Thank you for all the warm welcome and good pointers on being successful at getting fit! So far, so good. I think today was the first day ever that I was successful at drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day. It's always right in front of me in my goals, etc. I like SP so far. emoticon

Welcome to the team. The best way to start is slow, check out spark people. Amazing articles and exerscise videos. The best feature I find is the food tracker, it counts your calories,fat
Carbs, protein, cholesterol. And any other nutrient you want. I also track my sodium and potassium I take I need to monitor them closely. Good luck on your weight loss journey. emoticon

Your spark friend Nancy

Well, Texas! Glad you're here with us. This site is a lot of help. It's best to take a little time to get to know what's here, read the FAQs on the Help page and check out all the tabs. It's also a good idea to decide on a plan that let's you start slow and built up gradually. That way you won't get overwhelmed. And remember, we all slip. The important thing is to not give up. Good luck.

Let me introduce myself. I am 52 years old and live in the Greater Houston area. I have been married for 20 years to a wonderful man and we have one teenage daughter. I also have 3 fur babies--2 cats and a Chinese Crested dog. My hobbies are sewing, scrapbooking, reading, and walking my dog. In 2012, I graduated from 7 years of school obtaining my BSW and MSW in social work. Over those years, I put on quite a bit of weight--mostly late night eating and stress/comfort eating. This year, I had a routine surgery and got a scary complication--a arterial blood clot. I decided that I was going to get healthy this year in order to be around for my daughter and grandkids someday. At the same time, my husband's employer started a prevention program at work that if successful could mean 20% reduction in our insurance premiums for 2015. So, I searched for a free weight loss coach/program and found SparkPeople. I currently weight 205 and I am 5'3" tall. My long term weight goal is 135 lbs and I'd like to loose it in one year or so. I like SparkPeople so far and I think it could benefit me in reaching my goals. I look forward to learning from everyone here and encourage everyone as well. Thank you.
