Hi, Tara, and welcome to the mainstream of Spark People. I use the site daily to keep me focused. I also have taken my time here to really, really, really learn that this is NOT a diet but a life-long learning process. Staying slim and healthy is my goal rather than "sticking to a diet" until I reach goal weight. I hope you can really get the Spark program into your life - it helps a lot to move toward health and fitness! Spark ON!
