Welcome, BROWNEYES511 -- Spark People has lots of tools, information and community support to help you achieve your goals, so you've taken a great first step by coming here. There are "challenges" you can join to help keep you motivated (check under the "community" tab above), and many great articles that will give you ideas for making healthy changes to your lifestyle. Take one day at a time and don't try to change everything all at once -- and if you have questions or difficulty with getting around the site, don't be afraid to ask!
