Being ready to make changes is definitely the first step! Don't try to make too many changes at one time, tho, or you can become overwhelmed and frustrated. I've only been here a week myself, it doesn't take long to get used to the site and the features here, very user friendly... be sure to check out all the good info under the "healthy lifestyle" tab up above, track your foods daily, and come to the message boards for interaction with other members.
