Hi Cindy,

Welcome to Spark People. emoticon

You have come to the right place. This is not just about dieting, it is about life style change and finding support from positive people. Check out the Fitness Tracker and Nutrition Tracker features. These are powerful tools to help you get on track and stay on track. Try blogging, too. It is amazing the support you get from others who are struggling with similar issues or who have overcome them.

Jump in, join some teams, and be kind to yourself. Change doesn't happen over night, but it does happen.

Welcome to the new you!

Chris

Hi my name is Cindy and I am new to Spark. I have motivated myself to lose weight to feel and look better. I begun my weight loss journey in 2010, but really kicked it up a noch in May of 2011. Since 2010 to date I have lost 42 pounds and I'm very proud of my acheivements, though there are time when I need extra motivation, but I will not give up!
