***Just wanted to take a moment and welcome you to Sparkpeople. Joining Sparkpeople is on of the best decisions I have made and I know you will love it as well.

***Try joining a spark team. The support and motivation that belonging to a team will help you stay on track. This can be found under “Community”.

***Try using the nutritional tracker. It really makes it easier to stay within your daily nutritional goals. This can be found under “My Trackers”.

***Read the many success stories to help you stay focused and motivated. This can be found under “Community”.

SparkPeople is a wonderful resource, you are going to be so glad you joined!!

My best advice would be to just get involved on the site, join a team, start tracking your meals and daily fitness activities.

Set some small achievable goals that you can reach short term, checking off a goal is a great motivator.

Best of luck on your journey, have a blast, you can do this!!!!

Hello everyone. First of all I choose not to call any this a diet, but I prefer to say I'm promoting a healthier lifestyle. I'm no stranger to this but it takes support from others and you have to learn to be creative. I lost 32 lbs and gained it all back plus when I became pregnant. I can say I'm finally motivated again and I have my husband on this journey this time around.
