I have been with Spark People since March of '08. I have lost a total of 23 lbs, so far. I came across an illness that has slowed me down a bit but I'm willing to push forward and fight for the last 18 lbs that I need to lose.

STRENGTH TRAINING

Here's a great site on how to ease in to strength training:

If you're just getting started here are a few things to keep in mind (and trust me, they work!):

1. Don't give up or give in.

2. Start off slowly if you need to but be sure to add a little bit more to each day.

3. If you drink soda or other sugary drinks- STOP. Replace with water or tea. Takes awhile to get used to but it's the best thing I ever did for myself.

4. Eat small, well balanced meals 5 x's a day. It helped me.

5. Most importantly, set realistic goals for yourself.
