Start with something small. Look at the steps for the spark diet. Week 1 is very simple, and week 2 isn't much harder.

Or set your own goals, what is one single thing you think you could do, and keep doing? Walking 20 minutes 3 times a week? 10 minutes?

Adding more vegies to your diet?

Drinking more water?

Pick just one thing, do it for a week, then keep doing it and add one more thing. Small changes add up.

Hello and welcome to SP! You will find a lot of things here that can help like the food and exercise trackers: its quite eye opening to see how many calories you are taking in and its very motivating to see how many calories you can burn...all in all it helps keep you on track. I would also suggest you set up your spark page and try to blog each day as it keeps aware of what is going on, can show you what may be a trigger, and lets you vent if you need and by adding some spark buddies, gives them a chance to offer advice and support. We are all on the same journey and its nice to have someone here for you to give you a hand. Hope to be able to do this for you and maybe you can do the same for me too. Good luck!

Hi! I was like that in the beginning. This is what I did.
Week 1 - I made SP recipes during the week for dinner
Week 2 - I started using the nutrition tracker. Made adjustments to keep within my calorie count.
By week 3 I was feeling a little better and I started really using SP.
I didn't start any movement until my second month.
Take it slow. Make 1 change at a time and it will start to snowball.

I agree- why not check out the SparkTeams? You can find people with similar goals, interests, and even people who live in the same state and/or city. it's a great way to find friends, which are a huge part of the SparkPeople support system.

Best of luck! emoticon
