Welcome - glad you have joined us

Do take time to participate on all the groups you have joined.

I would recommend you using the nutrition tracker and the fitness tracker which is located on the left hand side of your screen - using them daily will definitely help - but when you have time please take time to look over all that is available here as there is a large number of great tools that help.

I'm trying this for the third time. I do an hour of cardio each day, strength training twice a week and document most of what I eat. I'm doing great.

I can't seem to navigate the busy busy busy jam packed trainwreck that is the sparkpeople interface. My fitness pal...clean and simple....easy.....intuitive. Takes about 10 minutes and everything makes sense. I want to do this because my wife uses it...if I can just figure out where the fundamental stuff is located amidst the 1 billion things I don't need. :/ I'm going to really try.
