WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.
A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

If it was genuinely a physiological hunger pang, I would eat, if it was a head hunger pang then I'd try to find something else to do.

First off And congrats on deciding to make these changes. I know if I have a hunger pain I'll normally grab a cheese stick. If it fits into your calories a small snack can be really helpful. Water is also a great cure. So I would give that a try. Best of Luck!

I have always hated diets and people on them all they seem to talk about is calories and food and tell you you really should try it.
So I have finally decided to make some changes, stop the snacking. Stop skipping meals in the daily buzz (then eating at the wrong times)
My question though when you first started and felt pangs did you find a good way to overcome them?
