Hi and congratulations on beginning your Spark journey!
There's so much here to help you along the way and excellent advice to setting and achieving healthy goals. With the thousands and thousands of fellow Sparkers you will always find someone you can connect with. I am always amazed how many lives have been changed for the better through the use of SparkPeople.
If you have not already done so, I suggest that you check out the videos in the "Healthy Lifestyle" section. Scroll down for the site orientation videos.
That should point you in the right direction. I find that if you just start looking around Spark, you will quickly learn about the wonderful tools available for your use. After being a Sparker since 2007, I still find something new and very useful.

Hello everyone! I've just joined Spark People and love reading all your posts. So, I'm getting married in a mere 66 days. I'm hoping to drop 6kg's before then, doing it the healthy way of course. My main reason for dropping the weight, is simply that I refuse to be a fat bride.
I've always been a little chunky growing up. During high school, my weight fluctuated from 66kg to a whopping 75kg for my small frame. I never quite managed to drop my weight for big events in my life. I always made the effort, but ended up being overweight and unhappy with my appearance for my matric ball, for my first formal dance at university - and even for my 25th birthday. Luckily, I've managed to drop 15kg during the past two years by paying more attention to my health - and now have the last milestone, only 6kg, left to go.
I owe it to myself to persist this one time, at the very least. I want to start fresh and be a beautiful, blushing bride - radiating confidence and happiness.
Please share your stories with me. How do you stay motivated? How do you keep going and keep doing the right thing? What are your reasons to keep going? Would love to hear from you all!
