~ Time to regroup after summer partying and get serious...cycling, running, weights, snow shoeing, Pilates, yoga...I am up for just about anything...My challenge, to do these things consistently ~ to schedule time to invest in my health. Pack my lunch and stay off the sauce. ha!

I set new goals and challenges daily - I am RE-committed to overall self improvement and the kind of personal growth that does not always show up on the scale.

Follow Your Star ~ Trust Your Instincts ~ Dare To Be Your Best!

    Welcome to SparkPeople! I suggest that you take some time to create a solid weight loss planning using resources from SP. Not only will this make losing the pounds easier, but you'll also discover what SparkPeople has to offer in the process.

    I'm all for joining up to meet (what seems to me to be) a giant goal of 13.1 miles by September 2011.

    Happy Early Anniversary! You're looking great already!

    Welcome, Intheloop, to SparkPeople!! I'm glad to hear you are already an active runner. That is great. On Sparks you can track your miles, create maps of routes, calculate calories burned, and meet lot of other runners than can help you overcome obstacles and stay on track. I admire your running. I jog 100 steps for intervals and go like crazy on the elliptical, but not really running now.

    I am 61 years old and am keeping off an 80 pound loss. It is never too late! Best wishes for a happy journey to fitness and a lifetime of health!

    I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    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!
