Hi Bren, welcome to the team from another newbie (less than a week here for me). Don't overwhelm yourself with trying to make too many changes at one time, keep reminding yourself why you are doing this, don't beat yourself up if you slip a bit, and be sure to explore all the great information here (check under the 'healthy lifestyle' tab at the top for a LOT of info) as well as using the message boards to share with other Spark People! I couldn't be happier that I decided to check this site out and give it a try -- I have a long way to go, but I KNOW I can get there with all of the support available here.

Welcome to the team! I'm from Lansing - where are you from?
My best advice is to remind yourself of your goals often - don't lose sight of why you want to be healthy! And decide that purpose is one of the most important things in your day - and let go of everything necessary that falls short.
