Hi and welcome! I live in Garner in Wake County. You did very well on your first post emoticon I'm so happy for you that you've been cancer free for 7 years - that's fantastic news! emoticon

SparkPeople has so much to offer to help you on your healthy lifestyle journey. Most everything you need to know is on the orange tabbed toolbar near the top of the page. Under the Healthy Lifestyle tab, you can click SparkDiet from the drop-down menu and that will explain the four phases of the Spark experience. Also, under the Healthy Lifestyle tab are exercise Videos for every fitness level - some are even cardio that you can do while sitting down!).

The nutrition and fitness trackers are wonderful tools. By tracking everything you eat and drink the first week, you can see how you're doing and how you can make changes and substitutions to get more healthy results. For motivation, there are Success Stories under the Community tab on the toolbar and there are also a myriad of Spark Teams that you can join depending on your needs and interests.

The Message Boards under the Community tab even have a game room where you can have some fun!. Take your time looking around the site - there's a wealth of information and resources. Just take baby steps, make one or two healthy changes at a time and when your body and mind get used to those, more on and make another small change. That way, you won't get overwhelmed and the small changes become lifelong healthy habits. For instance, the first week you could track what you currently eat and also start working toward drinking 8 cups of water a day.

Good luck and again, welcome!

As my name implies, I have been cancer free for 7 years come Dec. 6, 2012 and am seeking to make some lifestyle changes to make sure I stay that way. I'm in Onslow county - specifically Jacksonville, home of Camp LeJuene. This is my first time participating in this type of communication method so I hope nothing blows up when I click "post message". emoticon
