Yes I think it is a great community and everyone strives to be healthy. I know what how great exercise is for me. Thank you for the offers of help. I may take you up on that offer. Tracking already helped me see my eating patterns. I have a sweet tooth for sure. Yes I still have a lot to learn about tracking.

Welcome to Sparkpeople!

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.

Be sure to read member blogs as there is a wealth of information there. You can start with one of mine:

I went from 60 to 90 kgs. over 18 month period. Also from size 12 to 18. I have had a number of illnesses and on medication which has an effect of weight gain. I really want to have more energy and return to work. I hope to discipline myself, to visit each day and I appreciate the help very much.
