You've come to the right place. I can tell you, from experience, that this lifestyle change WORKS!!!! Yes, it's something that you'll be doing the rest of your life, but it's a small price to pay, to get healthy and stay there! Besides, once your body gets use to what you're doing, which is rearranging it, you'll feel so empowered, satisfied, euphoric, etc. It's a win, win situation!
I suggest you start tracking first. That's what you eat and all your exercising. Don't forget to track those little taste tests you do, when you're sampling your cooking, to make sure you want to serve it to the family, as well as the little love bites that your kids give you. Watch your beverages, as there's a lot of hidden sugars and caffeine, which isn't good at all. The beverage that is the most healthy is, you already know this, WATER!!!! When I started drinking water, I wondered how in the world could I get so much in me, but I did, and now I can't get enough of it. Remember, if you get to the point that you're thirsty, your body is already dehydrated!
There are so many tools here to help you, but I believe the GREATEST TOOL HERE IS...... all the wonderful ladies and gentlemen, who help you out. They're your personal cheerleaders!!! We'll all be with you, as we help you reach your GOAL and BEYOND!!! Yes, beyond!!! We're all in!!!
If you need anything, just HOLLER, at me, and I'll do all I can to give you a hand up!!!

JULIABANNISTER YOU SAID. Many health issues that can be corrected if I take better care of myself with diet and exercise.
Health issues are CONTROLLED, they are NOT CORRECTED in most experiences.
if you take better care of yourself with better food choices in moderation and combine it with consistent exercise you will have a healthier lifestyle and it is so worth the effort.
That is what has happened to me with Spark I have been taken off medications for Type 2 diabetes, High Blood Pressure and cholesterol and the result was 50 pounds lost over time. Take care Pat in Maine.

Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.
