Hi Heather, welcome to Spark People. I recall the day I was walking up to an entrance and caught a glimpse of my reflection in the glass doors. I did not like what I saw and I wanted to be skinny, no not just skinny but healthy. That was my motivation to start my journey.
One thing that helped me most in those early days was to create a list as to the reasons as to why I wanted to lose weight via eating healthier and exercising more. Then Keeping that list where I'd see it everyday. You have to want it, really want it to make those changes stick.
I hope you find want you need for support and encouragement here on Spark People, it is an awesome community. Best wishes to you.
