Welcome, You have joined a great team. You will find so many tips and lots of support to help you on your journey. We have a number of people who have lost a lot of weight and who are kind enough to share information.

Your reasons to drop the weight are great, getting married and getting healthy but don't let the pressure get to you.

I'll add my 2 cents and what has worked for me.

Track your food, either here on Spark or write it. As the saying goes "You bite it, you write it".
I am a paper and pencil type girl so i journal. I write down my food, exercise and track my moods and hunger level.

Drink water, 8 - 8ozs of water a day, some of us do more but the 64oz is a great start.

Move, do something every day. A little walk, yoga, Wii, anything even starting with 10-15mins a day is good.

Here comes a NO..............NO soda, it's an evil thing even the diet stuff. OK don't kill me, it's a personal opinion.

Plan to loose 1-2 pounds a week. 1 is better, if its more, you may be setting yourself up for failure.

The most important thing is be kind to yourself. We didn't gain this weight over night and it will take time to drop it. If you slip or don't make a goal on time be kind to your self, stop and re-evaluate, ask yourself this question, "are you being realistic" etc.

I wish you the very best on your journey to becoming a healthier you!


No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

Welcome to SP and the Team.

My best advice is change one habit at a time.

If you always do what you always did then you will always get what you always got Anonymous
