Important - take small steps 1st. Track your food - everything - no excuses. It really makes a huge difference. Add activity - there are great tips and video on SP. Go for a walk. It's a great way to clear your mind too!
Check out the teams and challenges.
Remember don't try too much at one time because it can get overwhelming.
Focus and . . . Good luck on this new journey!
On my way to a healthier life.

My name is Corine and my goal is to get down to my pre-baby weight by December 27th!! I have had a bumpy start my first couple of weeks on SparkPeople. I find myself committed and doing good and then the littlest thing will throw me off for a 3 or 4 days and I find myself starting over. Any tips to stay motivated not get off track? Thanks!!
