You'll be fine! It's a great lifestyle. It can be a bit scary at first to step away from our "conventional wisdom" in nutrition that's been promoted to us for so long. But this is a healthy lifestyle, and you'll see its benefits once you make it through the transition.
We're all here to help and support you through that change. We've been there! Lean on us and just jump in!
Keep us posted =D

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae

Welcome!! Don't worry about making a mistake. Every day is a new start and a chance to improve. When you mess up just get right back on plan as soon as possible. It's a way of life, not a sprint.

I'm new to Smart Carbing. I joined SparkPeople in May 2011 but really just looking around and reading articles etc. I think I am finally ready to commit to a new lifestyle. But I have to say, I am afraid. I don't know if I'm more afraid of failing or of succeeding. I am going to put all that aside and jump in.
