Thank you so much for your replies:)
I think I have mostly figured out the food tracker and it's pretty awesome.
Need to get groceries today and being able to copy the list was cool.
I have high cholesterol and blood pressure so love how it implements that into the food plan.
This site truly looks like a gift from God for me.
I'm low confidence when it comes to weight loss so the structure, encouragement and accountability will be so helpful and instrumental in learning and believing in myself.
I do have a bunch to explore so may be calling on you for direction.
So far, so good!!

Hi Rainbow and welcome to the team and Spark! emoticon Here is my best advice - not complicated and it works: 1) Use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully, every single day, and check 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. Remember, it is possible to stay within your calorie range eating "junk" but that isn't going to promote weight loss and it certainly won't maintain it in the long run emoticon ; 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 emoticon emoticon ; 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! emoticon 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! emoticon

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 emoticon . Spark teaches you a new lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food emoticon .
