That's good because I wasn't really looking for a diet program in that since. I want to be healthier not just thinner. I never cared before and didnt know how else to put it.

Thanks for introducing yourself!! We are happy to have you! I love this site because Spark People promotes more of a healthy lifestyle than a restrictive diet mentality.
When I first started using SP, I tried to get as many Spark Points a day as I could. This helped me really get to know the program and I learned a lot from reading the articles and taking the quizzes. This is one of my favorite quizzes on the myths of weight loss: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/quizzes_start .asp?quizid=34 Be sure to read all the explanation and visit the links to other articles and resources within them when you have the time.
Good luck and happy Sparking!!

Hello everyone. I want to say that I have never seriously dieted before its new for me. Until the last few years I have been very lucky in my weight. I have never been this heavy before so I wasn't sure what was to been done. I stumbled on to this site because it was mentioned in an article I read on yahoo. I realize that I need help before it gets worse. My friends and family love me but they just don't understand why I am not happy with it. They don't understand why its a problem for me. I am 50 lbs over weight and they don't see it or the problem. I came to the site looking for help. Hoping I can find some. Thank you very much. My name is Annie. I live in Connecticut. and I am 34 years old. I have one son he's 13
