Oh to be almost 30 and to decide to change AND really do something, wish I had then!
Congrats to you for doing it now! I learn a lot from this team and encouragement abounds here so don't just read-although you will learn a lot by going back and reading blogs and posts-post yourself! Get involved even if it is just your goals and numbers at first.
Look forward to hearing more

I agree with everyone, you have come to the right place for support, motivation and encouragement. The three go hand in hand. Then too go Nutrition and Exercise, you can not benefit from one without the other. Stay positive, committed and determined and your Quest can be reached............Good Luck.

SP is a GREAT place for learning to set and achieve goals!...
Welcome to the team, Melinda!
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
Melinda you are smart to make the changes while you are young. It is much easier to do when you are mostly healthy. It is much harder when you get older so go for this great opportunity. This is an awesome place to get healthier. So much information and support. Pat in Maine.
Pat in Maine. I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker. I will do it slowly I like it that way. Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip! JUST DO IT!
Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.

I starting with my weight because it has been a throne in my side sense birth, and I'm hoping that with this success my other goals will just fall in place.
