Congratulations on your previous accomplishments. Both of those are difficult to overcome and you did it. With the same determination you can bring yourself along on this journey of fitness.
This is a great site. The tools and resources are so helpful and easy to use. I have found the trackers, especially the nutrition, to be my greatest ally. The trackers hold me accountable for my choices. I have found myself making better decisions about my nutrition, also because of the tracker.
The team is here to offer support and encouragement along the journey. Since we are all on the same trek we can do this together.
Congrats on quitting smoking!!! It took me 20 yrs to do it! This is a great site...welcome and just start looking around. There are some great SparkTeams, and the motivation section really helps when you're thinking about chucking it all and going for that whole pizza!! Just remember..."Muscle weighs more than fat!" And slow and steady wins the race!! Baby steps!! Good luck and have fun on your journey to better health!!
Slow and Steady wins the race!!

I have been serious walking for a week and watching my diet. I ate and drank myself into my condition over my 52 years. I quit smoking years ago and gave up the alcohol 2 years in November. I also had a major depressive episode, but I am now on the mend, I don't know how I managed to stumble upon this great site, but it sure is inspiring and seems like a great online community. Keep up the great work everyone! I'm glad to be a member.
