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.
You have all the weapons you need. Now Fight!!

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!!
Someone even busier than you is working out right now!

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
