Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Welcome to the team. I have taken off 55 pounds so far and still have 85 to go. If I can do it anyone can, because I am basically lazy. Good luck on your journey:)

Keep the dream alive, don't let it die

If something deep inside you, keeps inspiring you to try,

Don't stop

And never give up,

Don't ever give up,

On you

Welcome and you can do this! You are worth the effort. Good luck on your journey!

You'll never achieve your dreams if they don't become goals.

Dreams are extremely important. You can't do it unless you imagine it.
- George Lucas


Happiness is not a matter of good fortune or worldly possessions. It's a mental attitude. It comes from appreciating what we have, instead of being miserable about what we don't have. It's so simple - yet so hard for the human mind to comprehend.

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.

"Plant a seed of friendship; reap a bouquet of happiness." - Lois L. Kaufman

A friend is someone who you can tell your
complaints; a good friend is someone you
can tell your dreams. --Dale Dauten

Life without friends is like a garden without flowers.

I pray for willpower and strength. I'm hoping to meet freinds here to give each other encouragement. May 2010 be a Great succesful year for us all! emoticon
