Debbie, Turtles are Great. You'll have lots of support from slow losers and plateau help. Just move.. and track what you eat every day and you'll lose. Remember Progress not Perfection. I started decluttering my house the same time I started decluttering my body and I've found a correlation between my environment and my body. Again, Welcome and take your time on the site its got alot of info.

Hi Debbie and welcome to the team! Spark is a great place for support and encouragement! You will find many 'non exercisers' here that have 'converted' and now enjoy some form of activity! Start off slow and find an activity that you enjoy - you don't have to be a gym rat to be active! Try dancing, gardening, walking or anything that gets you moving! As for cooking, search for healthy recipes for all your favorites.

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way. ~ Wayne Dyer

Hi and Welcome I have been fat all my life and never even thought of changing but then in Jan I had an opp on my foot and so I had to sit at home and discovered Spark and began following some of their ideas and found it fun and this stuff is not only for those already thin and fit (I hate those adds on TV selling exercise equipment by these people who have never had to diet in their lives and were born fit.) Spark is for Real people. So enter in and enjoy
Hello Debbie. Welcome to the team. You will love this team. There are so many challenges (very doable ones) and so much to talk. It is a fun team. Best of luck to you. And you will love being a turtle (a slow loser).

My name is Debbie and I am from New York. Actually I live about 15 minutes from the original Woodstock sight. I need to lose weight so I will feel better. I find that I do not care much for exercise. I like to cook and eat. I can use all the help and advice. I am a slow loser. I lose a couple of pounds and then they seem to come back. Help.
