    Usually I do 30 mins on my mini stepper in the morning, just about all I can handle without food, and still half asleep, lol. I do some isoemtric exercises at my desk at work, mainly core and legs, and also creep in some extra exercise in the bathroom when I visit, which is lots as I drink SO much water! In the evenings I usually do 30+ mins on the treadmill, which is at 6% and 9% incline 6kph, after the warm up, and also more strength training. Weekends I try and get in some walking, and in the better weather we have just got bikes to go out on.

    How about you?

    Good Morning Linda!!

    Looking at your goals we have pretty much the same goals. My goal is between 134 and 140lbs, and I'm determined to be fit and healthy.

    I'm getting married in September so my biggest motivation is my dress, and fitting into it without spilling over the top!

    Have a great day

    Happy New Year and congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you! I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

    Hi there,

    We are the same age. I lost about 40lbs in 2009, but put about 21 back on again last year. I have 2 girls aged 19 and 21, and a 3 year old grand daughter. then there's 'peanut' who is approx minus 6 months at the moment, lol.

    If you want someone to check in daily then feel free to add me, I'm on here pretty much every day, apart from when we visit my parents as they don't have the internet, emoticon
