First month with Sparkpeople

Sunday, August 09, 2009

I am so hooked. I spend so much time on this website so much to learn (it almost hinders my exercise...lol). I have been up and down with my weight for quite a few years now. I was in 2 automobile accidents in 2007 and put on even more weight, which in turn adds to the pain.
I have decided that I need to track my calories and begin exercising little by little. I began walking a 6 km trail one day a week with some friends and have up it to 2 days per week now.....that's 12 km a week. Better than sitting on the couch.
I am also holding myself accountable for everything that goes into my mouth. What do I have to do to burn this or that.
My biggest struggle is I do have a lot of drinking days.....this is going to be the bump in the road for me...big decisions I need to make.

    Congrats on your first month emoticon
    When I first started spark I was the same way, you will eventually get into a routine and you can exercise and spark, but oh spark is addictive.

    Hi - welcome to SP. Looks like you have the right idea and it looks like you're losing some weight already. That is awesome. Keep is up. I know what you mean about spending too much time here - lol.

    Just remember to take it one day at a time. I have not been a member long, but I too am on this site a lot. I spend spare time on it when I'm at work. I really enjoy acquiring all the knowledge about my weight loss journey.

    There are lots of articles and information to assist with whatever challenge you have now or will have in the future of your endeavor.

    Best wishes and welcome to SP
