It's incredibly important to have people around you to offer support, between your group on Facebook, and those on SP, I hope you're finding all the encouragement you need. I remember when I made the decision to lead a healthier lifestyle, many people congratulated me on just being here, since it is a step in the right direction. You've got this in the bag!!
"It's not about being fat; it's all about being fit" "It's not about being thin; it's all about being healthy" "It's not about weighing less; it's all about having more energy"
Nothing like trying on clothes to make you see what you've been trying to avoid. My experience is that the tracking really helps. I've been backsliding lately so I'm back to detailed tracking to hold myself accountable.
Best wishes for your success.

Although, I originally signed up for SP in January, I really didn't do anything. After trying on clothes last week, I decided I better take a my health a more seriously. So on Saturday, I started tracking my food. It has been an eye opening experience and since my income is limited, I have to work with what I have. Over the past few days I have made appropriate adjustments to stay within most of my goal limits. I still need to work on a few areas. I have a good support system with a special group of friends on Facebook. After years of obesity and marital problems, I pray that Spark People and a divorce will allow me to be meet my weight loss goal over the next two years. I have a lot to lose, over 100 pounds but I think I am finally ready to take on the Challenge.
