JBIRDIEJ, I am so happy for you. Live the Sparkpeople life (eat less, move more) and you will achieve great things. Immerse yourself in this website. Read the articles, use the tools (Nutrition Tracker, Fitness Tracker, etc.) and gradually your mindset will completely transform. When your mind is set, there is no limit to your accomplishments. I know you can do this.
Eliminate "I will try". Replace with "I will".
You are now ready to succeed.
