    Thanks for the couch to 5 K website. I will definitly check that out. I can understand what you are saying. It was very difficult for me to go back to work when I had my second one and needless to say that she didn't take to well to it either. I'm glad that the evening workouts are going well for you. I'll let you know how it goes. Have a good night!

    Well my 4 month old has just started sleeping through the night. I was breastfeeding but had to stop a couple of weeks ago b/c I got really sick and had to be hospitalized. It was devestating for me to stop but there wasn't anything I could do about it. Anyway that really sucks about your little one getting up so much. When I was nursing mine would get up about 2 x / night and eventually I would get so tired that I would doze off in the chair. Is there a friend that you can exchange babysitting time with so you could exercise earlier in the day? I'm going to have to get up at 5 b/c I just can't find any other time. Keep me updated on your progress and I hope your little starts sleeping soon and both of your girls are absolutely adorable!

    I just wanted to welcome you to the young mom's team. I'm kind of in the same boat. I have 2 daughters, one is 4 years and the other is 4 months. I would like to lose about 70 lbs. but I'm determined to find the time to exercise in the new year. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

    Welcome to SparkPeople!

    Start with your Start Page! Here is a video to help you unlock the power of Your Start Page:

    Here's the video for the Nutrition Tracker - the best tool online!

    I was 54 when I joined SparkPeople and 56 when I came back and started my Spark Program, starting with Stage One. This is a one day at a time program, but if you do the SparkPeople Program Steps, it really does work. I am terribly average, it's the SP program that is extraordinary.

    I found logging my foods in the Nutrition Tracker helped me to lose 90 lbs in 16 months! I started at 210 and went to 120.

    I hung clothing that was too small on my closet door and every time I would get discouraged I would try them on. Week by week they started fitting! That kept me motivated.

    Welcome aboard, we really are all in the same boat! Sometimes we can sail right along but sometimes we have to be rowing like crazy!

    You can make it happen! SparkPeople really does work!

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
