Hi Tina ! Welcome to the DwD team and this journey toward a healthier and happier lifestyle. As you come online with us you will discover more and more support and encouragement. We are here to share a caring and compassionate group with you. The more frequently you come to draw from the team's support, the more often you will feel a connection with success.
Set yourself small goals to reach your destination. One of the strongest tools on Spark People is the Nutrition Tracker. If you use it to identify where your calories are coming from, you will soon learn to pay attention to the recommended ranges for calories and other nutrients. Weighing and measuring your portions to be in compliance will ultimately bring you to the point where you are headed to succeed.
Best wishes. Come along with us so we can share the celebration when you reach your goals. Do take it one step at a time...choose 'mini-goals' so you can be successful.

Tina to Spark and the Dealing With Depression team,
Glad you joined us on this journey towards healthier living. The tools and support are here for you.
Take your time getting to know the site but do start by setting one small goal to work on - this could be 10 minutes of fitness per day, or striving for 8 glasses of water daily. Start learning to use the nutrition tracker as most find these to be the best tool to monitor progress.
Let us know if you need anything and keep sharing to receive support and get to know people .
