Hi Tammy,

Welcome aboard. If this place works for you as well as it has already worked for me then you will love it here.

I am around and willing to help - just let us know if I can.

In the meantime have fun here.

Cheers

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

Great fast break goals! I also suggest that you measure all of your servings. We wildly underestimate them!

emoticon to SparkPeople! Make sure you track everything you eat and do to see what's going on. Add plenty of Spark Friends to encourage you along the way. And join teams that interest you enough to stay active on the site. When I'm more active on the site, I'm more motivated to move my body throughout the day. Always remember, you didn't gain the weight overnight, so don't get discouraged if you don't lose a lot at once. Good luck in your journey!

hello, my name is Tammy. I weigh 330 pounds. I have been obese since I was a teenager. I am tired of the way I look. I am tired of carrying around this excess weight. I have medical problems that interferes with my weight and all my Dr.'s say I need to lose weight. Its like I don't already know that. I look in the mirror and I don't like what I see. I need to change my lifestyle habits to form healthy habits. I need to lose 175 pounds to meet my goal weight. I am starting off with small changes such as my fast break goals which are: 1. drink eight - 8 ounce glasses of water daily. 2. ten - fifteen minutes everyday of exercise. and 3. get 8 hours of sleep every night.
