Hi! I am just getting started on Spark. I have quite a bit of weight to lose, but I am striving to lose 50 pounds by April 2014.
I agree with little goals, and taking just one day at a time. Its not over night, and others around you wont mean to..but try to get you to cheat on your diet. My hubby is bad at this. LOL Just keep strong and hang in there! emoticon

Hello!

Yes, a goal is to lose 182lbs is a big task but don't forget that you FINAL goal. Break it down into manageable chunks (maybe 20-30lbs) and focus on those those smaller goals.

Your first goal should be to make yourself believe that YOU CAN DO IT by achieving a smaller goal (maybe losing 10-20lbs). This first order of business to achieve this smaller goal is to improve your nutrition and start incorporating exercise. Take baby steps and eventually you'll be making giant leaps.

If you don't know where to start then I suggest going through the nutrition section of Articles & Videos. You can reach out to me as well.

All the best!

Hi everybody, I am new to all of this and I really don't know where to even start on my weight loss journey. I need to lose 182 pounds and that is mind blowing in itself. My health has declined so much. I could really use the support and motivation of any who are willing.
