You Can't Do Everything, But You Can Do Something

Monday, April 13, 2015

I've just joined SparkPeople and I'm amazed at all the features and things available. Of course, it looked a little overwhelming at first, not knowing where to begin and so much to do, read and learn. I think the best approach to maximize the SparkPeople experience is the same way to approach the task of losing weight: Just Do Something. I have 150 pounds to lose and that's an incredible journey to begin. Just like I won't learn all about SparkPeople in a day, I won't lose 150 pounds in a day either. But I can begin. I can't do everything, but I can do something.

And so my journey begins.... emoticon

    Hello...Spark People has become my support groups for you see I am a recovering grease-holic. Yes, it is true if you can "fry it" I can "eat it".

    Moderation is a very important key to being successful in our journey. One day at a time....Look for small victories...Look for non-scale successes.

    Spark People research has found that people who get involved in social teams tend to be more successful in their efforts.

    I want to personally invite you to join the SparkPeople's Official Healthy Habits Challenge Team. There you will find others that will support you in your journey and you will be able to help others as well.

    On our team page BOBCATGIRL76 one of our team leaders has a great article to check out. Let me know what you think.

    We are here to help. YOU can DO this! Oh by the way...have you ever tried Fried cardboard, don't have much favor but a nice crunch....lol....Live life today.

    Remember: By Endurance we conquer-Shackleton

    You are a big step ahead of a lot of new members because you realize it is going to take time to lose the amount you have to lose. As you said, it didn't show up overnight so it won't go away overnight either. You are taking a giant step by joining Spark People and starting your journey. Best of luck - we are here for you. We are on this journey together!
