Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Hi Jen, welcome to spark! I would definitely encourage you to use the spark trackers, either following their program or inputting your own calorie choices. Good luck and come on here for motivation whenever you need any!

Pink, x

Rather than waiting around for someone to fall in love with me I fell in love with myself. Either way, once you're loved your lights are on.-Author Unknown

Hi everyone - I recently moved overseas on a global assignment and am finding it very difficult to keep healthy here - the food is quite different..My husband is now an at home parent doing all the cooking and shopping - and I am struggling to say the least. My ultimate goal is 35 pounds away. Hoping that this site and the people I meet here will help. Hi everyone, Jen emoticon
