I am an empty nester who wants to make getting healthy a job. I want to look, feel better move easier. Since this is my first day, I am definitely in need of support. I have to finally be aware of my salt intake. Any ideas AJ's how to start.
I just joined a few weeks ago and it helps me a lot to account for what I eat each day so I can change some foods when need be and being able to put my fitness time down so I can see how I am burning calories and where I need to burn more.I started out at 287 and now I,m down to 262 .I am 54 and would like to be down at least 3 pant sizes by my birthday. One step at a time is my motto.

New to SparkPeople but thought it would be a great tool to use in my weight loss journey. I'm also using Skinny Fiber and have lost 10 lbs with it so far. It makes me feel full so I don't overeat, but I think the tracking tools here on SparkPeople will be a plus.
Hi. I joined a couple of years back but was inactive. Rejoined this week and trying to get acclimated to al that there is. I am not really ready for teams yet. I am just trying to navigate all that there is. I do enjoy reading comments and will respond. Spark has great tools.

I have join this program about a week ago and still haven't explored everything. No weight loose yet. That's because I want to make sure that I am on the right track of tracking everything. I am trying to start over on the January Jump Start program.
