is wonderful and a great blessing, but the first step is to be self-motivated. Surprisingly when those around you see your commitment, they will support your efforts. - 3/1/2015 4:04:09 PM

    Checking in. Hoping to get over negative self talk and actually do something about 20 lbs I put on in the last 2 years. Making me feel bad about myself. - 2/23/2015 8:47:22 AM

    I am starting today, off to good start. Made my lunch last night, focusing on portion sizes and staying away from fried foods. Got to start somewhere. - 2/18/2015 10:19:01 AM

    I am an older man who has heart problems, as well as, weight problems I joined WeightWatchers and a gym a year ago and have been trying to stay on track.
    My problem is that I don't always go to the gym or eat healthy, mostly it's lack of motivation. I am hoping by joining Sparkpeople and writing about it, I will succeed this time.
    I have lost 30+ pounds but can't break 180 and my goal is 165. I need help! - 2/18/2015 9:44:34 AM

    I am starting this today. I have told my hubby and I've told my friends on FB that today is the first day of my healthy living journey. I am an older mom with young children and my goal is to be healthier and have more endurance to keep up with them, and to live a long time. I have been here before, on the first day, many time, and I haven't succeeded at becoming healthier, in fact I have failed miserably. I will need support and motivation, and I would like to offer the same to others who need it. - 1/7/2015 12:22:41 PM
