!! My name is Angela and I have been on this site since June 2012. Congratulations on taking your first steps to a brand new you and a new weight loss experience where you are supported by en entire community of like-minded people. This website is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues.
And I know exactly what you mean about getting caught up in the moment with friends and stuff. I have the same problem at times. But the new fitness/nutrition tracker allows for you to do more exercise so you can eat more. While this is not a common theme for me to practice, it does make me feel better knowing that the days I eat 2,000 calories are also the days that I burned 1200 and probably needed to eat more to keep my body sane. :-) Stick with it, I am always here for support should you need it!
I recommend reading through the Getting Started Guide at this link: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_started.as
So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome, and Enjoy!
