What a privilege it is to be part of SparkPeople! I have met a lot of nice & encouraging people, and I have had the chance to encourage also. The team spirit is really evident. What a joy it is to be a part of my teams (see below)

I grapple with the ups and downs of losing weight. It is mostly going down though - slowly. In that way I hope it sticks as I add some healthy habits to my life.

I need to lose 50+ lbs. in order to be healthy. Now that I have found this site I am motivated to eat healthy things. And then ... after that I would like to go on a beach vacation!

My Program:
.First I am concentrating on getting some healthy food habits. One thing at a time works for me!

Stretching everyday, usually 15 min.

Playing with my cat!

Slowly will work into a walking/cardio program. 4/16 - I am trying a 1-month gym membership

Cutting down on carbohydrates & sugar.

    Thanks for the Goodie!

    I read your Sparkpage -- it's great that you are starting!! That is the hardest part I think.

    I just started again (4 weeks ago) after three years of beating myself up. I read somewhere that just changing one or two small habits can be the gateway to changing even more habits. So I decided I would do two things (and two things only for the time being) -- 1) I would walk every morning -- as fast/far as was comfortable and 2) I would drink a tall glass of water before every meal. That was it. If I could do other things -- great -- but I planned on being mindful about just those two things. So far so good. I feel so much better when I move every morning -- and I hadn't done that in forever.

    Best wishes to you on your journey -- you can do more than you ever thought you could!

    Hope you are doing well on your journey. Are you changing any habits yet? It takes time.

    Let me know what you are doing.
