JLOJENJEN 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. Welcome to the team. I like the way you put it, a weakness for food. A good place to start is with the nutrition tracker. There is a tutorial on how to use it. That will guide you on where your diet needs tweaking. For instance I didn't lose weight for 2 weeks, looking back, my sodium intake was high. These are things you can look for. Second, the very first day start drinking more water. The goal is 8 8oz. glasses. It may take you 3 days or 3 weeks to reach that but start to strive for it on the very first day.
Stay in touch with your teams. That is where you support comes from. .
I love SparkPeople
