emoticon Roxanne!!!
emoticon on taking the first steps to a healthier you. A emoticon toast to a healthier and more enjoyable life! emoticon emoticon emoticon And emoticon prayerfully you will find that you can enjoy it more than you would ever imagine!!!
Some thoughts and suggestions as I say emoticon to Spark People.
emoticon This sight has so much to offer! One of the easiest ways to learn a lot about what it has to offer is to go to your "My SparkPoints" tracking Page. Next to each opportunity to earn Sparkpoints there is a link that will take you to the place on the site that helps you complete the task. Some are one time opportunities, others are daily tasks. Complete as many tasks as possible per day.
emoticon don't emoticon to the temptation of making the journey all about the numbers. It is not about pounds taken off or inches trimmed, it is all about creating a healthier and more fit you. emoticon
emoticon Be on the lookout for the many, many, many non-scale non-tape measure victories you will achieve. Feeling healthier, breathing easier, enjoying activities that were once a drudgery, trying something new and enjoying it, choosing a healthy snack versus an unhealthy option, choosing a less than healthy food option over a decadent food option! The possibilities for non-scale victories are ENDLESS. emoticon
Some things to remember: emoticon drink plenty of water every day!
emoticon sleep well, it is probably more important than you know. emoticon healthier every day. emoticon Don't go the way of total deprivation, it is apt to set you up for failure and a binge that will leave you feeling devastated. Look for opportunities to emoticon every day. emoticon when you need to --it is healthier than emotional eating! Find ways to emoticon emoticon emoticon exercise that you ENJOY. The right form of exercise is the one you can stick with regularly!!! Something else may burn more calories in a shorter time, but if it makes you give up you won't burn any calories! emoticon
emoticon MAKE EVERY STEP COUNT. Even steps that seem to move you backwards or to the side have a purpose. Sometimes it is just to get another look at something you passed by without noticing.
Perhaps most importantly from my perspective DONíT LOSE weight or inchesÖTAKE THEM OFF, emoticon KICK THEM TO THE CURB. You arenít interested in FINDING them again. GET RID OF THEM through hard work, determination, accountability, whatever it takes!!!
Finally, join teams, make friends, encourage others, be encouraged, take challenges, write out SMART goals regularly and track! Track! TRACK!!! It will help with both accountability and motivation, and You will be glad you did!!!
Feel free to stop by my page, let me know if there is anything I can do to help you in the journey!

emoticon Roxanne emoticon to Spark PeopleÖyou will find lots of information on sparkpeople as well as lots of support and encouragement from all our members.

Things to remember that will help you reach your goal:

Be sure to track your water you drink. You need to drink 8-8oz glasses of water a day Ė just one at a time throughout your day and you can reach this goal.

Use your nutrition tracker daily: tracking your food at first will seem difficult but over time it will become second nature.

Use your fitness tracker: Get active/exercise: just 10 minutes here and there adds up quickly. Park your car further from the store and walk. Take stairs rather than the elevator, etc.

Remember this is one step at a time, one minute at a time, one day at a time and it all adds up. Donít feel you need to start with 30-60 minutes in one sitting at first. It will come in time.

Remember this is about changing your life style not dieting. So do it little at a time, in baby steps. Donít expect miracles right awayÖagain it is a life style change!!! And over time you will begin to notice the difference in how you feel, your energy level, and how you look.

Post your questions and concerns: Donít be afraid to ask question or seek out help. We are all on the same journey but at different levels of that journey.

Setbacks can be and are a part of this journey: Donít let them dictate your mood or progress. Let it go and keep moving forward. Keeping your focus on your goal and you will reach them in time.

Celebrate: Celebrate all your accomplishments. (Set small goals for yourself so you have a way of seeing your progress) Do this through blogging, posting updates and rewarding yourself.

What SparkPeople has done for me: I am a type 2 diabetic that is off all my medicine. (I was on 5 orals plus insulin now down to 1 oral which I go off of Feb 1, 2012). Let me tell you how God and SparkPeople have and are helping me: Wow, I have always been heavy and at my peak I was 345lbs. With Godís help and the tools on SparkPeople I have been able to lose 175lbs to date reaching my goal as of 2-2-12. I am now on a new journey of maintaining this weight. And I know with Godís help and SparkPeople tools you can do it too!! (I have always recognized that itís God who has enabled me to be who I am and to accomplish all I have accomplished)

God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
