Hello and to SparkPeople!! This has been one of the best places I've ever been for weight loss, goal setting and support. The people on the site are absolutely FANTASTIC! You won't find anywhere else as positive and supportive.
My advice to you -
1. Use the nutrition tracker! It is an invaluable tool to you! 2. Use your blog to share your day, vent frustrations, ask for advice or just post "fun stuff"! It's a great way to interact with other Sparkers! 3. Get involved with message boards and teams! My favorite SparkTeam is (((( Sending SKINNY Vibes! )))) http://teams.sparkpeople.com/skinnyvibes 4. Don't be too hard on yourself! If you slip up or have a bad day, remember that it's not about being perfect, it's about learning to live a new LIFE!
Remember, at SparkPeople, you're never alone! Feel free to visit my SparkPage, add me as a friend or join any of my teams!
Every journey begins with the first step and you have made a great first step by joining Spark. You are going to love it here!! I highly recommend joining a few teams to meet some of our members to share ideas and get added support when you need it. Good luck in reaching your goal!!
