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. Create your SparkPage and make sure it's set so others can see it! It is the best way for other members to connect with you! 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!
