You've already taken the first step by recognizing what you want to do. Just use baby steps, and enjoy every accomplishment along the way, no matter how small!!

I think just joining Spark is a great place to start!

Stick to this site, make friends, and you'll be on your way before you even know what happened!

Hi and welcome to the team. I agree just start slow. I started out walking sometimes it was only a block but I walked everyday. The menus on the food tracker are also a great idea. They help to figure out what a healthy diet is. I wish you luck with your weight loss journey.

Hi and welcome to the Team! I agree, start out slow. Try a few exercise routines per week that they have on the site. There are many that are 5 minutes. Check out the nutrition menu to see what they have. Good luck on your weight loss journey. We are all here to support and keep you motivated.

Hi there...feeling yucky, huh? Spark is a great place to get help. But it can be overwhelming, there is so much to read, track and enjoy. Let it be a tool for you! My suggestion would be to just start slow. Pick a couple things to work on for a week. Maybe increase your water intake to 8 glasses a day, or maybe quit eating after 7 o'clock at night, or maybe do some exercises during commercials. Just a couple "baby steps" to get you rollin. As u progress you can track your food and your exercise to help you know your strengths and weaknesses.
We can do this!!!!!
