Hi Valerie, Welcome to Spark! I'm so glad you have friends who got you here. I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. So many of us start our time on Spark with health wake up calls of one kind or another. It's a great place for getting healthier. I'm glad you are here and hope you enjoy using all Spark has to offer.

There are so many great resources here! I recommend starting with the nutrition/food tracker because that is the key element in weight loss for most people. Then, once you're comfortable with tracking your food on a daily basis, start exploring more areas of this site. I still find something new here almost every day. By tracking everything since May 2011 and using the other features here to keep myself focused, I lost 90 pounds and have maintained that loss for almost a year now. It takes a little bit of time, but it is sooooo worth it!

Hi Valerie, and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change! Get familiar with egverything and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. I have added a couple of links to teams I think you may find helpful. Please don't think I am pushy and good luck on your journey!

Hello, my name is Valerie. I live in a small southeast city of Alabama.
I have three children and four grandchildren.
Last year I was diagnoised with lupus and dermatomyositis. My doctor suggested weight
loss and diet change. I am joining sparkpeople because I have heard great things from
former members.

Tomorrow we begin again.
