It makes me accountable. I always blog even if it is just a sentance or two, and try to track my food intake. I also enjoy the support from others

Here to help keep myself on track - starting to eat healthy and exercise for the first time in YEARS (and I mean year!). Feeling strong so far almost 3 weeks in, but I want to stay strong for the long run this time and get healthy! I need buddies to help share successes and failures!

Hello:

I certainly agree with you. I just started two days ago, I believe this time I can and will lose the weight.

I will track my food intake that will make me be accountable. Good luck to you, you too will lose the weight and be successful.

I like coming here to keep up with tracking food and exercise. Even when I do get to my goal weight, this is a habit that I don't think I want to break! Plus now that I got my sister in law on here, it feels like one more connection with her and its fun to read her blogs and have her input on mine!

I adjust my weight loss ticker as 10% goals are reached!

Definitely for the support and motivation. Spark is way more that just a website. I absolutely love the way people that have no idea who or what you are about have no qualms about helping you meet your goals and keeping you motivated! Sparkpeople Rocks!

I'm fairly new here - this is my second full week of keeping track of what I eat.

Honestly - that is my primary reason right now. I'm tracking my food intake. If it wasn't for the quality of the tracker - particularly the database of foods including vitamin content, I would probably be using another site.

That being said - I know there is so much more here that I can learn about. Its just taking a lot of my energy right now to focus on keeping my food intake in line. I'm glad that there will be other areas for me to grown into as time goes on - in particular the organization and inspiration threads.

Thanks so much for being here and leading these groups - I know I'll be taking better advantage of them in the near future.

Inspiration :)There's some amazing people on SP and some amazing stories and journeys. There's so much hype out there about magic pills or special diets to help you lose that weight fast. It feels good to know that there are people losing the weight using hard work and smart choices, one day at a time.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Hi Daisey042!
You should check out my blog from 1/11/11... the scale is a miserable little tool from time to time...
Your body will retain water until it feels like releasing it... us women also have hormonal issues that cause water weight gain. I actually had a 2 pound increase over 4-5 days and then finally I lost 3... don't let it concern you. Try to pick one day a week to be your "weigh in day"... all the other days you step on the scale you can just use as a guide... the true success is how you are feeling.
Consistency, Patience, Persistence and Determination will get you where you want to be ;)
Just hang in there!!!


EXERCISE/ DIET AND BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION!!!

Persistence... Determination... Consistency... Prayer...
FAITH
This is how I am going to reach my goal of weight loss...

My problem this week is I'm eating right, exercising, drinking plenty of water and I'm gaining. 0.4lbs. everyday for the past 4 days. What is going on with my body? What can I do to get the scales to go back down instead of up?

I would have to say for the support,inspiration and motivation, to know that there are others trying to do the same thing and understand how hard it is when you have to lose a whole person or so.

When the end of the journey seems impossible to reach, all you need to do is take one more step.

Seeing others accomplishing their goals really motivates me to continue to try on mine.

This is such a great group for motivation!

I enjoy the social aspect of it too. And earning points is a bit of a game, so I always start off each day by earning points from emails, then I end up surfing to other pages and tracking goals, etc. So I'm here pretty much all day during the week.

I enjoy the social interaction with like-minded people. As someone else said, it's more than a website. I've met so many wonderful people here, and some of them have become such close friends outside this website, it's AWESOME!!
I have no better support network than here!

If it's amazing, it won't be easy. If it's easy it won't be amazing. If it's worth it you won't give up. If you give up you're not worth it.

I feel like I've made such great connections with people, from all walks of life and all parts of the country; this is not just a website, it's a real community of like-minded people who have similar issues and goals. Spark is a place where I can get support when I need it, and I can give support when someone else needs it.

Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You will succeed if you persevere: and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.

Besides loosing weight, what is the number 1 reason you come to SparkPeople everyday?
