emoticon TERRIWINKLER 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.

Welcome, Lynn. You have already been given some great advice. This whole process of adopting a healthy lifestyle can seem overwhelming to anyone, much less to those of us with depression issues. One of the best things I learned from my therapist was that I didn't have to do everthing at once. By choosing to take one small step instead of being overwhelmed by the whole journey I could make progress. Keep in touch.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

Hi Lynn, I'm Karen and I here to support you all I can along with the rest of the team members. What are your goals? What are your challenges? I'm assuming since you're in this group you struggle with depression which can make any new undertaking seem monumental. But if you just break your goals down into small, achievable ones and take things one small step at a time all those small steps add up. Personally, I'm on a ketogenic diet, that is, Low Carb High Fat, and not only is it helping me lose weight but it's done tremendous things for my mood. Please post again as to your specific goals and challenges and we'll do our best to be there for you. Also, feel free to email me any time. Take care. Karen
