As you just said: "take baby steps"! I am famous for telling myself and others, that weight loss takes "many baby steps and bunny hops"!! There is no reason for you to not be a successful loser- over-whelming site and all! Don't forget: remember to focus on one thing at a time!

HAPPY SPARKING!!

Thank you so much. You are right, trying to do everything at once is not a good idea. I'll try to take little steps.

Hi Jo and welcome. I agree that it's best to focus on one thing until you get a hang of that. When I try to conquer too many things at once I just want to quit. Best of luck.

Hi there and welcome. Spark People is huge! Maybe you need to narrow your focus as you get started. I would suggest you make your Spark page first. It helped me feel ownership and get in touch with my goals etc. Or just use the tracker. Just do one thing until you are comfortable, then add one more thing.
You can do this. the site will help you tremendously.
Let me know how it goes!

Hello everyone, my name is Jo and I am overwhelmed by the amount of useful information in SparkPeople. I joined several weeks ago and I did not come back until today. I really need to lose weight and I feel that this website can help me. I have ADHD and I'm aware that it will be a struggle for me to be consistent but I'll do my best.
