I hoping things will get easier, how was your experience at the beginning.? Do you try to stick to suggested meal plan, or you substitute?
Slow but sure

Thanks, for the support, I'm spending a large amount of time adding and substituting food items, I don't always have the time to do this, this last days, I had left a little of my activities to go inside spark people world and learn how to do it well.
Slow but sure

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 *~

I would like to say that I'm still trying to work on my mind. And make her stop craving for carbohydrate and sweets. And to stop trying to relax or reduce stress level, anxieties with food. I will need a lot of motivation to reach my goal
