What SparkPeople Has Taught Me:

***Take Baby Steps***
I've learned how to cut my big goals down into much smaller ones. Taking small steps and having small successes has helped me stay within my calorie range and to workout regularly.

***Work out***
I've learned working out doesn't mean an hour a day. 10 minutes a day can make such a difference. I never thought I would ever say it, but - "I love working out". I've discovered different varieties of workouts - I don't have to do the same thing everyday. Finding new workouts and challenges has made working out fun. I can't wait to workout everyday.

***Forgive Yourself***
I've learned to forgive myself when I slip-up. We all have days that are just not right - eat too much, don't feel like working out. I've learned not to beat myself up over them. Yesterday is over. There's nothing I can do about it now. I can't change yesterday, but I 'can' get back on track and start fresh today.

Giving support is just as rewarding as getting support. Some days you just need that extra, "Don't give up. You can do it". to get through. Supporting others actually helps me stay on track.
