I was overwhelmed when I joined this site.

I would get lost and I didn't know how to find them again. I bookmarked important links I wanted to come back to. If I got lost, I would find the Spark Points page and try to complete as many tasks as I could. I read articles, I track my food, I track fitness. It can be a lot to take in at once. That's why it's good to take it one step at a time.

Others are right that you just need to take it one step at a time, one small change. Make it a habit and keep moving. If you experience a setback or have a bad day, keep going. Don't give up and just keep moving forward.

Progress not perfection.


With God all things are possible

Yes, I have been trying to do everything at once. I need to simplify.
Thank you all for the good advice.

just take small steps to change the way you are eating and make everything you do count.

Be kind and understanding to every person you meet. They're fighting a battle that you know nothing about.

Hey Jo
Some of tools I use with my son for ADHD issues....
keep a routine
When I first started I too was overwhelmed
I decided
I would track food as I ate it...
I would do the exercise of the day because SP email came regularly
and I would scan the page and only read what interested me on that day
Just keep moving...make one dietary change you can live with it
and stick with it!

Carve out what is most important to you first, then allocate your day to others! I promise you and they will be better for this decision!!

Take it 1 step at a time. You will find a way to make it an everyday activity. Sparkpeople is a wonderful program. Remember not to beat yourself up over a set back. Just label it as a flareup and start again. Good Luck. emoticon

Hello everyone, my name is Jo and I am overwhelmed by the amount of useful information in SparkPeople. I joined several weeks ago and I did not come back until today. I really need to lose weight and I feel that this website can help me. I have ADHD and I'm aware that it will be a struggle for me to be consistent but I'll do my best.
