Howdy and welcome to Spark People! Well, when you don't know where to start, it's a good idea to start right where you are at and start very small. Freezing meals is great but if you can't, no problem, just set a small, achievable goal to eat a healthy breakfast and aim for a very moderate lunch. The Spark approach to getting started is very practical: change just one thing in your meals plans in a healthy direction; add just 10 minutes of some sort of exercise a day. After a week of success, add one ore nutritious choice and increase your exercise a bit. Nothing overwhelming. The key is getting some success under your belt to build on and then keeping on with the changes. There is a great Stages and Strategies program to follow, articles to read and the excellent trackers. Plus (and this is my favorite part of the site) the wonderful supportive community. Enjoy and be sure to check out the fun as well and join a Team or two. 1601 days ago
