emoticon emoticon Let me count the ways! I am starting my 5th year. I've lost 70 lbs. reached my goal and have gone from barely making it around one block to very brisk 3 mi. walks almost every day.
I tracked my calories, learned a TON from the Clean Eating teams about how to eat power foods and get the most for my calorie buck.
This is my only social site, I don't do my face LOL so I have made many SP friends. Some I have met in real life for walks and baseball. One even taught me to dive into a pool! At age 60!
I could go on all day. emoticon

Welcome to the team. I have been on Spark People for about 8 months. I have lost over 30 lbs. This site has helped me to realize what I was doing wrong and what I was doing right. I view the nutrition tracker as my greatest ally. I make sure that I track what I eat so that I will stay within my caloric intake range. I have learned so much and what I knew before has been reinforced. The tools and resources are so helpful.
Some of my best advice would be to remember that though weight loss is an individual activity (no one can do it for you) the support and encouragement you will get from team members will be very helpful. We are all on the same journey. Doing it together, along with any personal support you get from family and friends, will make the journey just that much easier.

Good Luck.
