Thanks for the advice.
As weight loss is a journey, so too will be exploring all the useful tools on the SparkPeople site.......enjoy the journey one stop at a time!!!!
Thanks for the advise! I hope I can be sucessful at this!
Great article and advice! I am resisting the temptation to make a goal that is too big. I know I am going to be successful thanks to all of the help available from everyone on this site!
I read the article and it makes sense to me old saying( Rome wasn't built in a day) I agree with the article
today I am hoping this is a start of a healthy lifestyle for myself and child. It seems to be alot of fun, hope i can keep up, I'm not very good at finding my way around on the computer. But I am going to give it my best.
It is such a pleasure to meet others in my age group who are struggling to become healthy again. I hope to improve my flexibility and exercise tolerance. Presently I could go to sleep after doing very lilttle. I am fighting it and each day it seems to get a little better. I was always active and still am to a ceratain degree. I am a nurse and need to be able to lift very heavy patients ( some weigh in excess of 350 lbs.) I am 71 years old and am in fair to good health. My biggest problem is the weight . I am 45 lbs overweight and I have bilateral hip replacements. My goal is to live to see all my grandchildren finish college and be healthy along the way. MaresL
I just joined this Tuesday, 3/2/09. Still finding my way around. Think I'll do better next week, since I'll have the weeks menus in advance. Right now I'm doing a lot of substituting. I sure would like to see more lean meat in the menus. I really like chicken and fish. I am 67 years old and don't need the calories I've been eating. YIKES. My hubbie isn't much help. He weighs over 300 lbs. Double YIKES.
chat later, bye for now
It takes time to become familiar with the SP site. I joined in March but didn't get started until April on the weight loss journey, so I now belong to both teams - March and April. But it is so worth it! Such a helpful site with all of its motivational talks and the nutrition tracker is valuable beyond words. Thank you, SP
