COMFYGLAMDIVA has you covered!

Take it in baby steps. Make one or two small changes each day that you can live with permanently.

I had good luck starting about increasing my activity first. I logged all of my food... good bad and ugly... while increasing my activity each day. Then I took a good hard look at my eating habits and started making small changes each day.

Walking helps me. In addition to whatever workout I have planned, I try to get two walking breaks in at work.

Take it slow, find what works for you! Never ever give up!

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
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!

Hi! I haven't been on too long either. Still trying to figure out how to find and add friends. Good luck!

After counting my blessings, the extra pounds don't seem that important. I can do this.
