Kassi-
Thank you for becoming my "friend" on Spark People. You are my very first one!!!! From what I have read, it sounds like you have some AWESOME goals in mind.

When I was in HS I used to weigh 185+ pounds, and my friend was always the beautiful one. After I got out of HS, I realized I felt SOOO bad about myself (like I didn't even want to leave the house) I decided it was finally time to do something about it--and stop "dreaming."

It is a hard journey. But it gets easier with practice. Some of the best advice that I received (and used) was that--in order to see results from your cardio workout, it is important to go PAST 20 minutes. (This helped me A LOT!!!) I finally started going past 20 minutes, and now, generally my goal is to do 40 minutes.

The other piece of advice that I got is that it is SUPER SUPER important to watch what you eat (especially when working out if you want to lose weight). There was a time when I was working out, but not watching what I eat and I didn't realize what I was doing wrong until I finally asked someone.

Don't think that you have to stop eating food (I LOOOVE TO EAT!) However, it's super important to MONITOR what you eat!--That's how SparkPeople helps me. With the Nutrition Tracker. Even though I don't use it every day, I pay attention to my calorie intake (when I want too).

If you ever need any support, advice, anything...feel free to hit me up!!! Now a days, my weight is around 150. I couldn't be happier with how much more motivation I have to live healthier.

I would love to hear from you!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
