Welcome to SparkPeople Antoniette, Here are My tips to YOU: I suggest you log in everyday. Acquaint yourself with the tools because they are key in helping you get to a healthy weight. I love the articles and they have helped me more than I could ever say.

Have a blast making your page. It is your fingerprint. Change it up & make it your own. Most of us use it as a form of expression and a major source of motivation, really.

Definitely use the Nutrition tracker, there is nothing like seeing what you are eating day after day in terms of your weight and health. The Nutrition tracker will do this for you so give it a chance. Should you ever need support or have any questions, speak up we have more than our share of people who can help you.

I see your enjoying your journey and getting healthier each time you Spark, HiketoHeights

Hi Kathleen and welcome back to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day (If you only drink one now, add to as you are able until you are drinking your 8 cups or more a day), watch your portion control (measure everything in the beginning...guaranteed it will get easier) and walk, dance or do any exercise you enjoy (start with 10 minutes a day or several times a day and add to it as you are able or have time). Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily (guaranteed to work if you use them consistently and honestly). Pick one thing to change...one thing at a time. Don't try to change to many things at once as that can be very overwhelming. Just try to take one step, one minute, one hour, one day, one week at a time. They honestly will all add up to the bigger numbers. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers and increasing your ability to enjoy life. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break...Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals!
If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
Hugs,
Helen

Hi Terika and welcome back to Sparkies. I wish you the best of luck in your weight loss journey. I would like to share with you a few little tricks that have really helped me so far, and hopefully they will help you !!
1. Stick to 3 meals per day - No snacks.
2. Replace everything you drink with water. No juice, no soda, just water.
3. If you feel like a snack, have a glass of water instead to fill you up.
4. Do a minimum of 15 minutes exercise every day - No exceptions.
I have stuck to this regime vigorously since joining SP after Christmas, and the results are excellent. I am already half way towards my goal weight and I fell great. I am also a High Blood Pressure sufferer, so I know what that's all about. Good luck and keep me posted on your results. Kind regards. Anthony.

Hi and welcome to SparkPeople and High Blood Pressure Team where you will find lots of information and loads of support. Just post any questions, comments or suggestions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
SparkPeople is not another diet; it is a positive lifestyle change...
Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
Watch your portion control. Be sure to drink plenty of water (8-8oz glasses daily) and walk. Water and walking will help you on this journey of lowering numbers and weight loss. Start small if that is all you can do or have time to do and add to it as you are able. Even 5-10 minutes several times a day adds up to bigger numbers and will keep you moving. Invest in a good pedometer (about $10) and see how many steps you currently take each day. Before long you will be adding steps just to see how many you can do and how far you can go. WHAT A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! YOU can do this!!!
It's good to meet and have you with us.
Take each day as it comes and enjoy it to the fullest!!!
God bless you in your new adventures.
Hugs,
