Hope is the high; dread is the low; life is the stuff in between! -- Medium
"There is no such thing as destiny, only different choices. Some choices are easy. Some aren't. Those are the important one; the ones that define us as people." Quote from the movie 23. Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.’” (C.S. Lewis) Inspire others by your example.

Welcome to the team Linda! This is a great team and the website is so good and totally free! What more could you ask for? There are some great articles on Spark regarding how to set goals and to achieve them. That's how I actually learned how to set a goal. If you need any help just ask or sparkmail any of us. That's what we are here for. Good luck on your healthy lifestyle changes.

Linda! You have come to the right place! Starting exercise slowly is a very good plan! Using the Nutrition Tracker to track what you eat will also be a huge help. Its what did it for me. When I realized how many calories were in what I was eating, it was a real eye opener even though I thought I was eating healthy vegetarian. Two huge tips: Do NOT buy any junk food!! Have only healthy things in your home to eat. Get away from highly processed quick fix meals. Discover the wonderful world of fresh produce, you never know what fruits and veggies you may like..Spark People is a wonderful site and you will meet great helpful people who are very supportive! Wishing you all the best in your weight loss journey,
