Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Glad to meet you, Sandy. I have been a SparkPeople member since January 2010 and I can say with all honesty that it is the best thing I have ever done for myself. There is so much motivation and so many people to help you. It's easy to use, and it's fun!

I am just saying hello! Working on getting healty, dropping weight, and being more fit. Good luck to you all!
I am currently a stay at home mom, I left my career (art teacher) to stay at home and be with my son.... it has been the best and worst thing I have ever done! I have really packed on weight over the last 5 years. Now that he is off to school in the fall, I am job hunting. I am looking forward to getting back to work, but am realizing I am so out of shape nothing fits and my energy is very low. I want to feel and look better!
Thanks for taking a min. to get to know me!
Sandy
