This is a fantastic site to gain resources and support along our weight loss journey. I am relatively new to this site and have found it to be invaluable to me. I started with following the menu plan option. I was able to print out the weekly menu (and best of all the shopping list!!) and I put it in a binder and knew what I would be having every day. Once I got more confident in serving sizes and self control I was able to stop using the menu and just create my own.

I still use the daily tracker (believe me this makes a HUGE difference) and I purchased the SparkPeople Cook Book. I haven't made a meal yet that I haven't loved.

I won't lie and tell you that it's been a breeze, but I will tell you that being an active member with this team and others I have been able to stay motivated and to find support and advice whenever I feel my resolve waning.

Ask questions, make comments and participate as much as you can. You will reap benefits that you can't imagine.

I look forward to hearing your success stories.

And remember...I BELIEVE IN YOU!!

Welcome to the team. I find that when I take the time to take care of myself I am more equiped to deal with the busyness of my day. On days when I can't get along run in I find that even 30 minutes makes a big difference.

Keep us posted on your progress. We are here to help.

Hi fellow Spark People. My name is Mary and I just joined Spark People to help with a healthier life style. I think motivation has been a bigger of my problems. You know how it goes when you eat fast food and say oh Ill start tomorrow, and how one bite of something "good" leads to more bites. Along with motivation, cooking healthy, exercising and staying on track has been a major problem for me. I like to run, so I am hoping to get back into that as well. I do live a busy life and trying to fit me time in has been a problem. I am married with one teenager at home, I work full time and as well a full time student. So I am needing about three of me already :-)
