Welcome. The fact we can all make excuses but I am determined. So I plan ahead on food and exercise. But I don't work so I can walk each morning. The thing is I do it for me and for my dog who really needs it. So I have made it a habit and hate when I can't go. I love going yard work to keep me busy and now once a week I go to daughters to swim. How bad do you want to lose. Find fun stuff you love to do and it won't feel like exercise. !! You can do it !

loving myself as i am beautiful inside and out!!! Think positive .. you can do it!!!..... i do care.��Life is not easy for any of us, but what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.� � Don't give up we all can do this!!
Lost 110 pounds so far! i am loving it!
I am now exercising 50 mins a day working up to 60 ! Keeping active is so important!

emoticon It is so hard to lose an ounce and so easy to gain a pound. It's a lifestyle change not a diet, so we don't have to lose the same pound over and over again.

Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my weight goals

Hello, I have been using this site to help with my health for about a month now. I did not lose a lot of weight but I think what I’m doing so far is better than nothing. :)

I used a competitor’s site for about 2 years, and lost 45 pounds in total. I was very proud of myself and very happy about the results.

Unfortunately, because of different circumstances, and a lack of motivation, I regained 30 pounds pretty quickly. I still have some of the benefits of fitness that I had before though, which is good (I am not as out of breath as 3 years ago when climbing stairs, etc.).

My main “excuses” not to exercise (and I would take any tips to fight those excuses):
- no time in the morning because I woke up too late (and have to go to work)
- too tired in the evening,
- my foot hurts (I have chronic tendonitis),
- there is a heatwave and I’m afraid to be sick if I work out in that warmth.

On a side note, for the admins of the site: it occurs to me that Sparkpeople’s site has a real goldmine of information on health and habits of people. Even in anonymizing the data, the admins could use the information in their database to demonstrate if there is really a correlation between the amount of calories eaten and the amount of sleep slept, or the mood level vs the amount of sleep, etc. This would be super interesting to see, I think.

Have a nice weekend everybody!

PS: sorry if I made some mistakes with my syntax or grammar, english is not my first language :)
