You've found a place to help with the weight loss -- although we're a lot more comfortable calling it a lifestyle change. It doesn't begin with dieting, but with modifying your diet (and lifestyle) to encourage healthy eating!
Glad you've found us and hope we can help you as you begin your new journey!
Self-love is the only weight-loss aid that really works in the long run. - Jenny Craig
Welcome Faith, great to have you as an addition to the team! Good Luck on your journey! If I can lose the weight and keep it off using Sparks anyone can. I have also struggled with weight for many years! You just need to persevere, and if you have a bad food day, start over again tomorrow! Just don't give up, because the reward of hitting your goal weight is well worth it!!!! Lynne
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up.
- John Maxwell, author and public speaker
Be wise in the use of time. The question in life is not how much time do we have. The question is what shall we do with it.
Welcome to the team. If you track and get a bit of exercise you will lose it. I started about where you are and lost slowly over a year and a half. It is better this way as you learn more about yourself and how to keep it off. I am almost at goal and it feels great. You can do this too!
Welcome to SP and the team. This site is by far the best program I have found. I have been very successful so far and now believe that I can reach my goal and maintain it - its about a lifetime commitment, not short-term.
My suggestions: Take it one step at a time, keep up to date on the nutrition and fitness trackers (the most awesome tools!!!), and when you need support or motivation, log on and you will find it.
