Welcome Shree. You may find it helpful to just look around the site for your first day or two...start using you food and water logs and it will all fall into place for you....just emoticon pace yourself.

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

Go little Turtle Go!

Hi everyone. I am new to sparkpeople and a little overwhelmed. There is so much information on this site I don't know where to start. I thought this might be the place. I have read messages over the last few days and found it very supportive but I wasn't sure where to start to read messages and offer my support back to others. Is joining a team the way to do it?

I am 39 years old and have about 60 pounds to lose. I started "again" this past Monday on my weightloss journey. I am following the Dr Phil rapid start program. It is a 2 week plan and tomorrow will be the start of week 2. I took my measurements which I hope to do on a monthly basis and I will weigh myself every Monday morning.

I don't spend too much time on the computer, but I am slowly starting to find my way around here.

Thanks for listening.

Sheree

If you're tired of always starting over, then stop giving up.
