Welcome, JENNGUREL ! Spark People is a great place to find the tools, information and community support that you need to achieve your goals. I would suggest that you write down your reasons for wanting to lose the weight -- like not being afraid to look in a mirror, feeling great about yourself in the bedroom, being able to keep up with the kids, etc., and keep it where you see it at least once a day. Then just take one day at a time, don't try to change everything all at once, and remember that slow progress is still progress! If you need help getting around the site, don't be afraid to ask -- it seems a bit confusing at first, but after a while it all kind of comes together... we are here for you!

Well first let me start by saying I'm so happy I found this site. It will take some getting used to but I think I will get through it! So far I have had one set back..when it's my husband's days off I fall off the wagon...very time! Is it bad that I use those 2 days as rest days and allow myself some treats? Keeping in mind though, I don't want to ruin the Orkney I have done the rest of the week! I hope I will be able to stick to this and get a handle on those weight/ fitness thing. Being accountable to the food tracker already has me wanting to make good choices..who wants to write that they had a peanut buster parfait for supper! ( I didn't do that by the way). I have 3 huge motivators in my life...my husband.... I want to feel good enough about myself so that we can get some romance back. And my 2 kids. One is 3 and the other is 4 months. I want to be aable to show them healthy habits as well as be able to keep up with them. There you have it. That is me....let's get moving and get healthy together!!!!
