    Lisa, thanks for the encouragement and prayers! May God bless us both as we seek to please Him in all things...including exercise and eating! God bless.

    Thanks for checking in after the storm. It was quite scary, huh? The tornado sirens went off twice but I had no damage here in St. Peters. My hometown of Washington, MO had lots of wind damage and power outages. I checked on my aunt and a few friends that live there and they are fine. Some property damage put nothing major. Thank God! How about you?

    We had a great walk yesterday but we're still laughing at how long it took us to walk the 5K (3.1 miles I think). It took us 75 minutes! That's slooooooooow! I guess we were enjoying out talking more than our walking! Hey, we still did it, right?! We're hoping to step it up and cut 15 minutes off of our time!

    How are you doing?

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    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' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - 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.


    If you haven't already 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.


    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!

    Just checking in to see how it's going for you. Getting started can be tricky but I know you can do it! There's a lot of support on Spark if you need it. Have a good rest of the weekend!
