THIS WORKS. WENT ON WEEKS CRUISE DID NOT GAIN A POUND.

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

emoticon Hi and emoticon to the team. Glad to have you join us.

SparkPeople recommends making one small change at a time and letting it become a new, healthy habit. One easy change to begin with could be trying to increase your water intake. As you work on that new habit also log in your food and drink intake, not making changes to it but just to analyze after a week or two what your old habits are that need to be changed, like eating too large of a portion. Gradually add in some exercise and you will be well on your way to success.

As you stated, the site is very large and it will take some getting used to it. Take your time, explore, learn and enjoy. emoticon

I agree with all the other recommendations. Pick a few healthy changes like tracking everything you eat or drinking 8 glasses of water, or exercising (even just walking) for 10 minutes a day. When you've mastered your changes, add 1 or 2 more. This makes it much less overwhelming & very do-able. Congrats on the decision you've made to become healthy!

I would start by logging everything you eat and do a little exercise suited to you.

Get acquainted with the Spark Website. The tools here are very helpful. Use your trackers for food and fitness. Check out the videos on the Fitness page. Coach Nicole has several very good videos to help you get started if you aren't currently exercising. Make friends with other SparkPeople to help with accountability. Join challenges. I love SparkPeople!
