With SparkPeople.Com, it's a lifestyle, not a diet.

I have reached my destination regarding a healthier lifestyle and my weight loss goals. It took me longer, but I have found that slow and steady keeps you on course and helps avoid detours, you can not have an all or nothing attitude (I have maintained my goals weight now for over 7 years).

This is my advise to others who are beginning their healthier lifestyle journey: SparkPeople really works, but the key is you and consistency. Create a SparkPage and have it set so members can ...
I have reached my destination regarding a healthier lifestyle and my weight loss goals. It took me longer, but I have found that slow and steady keeps you on course and helps avoid detours, you can not have an all or nothing attitude (I have maintained my goals weight now for over 7 years).

This is my advise to others who are beginning their healthier lifestyle journey: SparkPeople really works, but the key is you and consistency. Create a SparkPage and have it set so members can see it (I didn't want to do this at first either, but if you commit to this go all the way, we also would like to get to know you better, no strangers here, just friends you have never met). Find and join SparkTeams that fit your interests and needs (best place to talk to your new friends, and get all the support and motivation you will need). Stay active on your teams by joining in the challenges and post frequently. Track your food; drink at least 8 glasses of water a day (challenge yourself to work your way up to it if you are finding this difficult). Add different exercises to your day (start off slowly and increase the amount of exercise over time). Take baby steps, and before you know it those baby steps become giant leaps.

SparkPeople is free, but the rewards are priceless.

Happy Easter ...too hard not to get excited about such a great day. emoticon

Wishing you only the greatest of everything. Hope this spring is the time to reach those goals, get closer or to start again. emoticon

Watch out because I am back and ready to run, walk, cycle and do whatever it takes to meet my goals. What about you?

Hello Sonia,
thank you for your encouragement on my blog! I LOVE your profile pic winter haiku – that's so me during the winter time! Wishing you success with your walking as well – I agree that a step tracker can be a great motivator. And yes, I've heard it before that people have had less issues with the Fitbit than with the Spark Tracker. I would have tried the Spark Tracker but I can't order it here in Europe. So far I'm pretty happy with my Fitbit.
All the best to you, keep walking!
Bine
