Welcome. I know it seems over whelming, but it can be done, one day at a time as KSGAMMA
said. And please do forgive yourself and forget it if you don't stick to your plan. Start with
small changes, and if you keep at it you will succeed. Good luck and we're all rooting for
you here at spark people. emoticon

Slow and steady gets you there

good advice from BeBarb. Also, one day at a time and if you don't meet your goals for the day, forgive yourself and move on. Welcome and good luck on your journey.

Welcome. Glad you decided to join us. I know what you mean about all that "information" out there. It's hard to decide what's best. One step at a time is a sure thing. Start by recording what you're doing now so you can see where to make changes. Then change a little, not a lot. Different things work for different people and you're the only person that can figure out what is going to work for you. The way to do that is to try something, stick with it for a while, if it works stay there, if not, modify it or try something else. But avoid making radical changes that overwhelm you. A lot of the time that's why people give up.

Achieve success in any area of life by identifying the optimum strategies and repeating them until they become habit - Charles Givens

Hi everyone! My name is Liann and I am beginning again on this journey of weight loss, getting healthier and self-discovery. I am so unsure of what I am doing that it is almost frightening. There is a lot of "do this, not that" stuff out there that I sometimes get confused.
One step at a time is what they say, but sometimes those first several steps can be pretty scary.
