    Welcome. This is such a great place for the support and help you need. You have a lot on your plate so take baby steps (you will hear this often) and take each day as they come. Some day you will fly high and do well and then there may be days not so much. There is always someone here that has been there and can offer advice or just to be a sounding board. Good Luck you can do this, many have.

    Hi, and welcome. Take heart, it can be done. I weighed 333lbs at one time. It took about 18 months to lose 100lbs, and I did not exercise, but I was working 40 hrs a week, a lot of that on my feet. After I retired I joined the Y, and lost another 30 lbs with diet and exercise. I still should lose maybe 40 more, but I've slacked off the plan. So, 4 days ago I gave up simple sugars, and I feel so much better already. I do have to get back to tracking my calories and sodium, tracking is crutial for me.
    God bless your efforts.

    This site is just amazing-- full of all kinds of information and tools to help us on our journeys to a healthy lifestyle. Best of all is the caring Community of fellow "Sparkers" ready to offer support and encouragement along the way.

    I've found that the more I use the site, the more successful I've been. The Nutrition Tracker is especially helpful. It can be kind of tedious to enter all your food, but I think it's just really important to get a grip on what we're really eating.

    And you don't have to make a lot of big changes, all at once-- small changes repeated on a consistent basis, like drinking water and eating more vegetables and getting just 10 minutes of exercise a day, is a great start. Sometimes I think if we try to start out doing everything at once, it's too hard to sustain. But if you start small, you can build on that as it becomes more routine.

    I don't belong to a gym or Weight Watchers or anything. I've lost weight just by using the Nutrition Tracker, staying within my calorie ranges, and walking (which is free). It also helps to make a list of your goals, and post copies where you'll see the list all the time-- so you can remind yourself why you're doing this.

    I wish you much success!!
