I want to congratulate you on making this journey. I began my own journey a few years ago and though my pace has been slow I have lost 100 pounds! (Pictures on my blog linked below). You can have success too!
This is a great place to get healthy! There are so many tools, resources, and encouraging people to help you on your journey to "Health & Fitness". Be sure to poke around the site and try the nutrition and fitness trackers, Spark Recipes, Daily Spark, health articles, and secrets.
Joining a team will help you meet like-minded people that share similar life situations or goals. Be sure to read member blogs as there is a wealth of information there. You can start with one of mine:
I have never had a weight problem, but in the last three years I have gained 25 pounds! What's up with that? I turned 40, so maybe that has something to do with it. Anyway, I have never had to diet, so I don't know how to start. I could really use some support and some tips.
