Take a deep breathe ! Everything is going to be fine. You start out slowly. You take baby steps, literally and figuratively. Why not start by filling out your Spark Nutrition profile. Let the software set a calorie range for you. Then you do your best to stay within that range. Don't go too far over or too far under. Staying in that range will help you to lose. Studies have shown that people who log their food choices lose more weight than those who don't.
Mostly, you're going to need to be patient with yourself and your body. You didn't gain the weight overnight, it's not coming off overnight. there are no quick fixes, no magic pills, no fast way to lose. Slow and easy really does win this race.
So, don't worry, you're going to do just fine. Why not read some of the articles in the Daily Spark ? The Daily Spark has LOTS of great articles on motivation from members and the coaches.
