Fast Break goals. Set them! I'm a huge believer in them. For me, getting through those first few weeks with some successes and achievements realized was important.
Being able to see that if I set out to do something, actually do it, and then FEEL (and sometimes SEE on the scale) results, was something that made the endgoal of changing the way I function and permanently losing weight and being healthier possible.

You got this. It's in the bag.

Start out by using all the spark People tools...
Here is a link to some helpful information.

I especially like to join local teams and talk with people in my area who are also on line.
I like the food and exercise trackers and I really like the threads.

Keep on Sparking!
