  • 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 trying for the hundredth time to lose weight. My goal right now is to get under 200 lbs. It's really important for my health. I have NAFLD. - 2/11/2015 8:30:27 PM
