Congratulations on re-committing to a healthy lifestyle. We all have to "start over" ocassionally.
But can I make one friendly suggestion?
If you read the Spark People material, they suggestion that you not try to make too many changes all at the same time. Take "baby steps" to your long-term lifestyle goals. Just pick one or two to focus on during the first week or two. Once you have conquered those changes and incorporated them into your usual habits, tackle one or two more changes. You'll be more likely to stick with the changes that way.
If you make a lot of changes at once, you are more likely to feel deprived and/or unhappy with your new lifestyle -- and not stick with them. Going a little slower in the beginning may give you the best chance of getting where you want to be in the long run.
Good luck to you!
