Hi, Welcome to Spark People. emoticon

You have come to the right place. This is not just about dieting, it is about life style change and finding support from positive people. Check out the Fitness Tracker and Nutrition Tracker features. These are powerful tools to help you get on track and stay on track. Try blogging, too. It is amazing the support you get from others who are struggling with similar issues or who have overcome them.

Jump in, join some teams, and be kind to yourself. Change doesn't happen over night, but it does happen.

Welcome to the new you!

Well, after a couple of months of being on Sparkpeople, I am getting the courage to post something. I have been afraid to post anything. I guess that makes my weight issue more public than I would like it to be. I have not been successful, so perhaps this is the kind of step I need. I am 36, 5'5" and 254 pounds. I need to lose weight before my family history catches up to me. So far I have been able to avoid the Blood pressure medicine, diabetes, and high cholesterol, but I know it is right around the corner if I don't get to a manageable weight.
I am praying that I will be successful this time around. My husband is on the same page with me so hopefully that will help.
