Thank you! Weight loss is largely about the food, you say. That's what a guy I know, told me too. I used to be able to just exercise and lose but not anymore. I have already started using the tracker, and it is so cool! Cant wait to see if it helps me out.

WELCOME TO SPARK!!! 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. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. 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.
3. 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! *~ Paula *~

Losing the weight is largely about the food... awareness and accountability.
Enjoy the tools here- the food and fitness trackers are great- and be sure to get involved in the community as much as you have time for. A great first step is setting up your own page so that people can interact with you.
I'm not new to weight loss attempts. I just thought I would try this out for motivation. A couple years ago I lost 20 lbs but it slowly came back. I have set a goal now to lose 37. I have been exercising regularly for the past 6 weeks and have only lost 3 lbs. I feel I need to really track the food I eat and go from there to figure out what's going on. Good luck to everyone!
