This is my 2nd time of being on Spark People ... I had met my goal weight and then everything went south .. Everything was in my way .. sick hubby; sick me ... etc. I have gained just about all that weight back .. I have made the right decision by coming back. I'm ready to lose this FAT
HI! You have come to the right place for losing weight, bad habits and attitude and gaining confidence and a heaothier life. For myself, I log in every morning and spin my wheel - yea! just got some free points. I keep track of what I eat on the nutrition tracker and use to exercise tracker as well. I have an Ipod so I use the free apps which are available when I am away from home or travelling. I love reading the blog of the day - so inspirational - and always check out the recipe of the day for great ideas for dinner. At night I log on after dinner and work on getting points on my trackers, read other members posts, comment on them, and do my SparkCoach for the day. This is the time of day that I eat my extra calories mindlesslly so because it is hard to eat and type it saves me losing control. I joined two years ago and never took it seriously so I didn't lose. Now I realize I have to put an effort into it and I trying to lose 40 pounds. But I did lose 15 pounds at the time and have kept it off. Looking forward to your updates and if you ever need help when you lose momentum (we all do) use the message boards and I'll be looking for you!

Welcome! There is so much on this site, you're going to be overwhelmed at first, but stick with it and don't try to take it all in at once. It's worth it. Good luck. PS: You might want to leave to dessert section of the SparkRecipes for last as you explore. LOL

Welcome to this site. I am so proud that you drop 75 pounds. How did you do this all by yourself. I am still learning that this is a way of life for me. And also taking one step at a time day by day. I am 61 year old and it has not been easy for me. I thank God that I have this site to keep me going. This site gives you a lot of info. That will guide you through those Plato.
