Welcome! I hope Sparkpeople will help you achieve all of your goals! I have made some very good friends here and have found that any time you make a post asking for help, you'll get help. This is so important to weight loss and healthy living! You can also learn ways to exercise at home and sneak exercise into your day. Getting more exercise will help you to feel less tired (I know, it doesn't sound like it should work that way, but it does.) There is so much information here, and it's all free! Check in every day and take advantage of all that this site has to offer. You'll be glad you did.
