I want to congratulate you on making this journey. I began my own journey a few years ago and though my pace has been slow I have lost over 100 pounds! You can have success too!
This is a great place to get healthy! There are so many tools, resources, and encouraging people to help you on your journey to "Health & Fitness". Be sure to poke around the site and try the nutrition and fitness trackers, Spark Recipes, Daily Spark, health articles, and secrets.
Joining a team will help you meet like-minded people that share similar life situations or goals. You can join mine to start. I share many helpful tips, recipes and insights from my own journey so you too can benefit. The DAILY CHAT section has lots of helps.
Hi and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change! I see you have a lot of knows but I see no yeses. Get familiar with everything here and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. I have added some links to teams I think will help you on your way. Please don't think i'm pushy and good luck on your journey

No "starting tomorrow," or "waiting until after the holiday/birthday/weekend/day that ends in y." No feeling sorry for myself or deprived. No excuses that I can't exercise because I'm in a wheelchair or eat healthy foods because I have Crohn's or blaming the overeating on asthma medications. No claiming confusion because of all the contradictory health articles and diets. No saying I have to have a certain kind of food in my kitchen before I start, no saying I can't afford healthy foods. No buying and taking weird supplements looking for a miracle. No saying it's too late because I'm over 50. No saying food relaxes me so I can sleep. No getting take-out because I don't have the energy to cook. No saying it's ok to make cookies/cakes/fried something because I will only eat a little.
