Hello there, I think this is a good place for support as long as the members in the group actively want to help each other. I live in Pinellas county and I originally wanted to find people in my area to get with to possibly walk or what not, I'm hoping we start being able to reach out more then just virtual life.

Hi, and welcome to Sparkpeople! I am over 40 too and it is a lot harder than when I was 20, so I totally understand. But it can definitely be done!! Read the articles on here about nutrition, especially portion control. That's where most of us get a reality check. And use the food tracker. For the first few days, just track what you normally eat, but make sure you track your portions correctly. You may be amazed at what you find (I know I was!). The other piece of advice is to start moving (if you aren't already). If you already have an exercise program, awesome! If not, then get moving. Even just walking to start. There are also some great videos on Sparkpeople that you can use, some only 5 minutes long!

Sparkpeople will definitely give you support, so you have come to the right place! I have made some great friends, including local ones that I love running into now and then. When others are on the same path you are, it is so motivating to talk and share good and bad.

Welcome!! If you have any questions or need anything, just post on here or send me a message. I'll be glad to help!

Hi, I am new to this site. I have tried loosing before in the past and was unsuccessful. It was hard to know where to go for support. I am over 40 years old and ready for a change. If anyone has any suggestions or support to give I would like to hear from you. I really need a support system to help me through this and stick with it as a new life style and helping others in the same way. :-) Thanks.
