Hello & Welcome to SP! You've come to the right place for all the info, support & encouragement you need to help you reach your goals! I've been around here a little over a year & have had some tremendous changes, so I know SP works! Just take it slow, be patient & forgiving with yourself, you WILL mess up, but try to learn from your mistakes & move on. That's where SP is different from 'diets'-it's not something we go on & off of, it's a lifestyle change, so stay connected here & take advantage of all the resources, esp. the nutrition & fitness trackers-they help me the most by keeping me accountable for my choices.
Getting healthy isn't always easy, but neither is being heavy, but the effort is sooo worth it, and so are YOU!!!
