Hi!! I must say this website is almost overwhelming so I will probably be on every board asking questions. When I first clicked on Sparkpeople it actually showed that I was already a member...I went to my info and when I saw that I was about the same weight with the same goal I had in my mind I could have cried...it showed that I had originally joined almost 3 years ago. At first I felt totally defeated before I even started but then I realized it was that kind of thinking ( and quitting - I might add) that was the reason I was still overweight and so unhappy. I'm usually very upbeat and love to laugh and to make other people laugh..except when I think about my weight. So, since it is about 9:00 pm on a Sunday night I will put a little bit of my information and goals that I guess I should start with...Any suggestions on certain boards, articles, etc that you think would be helpful would be greatly appreciated..

Favorite Quote / Bible Verse - But God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and love, and a sound mind 2Timothy 1:7
I will drink at least 8 8 oz glasses of water each day this week
I will track my food - This will really take some getting used to. I can tell I will need to measure it instead of guessing and since my husband does not like frozen meals alot I will have to learn to enter my recipe / ingredients for an accurate calorie count. Cooking is not one of my strong points so I will have to find easy recipes.
Sorry intro is so long ...I look forward to making friends and learning from all of you while I am on this journey :-)
