I start my day with a good breakfast, I carry friut with me when I know I am going to be out a few hours. I stay within my calories that are given on SP. My biggest secret is Walking...I made a daily goal to walk at least 120 minutes a day. Walking daily has made my journey a success.
I step out my back door and take off. I don't have to worry about what to wear, I save money on gym memberships, workout clothes, and my vehicle, ect. I use a pedometer helps me know how many steps I've taken, and a MP3 helps with me get more steps in my mile.

This journey has made me realize that if I spend my time stressing over me I usually end up being unsuccessful. If instead, I turn my attentions to others I not only help someone else but often contribute to my own success!!
Reaching out and helping others makes me determined to be a success because I do not want to let anyone that may be watching me down!!
The best way I know to stay motivated here on Spark is to read the Success Stories, visit the Success stories Sparkpages, and also to join a team or teams that will help you to step out of your "Comfort Zone" and whose members will be there to support you along this lifestyle journey.
One of the best teams I know for this is the BLC. It's members inspire, support, motivate, and help walk you through this process.
