emoticon Greetings and emoticon - I'm really glad you've joined us!! Right now is a great time to get active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support- it's also lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together.

Sometimes the best way to start is to just pick a small goal such as drinking 8 glasses of water a day or eating 5 fruits and veggies plus a small exercise goal such as increasing whatever you've been doing by 10%. There's a great article explaining how one or two changes can lead to long-term success - you can read the article at www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?post=one_healt

. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized here instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' and another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I have - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

Let's just say I have been around the diet block a few times. I have 30 pounds to lose from a 5'2" 58 year old female body, and realize that is not so bad, but that factor has made me lazy. This last year I have seen folks with much greater challenges now weigh less than me. Yes, it woke me up.

I have tried all kinds of things and excuses. Pure and simple, I need the attitude to make it happen. Sparkpeople, it looks like you offer all kinds of tactics, diversions, and incorporate any and every diet theory to allow us to be successful.

Here I go! emoticon
