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.
