BNELSON12 and to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi Brittany. Welcome to the team. I am so glad that you joined us on the get fit and healthy journey. By doing so your children will also get fit and healthy. Two less children that will join the epidemic of obese children in our country. . You are a terrific mother for doing that.
Check out the nutrition tracker. You can program it to include your children also to make sure they are meeting their daily requirements. I live alone, but there is a tutorial that tells you how to use the tracker. Check it out. Start with only 2 or 3 habits to change. You don't want to overwhelm yourself. When those become a habit, you can move on to others. It took me about 2 or 3 weeks before I was drinking the 8 8oz glasses of water. Although I had given up soda in October, I still was not drinking enough water. I am now though.
Stay in touch with the team. We love to cheer your successes Go Brittany Go and we will support you and encourage you when you need it.
I love SparkPeople

Glad you joined us on this journey towards healthier, happier living. The site is awesome and offers all you need to get started and keep going.
I was nervous also when I first joined Sparks as I had never done anything like this online before. I can tell you I have met the most fabulous people and the tools are great. Just take it slow, one small goal at a time and keep sharing so we can get to know you and support you better.
We are here for you.
