emoticon KBANDOS and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

emoticon Hi Kathy. I am Michelle. I am a yo-yo dieter as well. This year I decided to live healthier. Not do the "diet thing" and so far it seems to be working for me. This is such a great site full of both wonderful information and wonderfully supportive people.

Welcome to SP and the NY Team, Kathy!

Thinking of 'diet' as meaning 'nutrition' rather than crazy-plan-number-308-to-lose-weight is the first plce to start. SP's Getting Started Guide introduces you to tools that will help in the beginning; then, do give full attenton to the "SparkDiet". It is not 'a diet'; instead this group of Stages leads us each to changing ingrained habits; dumping old 'bad' ones and creating healthynew ones. To me the word 'diet' these days means 'my personal plan for nutrition'.

The site is huge, loaded with articles and teams that you can use for resources of information, ideas to tailor to you needs and preferences.... and teams full of caring people. If you should slip, learn the WHY of it... then take the lesson forward as you get back on track.

ENJOY the journey... No more yoyo's!
