Hi, SUN, and welcome emoticon This is a great team - very supportive and caring. So glad you decided to join Spark. The best advice I can offer you is to: 1) Use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully, every single day, and print out the daily report on that page so you can make sure you are getting the proper balance of fats, carbs, and protein. This will keep you honest and accountable for your choices. Checking your report each day is critical - you want to make sure you are getting the right % of nutrients and not just eating empty calories; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually ENJOY doing and then do them 3-4X a week. If you like what you are doing the chances are much better that you will stick with it; 3) Stay active with your Team(s) because this is the place you will get encouragement, motivation, and support - including hugs on those days when things are especially tough! and; 4) Try to have fun with this journey to slimness and better health! It's a given that if you enjoy something you will stick with it over the long run. So, post, share experiences, have a laugh with your Spark Friends. It will make it a lot easier to reach your destination!

One last thought: it isn't important how fast or slowly you lose your weight. This is one area where 'slow and steady wins the race' is more then just some old cliche. Spark teaches you a new lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food. Give yourself the time to do that and you will be able to keep it off in the future.
Good luck and I look forward to sharing the journey with you! emoticon
