What Works for Me: Free Diet and Exersice Help

January 7, 2009

I said check back with me, and really this past week has been super busy at work so no posts. I have set a goal this year especially after weighing myself recently and finding out I really am a FAT mom! I weight 270 pounds and have decided that I really do need to get a handle on this NOW.

So what am I using because most of you know I am a frugal mom. I love Sparkpeople. It is a get website that not only helps one live healthier. It is also free! No need for paying for a program with the diet and exercise suggestions that come from Sparkpeople. I really enjoy the community on it, the recipes, the journals :all will help me get a handle on my weight and lifestyle issues.

Roo and I both weighed in this week. My daughter does not need to lose any. She weighs in at 82 pound, 4’11 at age 11. So she is doing just fine, but I think she really wants to encourage her mom to get healthy. I am walking every day even if it is just a little, but this is where I need to do more. I need to exercise more.

Now I am off  again to see what is working for others this 1 st Wednesday of 2009. Why not drop by Rocks in my Dryerfor what are usually a great array of posts on what works. I will also be blogging this year on the challenges of losing pounds frugally and trying to have fun doing it. So check back ok!

    That’s funny that we both wrote about free exercise for Works for Me Wednesday! I have heard about Sparkpeople, but I’ve never looked into it myself. Thanks for the tip–it sounds like a great resource, and you can’t beat FREE!

    I did Spark People last year and I lost 13 pounds in a few weeks. It’s really effective. This year (because I have so fallen off the wagon!) I am giving Live Healthy America’s 100 Day challenge a try to kick-start my butt back into gear.
