emoticon and emoticon to a great team. We are glad you joined us. I hope to share information to help get you started.

Take time to look through this awesome site and begin to use the tools available. I find the nutrition & fitness tracker valuable tools. Track every morsel you eat and count the minutes you exercise even "just walking". Any motion counts.

Read the wealth of materials available as they give you wonderful ideas of easy changes you can make.

Build fruits & veggies into your diet. Eat 3 meals a day as well as 1-2 snacks. Keep the snacks healthy, not "junk" foods. They are a lot of empty cals. Drink lots of water as this will help flush your system & give you a fuller feeling thus decreasing the hunger sensation. Do not attempt to eat LESS than 1200cals/day as your brain is told you are starving your body so it retains carbs & fats for the future; thus weight gain. Set up your BMI to get your calorie range and try to stay within it.

Post often. Ask questions and we will help you find the answers. Join in on the fun, challenges & conversations. You just might be able to help others with their dilemmas. Try getting as many SparkPoint as you can. Reason; this leads you to a lot of fantastic information. Most of all, have fun with us.

Best wishes to you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.



Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Hi, I'm 45, live in St.Cloud, and have hypothyroid disease as well as having had multiple back surgeries resulting in full fusion of the lumbar spine and neuropathy in my left leg that makes it very difficult for me to excercise- even walking is difficult, because of my limp. I do it anyway, but so many options have been cut off for me.
I have about 50lbs to lose, and I hope to, now that my thyroid treatment is going to resume after 2 1/2 years off the medication (no insurance), and with me paying more attention to my diet.
I seldom get hungry and don't even eat a thousand calories a day, but the weight piles on with this diesease, no matter how careful I've been.
Best of luck to you all,
Marcia (MoonliteSonata)
