Hi everyone,
My goal is to get up and move more, get better exercise habits and start committing myself to doing some form of exercise every day. :)

My goal is to get back into the swing of a regular exercise practice and to heal my relationship with food, cause it's out of whack currently.

My goal is to create good habits going into the Holiday season so that I'll make it through on a good note instead of a bad one. I also want to jump start my motivation and commitment to get to where I want to be.

I am here to challenge myself. My sister is getting married in June and I am the maid of honor. The other bridesmaids are very tall and very skinny. I do not want to be the odd one up there. I have been trying to lose the last 10 pounds and just need an extra push. Maybe this will be it!

Hi! In 2008 I was in a car accident and suffered severe neck and back injuries as well as brain injury. After all of my surgeries I gained a lot of weight and from being limited to my bed for a period of time I lost a lot of my muscle. To this day I am still struggling to regain my body's health and strength. I joined spark people about a year ago and was doing very well at exercising and eating well. I injured my neck and back at work and it seems that I fell of the wagon. I've gained back any weight I had lost and then some. I really want to take control of my health and build a stronger body. I'm hoping this challenge will help me get refocused and make exercise a priority in my life by creating the momentum that I need to accomplish my goals.

I ran a 5K in September but ended up with really bad shin splints. I haven't worked out consistently for weeks. I'm hoping this will jump start my workout again. I'd like to lose 5 pounds or more in the next 4 weeks. My ultimate goal is 30 lbs. by spring. I'm running another 5k in April and I'd like to run in under 30. Dropping 30 pounds will make that a lot easier.

I joined because I am looking for a bit of variation in my work out. At this point, I have lost over 120 lbs, and still have about 30 lbs to get rid of. I am already active, but needed a bit of a work out boost :) I am also looking to workout areas that I am missing (generally focus on my legs and arms and forget everything else!)
I absolutely love seeing the muscles emerge from out of the fat! emoticon

Thank you for all your advice. I really appreciate it. I pretty much know what is causing my stress and feeling depressed and I've tried to fix the problem but it only works for so long lol. I'm trying to at least do some of my goals if I can't do all of them. I would love to get on this website more than I can but currently don't have the net at my house so I can only use it at work. But I really appreciate your advice and this site is very helpful.

I want to be out of the 250's by December 31, 2010.
It is becoming cold so the desire is weaning to walk outside but I will go to the gym 5 days out of 7 even if its frigid. I have a ugg boots so I will wear it to the gym.. I want to be a size 12 by June 1, 2011.. I can do it... Yes

IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT!

My goals for this week...

I hope to start moving more. I know I need to get more exercise and I realize that it does not always have to be in one shot. I want to move more and spread it out through out the entirety of the day.

It should be interesting to start this week - thanksgiving week. Here's to getting started!

And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

My goal for this week is to get moving and get some sleep. My 3 year old loves to rollerblade, ride his bike, anything to just be outside. My dog is feeling neglected to. My youngest turned 3 months yesterday and I was released post c-section October 15 so I just had a baby has lost its power as an excuse over me!

When I'm going through those phases I do a couple of things. Sometimes I give myself a day to just go through it. I might write it out in a journal- which really helps me put things in perspective.

Sometimes I choose to do at least one goal during the day, whether it's sure eating my 3 fruits and veggies, drinking all my water, or tracking my food. Something- anything, so I don't go too far away from my goals.

You could:

-Listen to a positive, motivational CD.
-Do a 10 minute Spark video.
-Work on a hobbie or something that is motivating. (I like working on my vision collages.)

Reading Sparkpeople success stories helps, or sometimes reading about others who are having a worse time than I am having and commenting on their blogs and pages help.

It's not always easy to come up out of those dark times, but you must always have it in your mind to never give up-no matter what.

You may also want to think about what is causing your depression. Keeping a journal might be helpful. It will help you see possible patterns, which will help you create strategies to overcome those issues. I suffer from depression, and it was always worse around menstruation time.

Perhaps you can speak with you doctor about having some bloodwork done to make sure your levels are in balance.

Good luck in your journey.

Losing steam! Trying to get steam back! D8 I've dropped 23-25 pounds so far and it would be a low down and dirty shame if I let my habits, lethargy and emotion stop me now. So, using this to change things up and hopefully looking to lose 12 pounds by the New year. YEY.

It's time for me to start loving workouts again! I fell out of routine for very long and I can tell my moods and energy suffer for it.

So my goal is to get back into routine because exercise helps me balance my life! :)

I have the same goal! I really do miss running and it's been about the same amount of time for me since I stopped doing it. I miss the way I felt empowered and had so much more energy throughout the day. Best of luck to you!

My main goal for this challenge is to get back into the habit of consistently making good choices. I also have another goal of going to bed when I'm tired. I know that sounds like a no-brainer, but I usually just push through it to read one more page, watch one more show, or have ten more minutes with my husband. However, pushing through it causes me to make bad decisions.
I was so successful last year, and I need to believe that I can be that person again.
I plan on tracking my food and following this program, in addition to my beginning running program.

My goal is a simple one, really - to just get Started - procrastination/busy schedule/hectic life always gets in the way - just looking for that push - the motivation to take some time to take care of ME - so the goal is to stick with this each day and hopefully start a habit

My goal with this challenge is to develop a habit of daily exercise. I feel that the times I have been most successful in my weight loss have required an activity component. Looking forward to using this 28 day challenge to develop a new habit!

My goal is to get into the habit of a regular workout routine at least five days a week. I have so far committed to 2 days a week of (1 hour)water aerobics, so now it's time to up the ante. My 2nd goal is to drop 2 lbs a week(I want more but will take 2)with an end goal of 8+ lbs gone. Wish me luck as I am wishing you all the same. emoticon emoticon

My goal is to get into the habit of a regular workout routine. Get my depression under control by working out so that I dont need any medications. Also, get a kick start on my weight loss because I still have well over 100 lbs to loose to reach my final goal. My hope is that this will be a kick off for me to get into a routine so that I can be right along side my husband who is in the Army because I want to be able to do PT (Physical Training) with him so I dont hold him back. But my most achievable goal for the near future is I want to get a boost to complete a 5K the day after my birthday. I want to get the confidence that I have never had b/c I have been overweight for as long as I can remember.

I need this motivation, I am in the service and we have to do PT (Physical training) I fell behind.

I want to lose weight to gain my self confidence, be there for my baby boy. I just need that kick in my butt!

My goals are to get my eating undercontrol and incorporate more strength training into my regimin. I haven't been following my food very well the past few days and last week I went over my calories almost everyday.
