January 9, 2010
Day 1 - I'm guessing at my weight of 385. I don't have a scale that will weigh me. I'll have to update this when I get weighed at my next medical appointment. I'm at my heaviest ever. I have over 200 pounds to lose, and so I know this is going to take a long time. I'm in it for the long haul.

    Welcome! You can do this. It's just one good choice at a time. My best advice is to making logging on to SP the first thing you do every morning. Try to accumulate as many SparkPoints as you can every morning. It seems silly - you don't really 'get' anything for the points, just a picture of a prettier trophy. But what it will do is get you really involved in every aspect of the site, and help keep you motivated.

    I also highly recommend seeking out the SparkPages and blogs of people who have lost a significant amount of weight. When I started, I needed to lose at least 160 lb (not really sure of the best weight for me - I've always been overweight as an adult). That seemed absolutely unimaginable to me. But I started reading more and more blogs by people who had lost 100+ pounds - with some of them, I went back and read their blogs from the beginning. (One of my favorite is BOTZZZ - he's already lost over 200 lb, and is still going strong.) And now I absolutely can envision losing all this weight. I've lost 42 lb since Oct. 14th, and fully expect to be at goal by then end of 2010.

    I wish you the best of luck on your journey. You CAN do this!!
