Welcome. Take some time to explore the site. There are many articles and videos, challenges, and recipes. If you click on the Help menu at the top of any page, you'll get a FAQ page which can help you get to know the site. I agree with the start slow and track everything. It will help you see where you need to make changes.

Welcome to the team emoticon I would suggest you start out slow, it won't be as confusing. Make small changes, then add more as you master them. You will succeed
good luck on your weight loss journey.

Slow and steady gets you there

Hi Pam! Welcome to Sparkpeople. I would suggest you start with the trackers to begin to track your food and exercise and then slowly incorporate the other parts of this site. The trackers really do help to hold you accountable.

I get to do this!

My name is Pam. I have two teenage daughters and a wonderful husband, all of whom love me just the way I am. I have high blood pressure and two brothers who have died from massive heart attacks and both were younger than I am. I am not in "bad" shape but not in great shape either. I run some, do some yoga but I am not consistent. I hate cold weather and tend to hibernate when it is cold outside. I prefer to run outside rather than on a treadmill which I have at our neighborhood gym. I am trying to get motivated and am new to Spark People looking for some motivation. You would think that with my family history I would have the motivation to be more healthy. I see lots of teams and am a little overwhelmed by the size of this site. I have read the guides to getting started and am ready to start. Any help in navigating and posting will be greatly appreciated.
