My best advice is to treat your plan as a lifestyle change. I know you hear this a lot, but I think that has made the differnce for me. My plan includes an eating plan that I think I can live with forever. It isn' just a diet.

Hi Jen and WELCOME!!! Not sure how much you need to lose but be sure you are eating ENOUGH. Have you put all your information into spark and thats what they are telling you your calories should be? if so, thats wonderful!! take a week to weigh and measure EVERYTHING..sometimes if you eye it you over or under estimate!!
4 pounds is GREAT...you should aim for 1-2 pounds a week for healthy loss.
Please let me know if i can be of any help!!

it sounds like you're off to a great start! load your day up with fruits and veggies and clean proteins. make sure you read your nutrition labels and know what to look for in the ingredients list. if you have any questions, feel free to ask! we're all here to help and support each other.
