While there are a lot of great tools here, I encourage you to dive right in and start tracking every single morsel of food that you swallow -- that alone helps you have willpower to only eat when you're hungry. It also will help you to see the nutritional value of what you're eating so you start eating wisely.

Since you know that you tend to "fizzle out" after a while, you should think of developing a network of Sparkfriends early in your program. Find teams with goals similar to yours and start posting on those team boards. Since we have over 6000 newbies on this team forum, post here. Read other posts and comment. Get to know others in your Class of 9/4-10. Having friends who are on the same journey to help you stay accountable -- and for you to do the same thing! -- will be extremely valuable in the weeks and months to come!

We're all in this together!!!

Howdy & Welcome to the team and to SPark.

I find that our dogs (we have SIX) are great inSPirations to me to get out and get some extra fitness minutes/steps. They LOVE it and your's will too!

Hope you have a SPlendid Journey and best of luck to you, although luck doesn't have much to do with it. It's what you put in to it. Just like a salad or your favorite meal. If you put rotten SPoiled food into your dish, you're not gonna get much good out of it, : )

And remember, emoticon

Have a GREAT Day!

I am brand new to SP, but like what I see so far. I have a habit of starting healthy lifestyle programs strong and then losing it after a few weeks to a few months, so I'm hoping I find whatever it is I need here to stay on track. I have my own business, three teenagers, a husband and a dog who all need attention, but am trying to carve out time to exercise and eat well. I have more than 100 pounds to lose, which is daunting and sometimes discouraging. I'm hoping to find inspiration and maybe inspire someone else.
