One Spark at a Time

I joined a gym a couple of months ago and I have been going three days a week, most weeks. I signed up for the 28-day boot camp. I have a lot of weight to get rid of, but have run into obstacles and decided not to make that one of my goals yet. I am going to try to keep moving and eat as sensibly as possible. If I accidently loose some weight, I will be thrilled. If I don't I will just keep moving and continue to eat as sensibly as possible. I am down 28 pounds from my all-time high, but it has ...

If I accidently loose some weight, I will be thrilled. If I don't I will just keep moving and continue to eat as sensibly as possible. I am down 28 pounds from my all-time high, but it has been a very long bumpy ride. Now all I have to do is figure out some of the nuances of the web page. Tried to get a grocery list and the only way I could save anything was to say I already ate it. I go to a gym 3 days a week, so would like to change the 10 minutes of cardio to 20 or 30 depending on the day. Haven't figured out how to do that yet either. First day spent so much time on the Spark web page, I missed my trip to the gym, but I made it back to the gym today.

Saw your comment on Coach Dean's article -

You should be able to track your weight from your Start Page - there should be a button underneath your food and fitness tracker buttons that is called "Weight Tracker (and measurements)".

If this doesn't show up on your start page, post on the "Technical Support" message board at the following link -

Hope this helps!

Happy New Year and congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you! I'm glad you're intro message worked this time AND 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.

emoticon

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.

emoticon

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!

I Updated my strength exercises. There is a place at the bottom for stretches, but I can't figure out how to say I did any stretches. I added some stretches to my favorites, but I don't know where they went.
