I second the idea to use the nutrition and fitness trackers. It is such a learning experience to see where those calories are coming from and it is a rush to see how many you've burnt off walking or running. Get a pedometer and wear it to track your steps. It'lll become a game to see how many calories you can burn each day. I also eat off a small plate and don't eat after six p.m.

Welcome!! The best advice is to have fun...look at it as a challenge and treat yourself along the way...I have a prize jar with little and big things listed..it motivate me and the prize could be as small as a bite of favorite candy or one scoop of ice cream and as large as earrings or favorite thing you want to do...or buy emoticon

Then at times you're going to have to let yourself make mistakes. That's been my biggest learning curve here: I'm not going to get it perfect every day. Sometimes my weight has stayed put or gone up again BUT the general trend is DOWN. It's ok to make the odd mistake. The real trick is to keep on going! The support you get from other people really helps here so my other piece of advice is to blog, especially when feeling a bit down. The responses you get will fill you with hope and gratitude as well as fresh resolve.

Replace one not so good food in your diet with a better choice. Decide where you want to go and let your choices lead you there. Let go of the need to do it right and find joy in doing it better. Take advantage of the wealth of information contributed by a worldwide support group (practical and specific), then pass it on. You'll get it right several times.
Then on the second day.........

There are numerous tools here on SparkPeople to help you along your journey to better health. Spark members are more than happy to share their tips and what has worked for them.

I highly recommend using the nutrition and the fitness trackers for starters. It's good to know what you're putting into your body. You can use the meal planner on the nutritional tracker for guidance or you can choose to leave that off completely.

Here's an overview to help get you started:
