Hello and Welcome!

There are plenty of exercise videos here on SP.
Also, tracking your food and being active here on the site will help keep you accountable and motivated.

Best of luck to you!

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Welcome back - so glad you have returned.

I don't live near you - I am up in Canada (West Coast) so having a walking buddy is not possible - but I am hear to cheer you on - I need a cheerleader also for keeping up the movement.

Suggestion - post on the groups you participate on - asking if there is someone there that can buddy up with you - hold you accountable.

I have a group called 'One Year of Making Healthy Lifestyle Changes' - we are a small group of ladies that participate regularly and everyone cheers the rest of the group on - us accountable and really care for each other. It might be a group you might want to look at - come to my Sparkpage to get to it - if you are interested please join us - we do ask that all members that join to remember that we are a group that encourages everyone to participate regularly ( once a week is good, more is better ) so if you are wanting encouragement this might be the group for you.

It's usually pretty tough finding somebody in your area willing to do that on here, but not impossible. Also, have you tried Facebook groups or meetup.com? Good luck!

Hi , I am Patty. I am a 63 year old grandma to one . I have several age related problems the biggest being my weight and my diabetes. I am a couch potato. I am uninspired to exercise at a gym. I am looking for someone to exercise with ...walk or whatever just no gym. I am way to embarrassed for that. I live in Nutter Fort West Virginia.
