MALTEASE7 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 and to the Spark People and the Dealing with Depression team. We are so happy that you have decided to join us. I don't think that I would change meds that are working either. As Imagemlover has said, exercise and the nutrition tracker are going to be your best friends. The exercise will amp your metabolism and the nutrition tracker will tell you where any dietary mistakes are happening, so that you can tweak your diet to compensate. I hope to get to know you better through your posts and when you get your Spark Page up and running. Stay in touch with the team, so we can provide support and encouragement along the way. It is wonderful to have you with us on this journey! Take care and God bless, Deb T.

Hi. Welcome to the team. The nutrition tracker will help you stay within your nutrition ranges. There is a tutorial video on how to use the tracker. If you don't want to change meds, exercise to burn calories will be necessary. I do strength training 3x a week and cardio 5 or 6 times a week.
Good luck with your goals. Stay in touch with the team.
I love SparkPeople
