Hi and welcome! What I would do is this...go to the upper left hand corner to "Tools" click on Nutrition. This will open up your daily meals tracker. I use it before eating, I input my food items in the breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks menus, this helps to see where you are at in eating too much or not enough. First you change your nutrition goals by clicking on the small icon next to the "add food" lable on the page of the tracker, it is here that you can input your weight, height, if you are pre-diabetic, diabetic or regular eating plan. It will tell you how much of what to eat. Also research online to find a analyzer that when you type in your weight and height it will tell you how many calories it takes just to exist at your current weight, this is without exercise. Then you figure out how much to cut back on calories. For example for me it takes 2451 calories to live daily, without exercise. So, if I want to lose 1 lb every 4 days, I cut back to 1600 calories daily. Why? Because it takes 3500 calories to make 1 pound. So, cutting back 800 calories a day x 4 makes 3200 calories less for your body, which means in 4 days and a half I lose ONE lb!!! Now, you have to count everything you put in your mouth. If it isn't in the main food databank, you can add your own and save it to your favorites. I know it's overwhelming, as a matter of fact I had joined a year before actually coming back and I gave up because it was confusing for me. Please do not do this, it set me back a year that I could have reached my goal weight. Instead, I prolonged it another year!!! Please, if I can continue to help you, add me as a friend and ask me anytime you have a question. SparkPeople is the best and most unique place for achieving your weightloss goals! Hugs

Welcome, you have received good advice so far. I would add start at the beginning. I always go to my Start Page and navigate from there. Start with the basics. This is such a comprehensive site that covers so much that it can be overwhelming it you try to do too much at the beginning. Take it slow and do only what works for you you will expand from there as you are comfortable. Glad you are here.

Welcome:-))

Before you venture any further, consider making a conscious effort to "remove" I CAN'T from your vocabulary!

Don't stress over the non-essentials! Repetition is the' master teacher and "you will gradually learn" to maneuver this site with ease.

Commit to logging in faithfully every day and that will become your anchor to success!!!

Do not loose sight of your unique self and trust in your Inner Wisdom to guide you through this process of becoming a healthier... happier you. Giving up is not a viable option! It is said "If we keep doing what we are doing we will keep getting what we are getting."

Move at a turtle's pace and you will eventually win this race!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Be sure to ask questions if you are lost.
These videos are helpful when you are getting started.

It takes a couple weeks to get used to the site.
But if you track your food, you will learn ways to improve what you eat. I have also found exercise to be vital.

I am very new to this site & am finding it hard to navigate. So I will keep finding my way around & hopefully something will happen. I'm very excited to begin this new journey, but if I can't figure out how to use this site, I know I will get discouraged & just give up. Any suggestions?
