Don the SparkCoach. I just started yesterday, listing motivation as an area to focus on. I think it is going to help.

Some say that the first step in solving a problem is recognizing that there IS a problem and the second is to define the problem. You have made the first step and are working on step two as you have identified that you will need support. I strongly advocate keeping it simple and also taking and RECOGNIZING small steps. Even the longest trip starts with the first step.

In other words; don't try to change EVERYTHING at one time.
If small steps are what you can accomplish; it's something.

Keep moving forward toward your healthy journey, and you'll be making better (and more) great choices as time progresses

Yup, support and a plan. Good advice I was given was to only make simple choices you can keep longterm. Helped keep me from making things overly complex.

You can't do it until your commited right? I don't know if I'm any more depressed about my weight now than I ever have been but I really took a good look at myself in the mirror today. It felt like rock bottom. Once again, I couldn't make myself leave the house to go to the store. I took a picture. I need to make it happen. I will need support.
