You have come to a great place and it might actually be a boon that you lost some weight and then stopped for a while. Great that you didn't gain any back.
There are good and informative articles here and a very supportive community. Getting active on the site will really help.
What worked for me (check out my page) was finally realizing that this wasn't a diet with a beginning and an end; rather it had to be a lifestyle change. Making small sustainable changes slowly over time helped me to incorporate a new way of living and eating.
Check out the challenges here - they have several and you'll get a daily tip to help you make and stick to healthier habits.
WELCOME TO SPARK!!! 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! *~ Paula *~
