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.
