How wonderful that you have joined the team. Please continue to ask questions as they arise. When I first found SparkPeople, I started out by making my SparkPage. It was fun and made me feel like I was a "part of". The next thing I did was start recording the foods I ate on the Nutrition Tracker. Welcome aboard!
One small step.

From my experience I have to agree start slowly. Start off with small goals and eventually they will turn themselves into the big goals.
Like for example. My goal is to be in a size 12/13 by end of May. I am almost there. I can get them over my hips now but no button and zipper. So its working.
You will get there and I wish you the best of luck and I have found if you need to chat and get advice and help this is a great place to come to. The blogs and the help from other Sparkers really do help. Hugs and good luck
Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (NIV) Mark 11:24
I only take one day at a time, and not worry about the past. Right now is what is important.

Hi Josie, This is my advice: follow the steps given by spark people, start little by little (drinking ALL your glasses of water for example), and be constant with exercise. Forget about dieting, the only thing that REALLY works is changing bad eating habits into good eating habits. Eat healthy food 5 times a day. And use the word 'I'. Think positive. Take care =)
MOVE THAT BODY TO A BETTER BODY, THANK YOU LESLIE SANSONE!!!!!!!!
