You have come to the right place. This is not just about dieting, it is about life style change and finding support from positive people. Check out the Fitness Tracker and Nutrition Tracker features. These are powerful tools to help you get on track and stay on track. Try blogging, too. It is amazing the support you get from others who are struggling with similar issues or who have overcome them.
Jump in, join some teams, and be kind to yourself. Change doesn't happen over night, but it does happen.
Hey, Jessi! Welcome to Spark People! I've been here over a year and have lost 60 pounds. I want to make this time last for the rest of my life. I like to translate the word "motivation" into "mobilization". that way, instead of being a mysterious and hard to maintain magic substance, it is a practical matter of STARTING TO MOVE. So I was sold on Spark Guy's 10 Minute Exercise concept - start somewhere! I also started off with gradual changes to get the whole concept of lifestyle change (instead of "diet") embedded in my mind. For accountability, use a Team - or two, or three - and a couple of Challenges. And blog! Make sure you also read other members' blogs and reply with encouragement and support, cuz that will help you even more than it helps them. Get your Spark ON! 1376 days ago
