Here is your Getting Started Guide:
http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_started.asp

These New Member Tutorial Videos are very helpful: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_articles.asp?id=571

Be sure to set up your nutrition tracker and follow the guidelines Sparkpeople gives you. It is important to eat a balanced diet with adequate calories (yes, if you don't eat enough, you will not lose weight). The website will give you a range of calories each day. Eat well while losing weight by eating within that range. Likewise, you should follow the guidelines for carbohydrates, protein, fat, water, fiber, etc.

I try to encourage new members to get active in the SparkPeople community! Join a Spark Team or two that match your interests. You will find it easy to get acquainted with folks on Spark Teams. For instance, you can select a Team of Sparkers in your city, or Sparkers who follow a particular food plan (vegetarians, low carb, etc.), Sparkers with a particular health concern, or Sparkers who share your hobbies. Another option is to set up your SparkPage and start blogging. Some folks use the Community Journals. Post a lot on the message boards, especially if you have successes or challenges. You'll soon find that you're connecting with many nice folks here.

This is a great, positive community! I’m glad you’re with us.

Hi there proud mommy!

First off warmest welcome to Spark People. It's going to be a hard journey but if you stay committed even when you fall off get right back on. Log log log, log everything as if you were writing a book about yourself. Food prep is a big key. Troll sites for recipes and plan meals for the week...Tupperware or brown bagging works. It's about 80-90% what you intake and the rest is activity. Try something new whether it be food or activity. In order for your body to change you have to change your mind. I can go on & on about what helped me loose 56lbs, you have to play around w/ what works for your body. Listen if you need an accountability partner let me know. I have a support page on Facebook (link below) if you ever need some daily inspiration, recipes or if you'd like to add some input on what helps you. Stay committed in this journey!!!

Best,

Dee

Hello. I just gave birth to my second child and i'm looking to get back in shape and down to my pre-baby weight or better and become super fit NOT just skinny. I'm looking to make friends and share stories with other moms trying to lose baby weight so we can motivate each other and understand the struggles we are experiencing after having babies. If your a mommy trying to lose baby weight please FRIEND me! Thanks and wishing everyone success in their weight goal journey!
