Welcome! and congrats on taking on the 3-day challenge! I'm going to give up chocolate for 3 days which is going to be so hard for me - but I'm excited, too. It'll be nice to prove to myself that I can give it up without dying! LOL!
We're glad to have you on the team!

Welcome, Sue. Know you'll love the support and motivation you received for SP and especially this team.
Welcome Sue - Indygirl is a fantastic inspiration. If she could do it how can we have any excuse to fail? I joined SP in May this year and spent the first few weeks just getting used to using it.
If you want to lose weight using the tracker daily and measuring portion sizes were key for me. Plus realising I wasn't on a diet that was going to end but instead making long term changes to how I eat.
Wishing you the best of luck in whatever you want to achieve.
Welcome, you are in the right place, come back at least once a day, take it one day at a time, one meal at a time, one exercise session at a time.
I read something awhile back, that if a person has a LOT of weight to lose it, remove the pressure by eating 8 oz of food when you get up in the morning, then every three hours after that eat 8 oz of food, until you go to bed, don't eat anymore until you get up the next morning. Also, don't tell anyone what your doing, there will just be too much said about it.
I also encourage eating 1/2 your weight in ounces of water a day and 1/2 your weight in grams of protein a day. Try to exercise 10 minutes three times a day if just starting to exercise. Isometrics are a good starting point if mostly in a chair. Wall pushups when in the bathroom has helped me a lot.

Which came first, the tornado or the travel trailer??
Hi my name is Sue,
I have never posted anything before, so I am nervous to say the least. I have been popping in and out of Sparkpeople for about 10 months now, so I think it's time to poke a toe out of the shadows!
It is so wonderful to have a place that feels safe and encouraging. In the 10 months I haven't lost any weight, but I haven't gained either, so that's something. I now feel ready to move forward.
From what I have seen, I have picked the perfect team for me "Team Indygirl"
I am taking the 3 day challenge and giving up alcohol, it feels good already.
