New to this

I am new to the site so still trying to figure it out!
I am at the bottom lately, I am struggling soooo bad! Being overweight is so hard, and I am sooo close to giving up, but I have given up on myself my whole life. It is time for me to start believing in myself!

    It does take some time to get use to the site. there is so much good information sometimes it feels like you are drowning in it. my suggestion is try and focus on one thing at a time. I tried to figure it all out to fast and got overwhelmed, so now I am taking it slower. I wish you luck, you can be successful.

    If you need to focus on being consistent with just 1 thing, then that's what you do. Slowly add 1 more goal and then 1 more and then..... I have to keep reminding myself, this is an overall lifestyle change, and it may take me a while to get where I am going. emoticon emoticon

    Welcome to SP. It's a great site! Be sure and sign up for Spark America and when you set up your exercises, just remove any you can't do or don't want and put in those you do. Be sure and schedule a day for cardio so you have access to the "other exercises" page where the walking, housework, playing with children etc. are to be found. When you are done, set up your Appointment calendar to send you reminders and when they come, click on the link then fitness and just check them off as you do them. Such a great feature. Use your spark points page to help you use and learn all the fantastic tools we have at this site. Visit others pages and get to know them better. Again, welcome to a great site.

    Make a good decision and let it snowball you into another one. I've started over many time's sometimes I start over each day. Today I tracked and excersized, yesterday I only tracked breakfast forgot my pedometer and didn't have time to excersize. Something is always better than nothing!!

    Take it in small steps. Don't go all out at once, small manageable changes and steps that you can handle. You can do it!
