Welcome! You've taken a giant step by coming back to Spark People.
Staying with your daily calorie range, portion controlling your food using a digital kitchen scale, making sure you are drinking enough water, and moving your body every day will get you a lot closer to where you want to be!
Use your Daily Nutrition Tracker @ sparkpeople.com/myspark/nutrition.asp
You're going to want to know how you did staying within your caloric range everyday, and how you can improve. You'll be able to begin to see patterns emerging and how better to feed your body for all you expect it to do when you keep track of everything you eat.
Run the Daily Nutrition Feedback Report each day @ sparkpeople.com/myspark/nutrition_feedba ck_check.asp
You'll be able to see how you met your goals (or went over or under them). The pie charts at the bottom of the page break down your calories by meal and also provide a Carb / Fat / Protein Breakdown which is very helpful in visually getting you to see where you could better tweak what you're eating.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I've always been a little jealous of my little sister because she has a great walking path within a half hour drive of her home. Now I have her beat. Mine is half a mile away. She can't wait to drive up here to walk with me. LOL
