    Welcome to SparkPeople!

    Are you competitive by nature? One of my daily goals is to hit 100 SparkPoints. When I do that, I've not only read articles, I've interacted with other members by reading and commenting on their blogs and writing my own blog. 100 points gets me here and gets me active each and every day.

    When I started, I made the commitment to workout daily and write a blog about it. On days when I don't feel like doing it, I think about the blog I need to write and I certainly do NOT want to write that I was lazy and did not work out.

    Maintain your goals on your SparkPage (that's what all the goal-setting gurus write about) and make the goals public on your page. Write about it on your blog every day.

    Weight loss = calorie maintenance, cardio, and strength. Calorie maintenance is every day, cardio is at least five days per week, and strength is 3 to 4 days per week. I believe you need all three for a successful weight loss and fitness program.

    Above all, be consistent. Doing something toward you goal every day will pay big rewards over the next few months. You can do this!

    Welcome, April! One of the things that's great about sparkpeople is that it works for anyone trying to get healthier- be it weight loss/gain, etc! I do find that most of us on the message boards seem to be on the weight loss side of the equation, but the boards are a great way to get broad input on a question. I would really recommend that you find some sparkteams for people with similar goals- you'll have a smaller community of support and motivation there! You can find them under the community tab. I also love the articles on this site because they are full of accurate information, and there are videos on the site with workouts you can do and you can customize strength workouts based on what resources you have available to you! I wish you the best of luck, and if you have any questions, feel free to message me!
