Hi KellyGaray1,

First off warmest welcome to Spark People. It's going to be a hard journey but if you stay committed even when you fall off get right back on. Log log log, log everything as if you were writing a book about yourself. Food prep is a big key. Troll this site for recipes and plan meals for the week...Tupperware or brown bagging works. It's about 80-90% what you intake and the rest is activity. Try something new whether it be food or activity. In order for your body to change you have to change your mind. I can go on & on about what helped me loose 56lbs, you have to play around w/ what works for your body. Listen if you need an accountability partner let me know. I have a support page on Facebook (link below) if you ever need some daily inspiration, recipes or if you'd like to add some input on what helps you. Stay committed in this journey!!!

loving WHAT you do is much more important that WHAT you do

emoticon to SparkPeople! A couple of things to help you along the way.

- Track everything you eat and do.
- Join teams that interest you and start posting questions and concerns about your journey. There are teams for everything from age groups and book worms to motivational teams.
- Start adding friends and watch how you start motivating each other.

Good luck in this journey to getting healthier! emoticon

Hello! I am struggling to lose my baby weight--30 pounds. Baby is 8 months this week and my goal is to be on my way by her 1st birthday. I struggle with staying motivated. This is my day 1 back on track and I really want to have this confident-motivated feeling still next week.
