Hi
I'm new to spark people as well. What I've learned over the last couple of days is tracking the food and amount of calories is surprising. I can see very quickly where I need to cut down. I'm beginning to believe the tracking of the food is essential to the success of this program. Good luck.

emoticonemoticonemoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticonemoticonemoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

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!

This is a great link to investigating and getting the correct information on spark people
But my favorite article is about small changes done consistently.
So follow this link to my favorite page.

Just do the tracking, do the exercise and do it kindly.

I have a few health issues that eventually lead to weight loss (maybe it's just an excuse). Anyhow, I have gained 35lbs over two years. I have tried Simple Diet, which was successful, but I got lazy and stopped doing it.

I decided to start weight management again and my doctor recommended Sparkpeople. I am hoping that I can reach my weight goal by December this year, so that I can be more active for myself and my family. I have 15, 13, and 3 years old BOYS. I want to fit into my old clothe...

Please do give me any advise to get me going

Thanks
