Welcome to the Montgomery Co. Spark Team! I've been up and down with weight in the past, and I have only recently started focusing on healthy living after having a couple of years of not caring for my body. The biggest advice I can give you right now is to STOP thinking about this as a diet. That's a dirty word around here. Diets are full of things you CAN'T have. Healthy living is about making CHOICES to eat and do the things that will make you a healthier person. Nobody here tells you that you CAN'T. We are here to tell you that you CAN! You've taken an important step in joining this site. There is a lot here, so don't feel overwhelmed. You don't have to read everything at once.
