While it's great to have the support of a group, you really can do this on your own. If you feel out of sorts and don't know what to do, post a question in one of the forums. The Spark Community is not only helpful, but supportive too.
Where to start ? You start with some simple changes. Don't try to do everything at once or you will end up frustrated. Set some simple goals. Example, if you're not used to eating 6-9 servings of fresh fruit and veggies, set a goal to eat 2-3 servings each day for one week. if you're not used to regular exercise, set a goal to take a 30 minute walk each day for one week. If you're not used to drinking 8 glasses of water, set a goal to drink 2-4 glasses each day for one week. Once you've achieved these goals, then you set new goals.
And that's how good health starts. It starts by eating your veggies, drinking your water and taking a daily walk. There really are members who lost 100+ pounds just by walking and watching what they ate.
Start slowly, take baby steps literally and figuratively.
