Hi Diedre - welcome to SP and welcome to our Team. You have come to a great place for this healthy lifestyle journey :-)

Take your time to have a look around the site and read the articles - especially the ones on Nutrition and Fitness in the healthy lifestyle section in the toolbar above.

Just start this journey off with baby steps, changing only one or two things to start with and allow your mind/body to get used to the changes before adding something else to the mix. This is the BEST way to gradually UNlearn your old bad habits as you equally gradually learn some new ones. Make good use of the Nutrition Tracker because only then will you really know where your calories are coming from. That gives you the power to tweak your diet so that you get a healthy balance, within a healthy calorie range.

I saw on your SparkPage that you have had a recent shift. Hopefully you are settling in well, now!

I look forward to seeing you on the message boards, and in fact, this is the best way to get that ongoing support which is very important for helping you to reach your goals.

If you have any questions just ask - there is usually someone around so a response shouldn't be too far away.

Take care,
