JRLQT62 and to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle. Take it one day at a time, one step at a time.
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.

You have come to the right place to find support on your fitness journey. You are NOT DIETING---you are BECOMING MORE FIT. Spark is not a diet. It is not about deprivation. Spark is about making healthy choices in your nutritional intake and in your exercise. The Spark fitness program works best when you set your fitness goals then make small changes at a time in your lifestyle until those changes have become a habit.
As a nurse, I know that an individual with ADHD who is learning something new does best by approaching that new challenge using "baby steps." My advice is to avoid putting pressure on yourself to try to change too quickly. Set small goals that move you closer to the larger goal. Reward yourself when you achieve each "mini goal"
It would be helpful for you to set up your Spark page, so that we can send you messages of support and virtual Spark goodies.
You have joined a team of compassionate individuals who are in various stages on their fitness journey. We are willing to listen and to share with other members from our own experience. Stay in touch, okay? I'm glad you've joined us!

Hello everyone, my name is Jo and I am overwhelmed by the amount of useful information in SparkPeople. I joined several weeks ago and I did not come back until today. I really need to lose weight and I feel that this website can help me. I have ADHD and I'm aware that it will be a struggle for me to be consistent but I'll do my best.
