I joined SparkPeople a few months back and was actively taking the challenges and making friends and accomplishing my weight loss goals. Then a few things started to change in my life.

Sun, 24 Mar 2019 16:42:32 EST Introduction Hi, my name is Leslie. After a lifetime of fitness I am as out of shape and plus-weighted as I’ve ever been, and decided to forgo new year’s resolutions and take up this goal closer to spring. Hoping I can commit to daily exercise. <img src=""> Thu, 28 Feb 2019 11:21:03 EST Grouping Foods I am having trouble setting up a new group of foods. I try to follow the steps but can not get to Step 2. I enter the foods I want then I do not see a step 2 button. Directions say to hit the "close" button" I do not see one so I "x" out which closes all that I entered. Do I need an upgrade or something?

I am sticking and staying because we can do it. <em>345</em> Fri, 7 Mar 2014 12:36:57 EST Woohoo! Made it to week 4 I made it! And I have loved it. I have never been a person who loved exercise. I have had moments that I have enjoyed it, but never before I have actually looked forward to it everyday. I don't know if it was this challenge or just something inside me, but I get excited to workout every day and I am looking forward to trying new forms of exercise as my ability and fitness increase. <BR> <BR> SO!

I am looking for a fitness journey partner. My criteria is simple; that we be able to meet. Other than that, male/female, lots of weight to lose/a little, no weight to lose/weight to gain, illness/no illness, age are all irrelevant. Our common ground would be our desire to become more physically active, our desire to connect with nature, and our desire to become more social/have more fun. How does this sound to you?

Right now i'm supposed to eat 1200-1500 calories a day and burn 860 calories a week. It is the third day of the week and i have already burned close to 700 calories. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I was feeling pretty lazy and tired of the same old exercises, so i only did the Day 6 challenge. But other than that, i have been doing good.

I've been doing cardio about 6 times a week for 30 minutes. I am hoping this week brings much change. I can tell my clothes are less tight, but still frustrated the weight number isn't down as well.
