I prefer to exercise at the gym, but don't always have time to get there. In order to keep myself active at home, I have utilized my Wii (Wii Fit, Dance Dance Revolution, Walk it Out). It is fun, entertaining, and gets the heart rate going!

The best thing that has helped me is being accountable for the food i eat by the tracking and it is pretty easy with the sparks people.com way!! I know what i have consumed and i don't have any more if i have hit the limit or i can reward myself with a snack if i do really good!!!
The other is tracking the work outs!! It means i am getting up and moving instead of sitting on my Butt watching tv and getting more over weight!!!! I have been more active and i hope i will b want to be even more active once i get back into shape!!!!!!!Go Sparks people!!! YOu all are great!!
My job forces me to exercise every morning, so it's not really an option ...but what I used to do was come home after and skip both breakfast as well as lunch then gorge from the time I got home at night until I went to bed. I now come straight home and begin prepping my breakfast [usually a 1/2 cup of oatmeal or a piece of fruit with some groovy peanut butter]. After I have a sufficient amount of food to support the pills, I take my "One a Day -Active" multivitamin plus a B-complex.
After that, I get ready and by the time I'm done I'm usually feeling pretty jazzy so I grab a few pieces of fruit to keep me going throughout the day [yes, fruit eaten every 2 hours or so is more than enough to keep me going ...and my job is very physically demanding]. -This stabilizes my appetite.
