Take time to navigate the site. Daily use of the nutrition and fitness trackers has kept me on track; and support and motivation can be found any time you need it. Small goals are easier to achieve and reaching them will give you the motivation to reach the next one.

Welcome and I would suggest by making small goals for yourself. Post your food daily in the nutrition tracker and see what you're doing calorie wise. Figure out what you should shoot for so you know. Google BMI and Activity Calories. Do the math on both, add them together and subtract 500 so you know your calorie range for the day. Remember, good calories. Start with one thing and cut it out. LIke soda. I had to wean myself down to one a day before I went cold turkey but this is my 5th month soda free. You slowly start making changes and once it becomes a habit, you add something new. Just remember, baby steps. You didn't put the weight on overnight and it won't come off overnight. Just take it day by day and focus on the moment.

SP has great tools and use them. They will only benefit you. Find some teams you're interested in and ask for support and suggestions. You need to find what works for YOU!

You'll find lots of people who will be happy to lend ideas and suggestions. You just have to wade thru them and choose what might be good for you.

Good luck!!

I have always considered myself to be in good shape up to about two years ago. My health started to slip and suddenly found myself weighing 80 lbs. more than my normal weight. I started to realize I have to lose weight at the twenty pound mark, then thirty, then forty..........now I'm on the treadmill of starting over and over, because I continue to fail a week into it. I guess what I'm really concerned about is that I will never be able to start and keep on track, and the health complications only add to the challenge. So, I am looking forward to being a part of a support group, something I've never done before. I'm not quite sure and am wondering how others have started.
