Hi Lindsay,

This a great community, I have been coming and going since 2009. Join some of the challenges, the only person your measuring yourself is you. I'm doing the skinny jeans challenge, not because I'm desperate to get into skinny jeans, because I like a varied routine with someone telling me what to do and how (and no equipment needed). I've also joined the run/walk thingy which I've just tried to find and lost somewhere on the site. emoticon This is a good one to get you simply moving.

Go to Challenge Central and browse!

Most of all have fun. Join in the chat and start recording what you eat. To be honest that's the best bit for me, stops me picking as I know I've got to put it on the schedule and once I've seen the calories/fat/salt building up it puts me off... LOL

Take care
Nx

Worry not. Lots of help on here for weight loss.
I joined slimming world, I don't go to group any longer but the spark SW group gives a ton of support. I bet the same goes for other weight loss clubs. There are fab recipes on here that have the calories ready tracked.
Just use the trackers, chat in the groups and enjoy being a spark member. I have been here 6 years now and still love the site

Blessed are the cracked for it is those who let in the light.

emoticon Lindsay - there is so much inspiring stuff on here - reading about people who have succeeded is helpful too.

Take some time to explore Spark People - and ask here if you're stuck. We all like different things, and there are teams for EVERYTHING! If you join a team, then change your mind, you can just leave the team again (there is a 'leave this team' button near the bottom of the page) - have fun exploring would be my advice.

This is a good place to come for support, help and advice. Just go at your own pace: don't be overwhelmed by the site, but pick and choose which bits interest you or you find helpful. You will probably gradually expand to use more areas, but this is not mandatory! Start with the nutrition tracker, and weigh and track every morsel or sip that goes into your mouth. (You may be shocked at the result!) That's how I began, and I managed to lose over 60lbs in seven months. Good luck!

Don't be terrified, you've come to the right place. You can pretty much find someone from every path of life here, so I'm quite sure that you will find someone sharing and overcoming any concerns you might have. Welcome and best wishes!
