Welcome Take it one day at a time, it takes longer to get the pounds off then it does to put them on. Find what works for you and you will see success.

hello TWZTED,welcome to our team emoticon

If you're impatient to succeed try setting mini goals so that can succeed quickly and regularly. rg join our weekly challenge - set yourself a goal based on that and take part every day - you will have success at the end of the week. Or set a goal to eat 2 freggies a day (or whatever number is appropriate for you), then you can succeed every day. Basically try to focus on the small steps and celebrate achievements.

emoticon to Spark and to the team !

I agree, don't try to make too many changes at once. Choose one thing to work on, portion sizes for instance, then when you see some success in that first area, add something else. Trying to change everything at the same time is too overwhelming. Check out all the resources on the site, plus the team forums. Join challenges, they're very motivating.

Hi! I am happy you are here.

The best thing I can tell you is take it slow. Choose a couple goals that you feel you can succeed at. Once you reach those, add another one or two. Don't try to change everything all at once. That usually leads to burnout and falling off the wagon.

Get involved in your team. :) it's amazing how the motivation is helped and encouraged by the others here on the same journey you are on. Don't forget, you are learning to make lifetime changes.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but one of love, power and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
