Welcome to Sparkpeople. Be sure to take advantage of all the great free online sources available here, such as the nutrition and fitness trackers. Also, the online community is great. We are all here to offer support when you need it, or celebrate your successes with you.
Here are some links that will help you navigate the site and get started!
Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.
This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done. You can only dream of tomorrow. The only day you can change is today. What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?
It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT
Hello everyone! I am 34 and have struggled with weight my whole life. I am looking to lose at least 25 pounds. I have been heavier than I am now but I am currently the heaviest I have been in my adult life. I just gained 10 lbs over the holidays! For some reason I feel like I have lost a lot of my healthy habits and motivation that have helped me lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle in the past and am hoping that the Spark community can help me get it back! Lack of consistency paired with late night snacking, stress eating, and a seemingly insatiable sweet tooth are the issues I need to get a grip on. Excuses need to be gone and action needs to start! I just want to feel great, do great, and be great because I believe that we all have it in us and we can all radiate that greatness to others! :)
Looking forward to many healthy exchanges here on Spark! :)
