Wow I finally have decided to do it! I am going to start to take care of me. I have a lot going on in my life but taking care of me has to be my priority. I am going to need a lot of butt kicking honest comments people. I have spent years lying to myself so I will try to do it again but you just bust my butt!!! I love the site and the available tools to me and I can do it on my time when I am home. Looking forward to chatting with you all and getting to know more about us Spark People.

Hello. First of all I have to say that I have the best husband in whole world!! After weeks of trying to get my Tracker going, he came into the kitchen and attached it to my shoe and said, "You're in business!!" This is my 2nd Tracker. I lost the first one. I was doing so well with it, too, so I'm super excited to have this one working. Not sure if the problem was my computer or the tracker, but thank you, Wonderful Husband!! Report
Hi, The Progresso Light Soups are excellent, have lots of flavor, and are VERY diet friendly. If you can't find them or feel that they are out of your budget, try amping up the Campbells with some dried herbs. See which ones are already in the soup and add some more of them as you heat it up. You'll have to taste it as you go to make sure you get it the way you want it, but it will be worth it.

An example from what happened to me, My husband and I love Sweet Potato Pie, being a diabetic I actually found a recipe in a Diabetic cookbook. The first time I made it, it was very bland. So the next time I just doubled the amounts of the spices,( such as nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. And it was perfect. Don't be scared or shy about using herbs and spices to make things more palatable, the only limit is your imagination and taste buds. Report
Has anyone tried the Campbells heart healthy choice soups? I have and to me they do not have any flavor. Should I eat the regular soups or the health one and what can I do to add flavor to the soups?
I would cut back some. The 3.5 pounds you lost is usually (politely) a system flush (detox) reaction. The added fiber or the flesh of the fruit and the vegetables are causing the gas and cramps. Two pieces of wheat bread will help ease the cramps. You might also pace yourself on the exercises and allow your body time to adjust to them. After the water weight initial loss you will lose a little slower. Most people lose about 1 to 2 pounds a week as muscle adds weight, but helps burn more fat and adds tone to your body shape.

Pace yourself, weight loss takes time and perseverance. Warm up before exercising and don't overdo it. Injuries are easy until you learn to listen to your body (the stomach cramps), take your time. Be nice to yourself and keep going.

Pace yourself. Set a goal and chip away at it. Share your successes with others, even those small ones.

Need some help or advice. I'm on my 4th day, have lost 3.5 lbs. But I am having stomach cramps and severe diarrhea today. I went from eating just 1 meal a day in the evening and no water, now I eat 3 meals a day with lots of fruit and veggies and 6-8 glasses of water. Should I back off a little or what am I doing wrong. I love Sparkpeople. Report
