    Hello and Welcome to Spark... this site is amazing and it offers all the tools you need to reach your goals. I would recommend joining a few teams... making friends is a great way to stay motivated and supported. Beyond that I would just use your trackers daily and remember to track your sodium.
    Under the "My Tools" tab you will see a link for Sparkpoints, doing the things you can to get your points daily will help keep you active and learning and the more you are here the more connected and invested you will feel. If there is anything I can do to help you Plz feel free to come by my page and msg me, or if you'd like to be friends you can read my blogs and see if you'd like to add me.... Best of luck to you on this new journey, Sheryl

    Start with your class team and official state team. Then branch out into teams that share an interest or health condition. This way you find new members and people that you can relate to.

    Welcome to SparkPeople!

    Start with your Start Page! Here is a video to help you unlock the power of Your Start Page:

    Here's the video for the Nutrition Tracker - the best tool online!

    I was 54 when I joined SparkPeople and 56 when I came back and started my Spark Program, starting with Stage One. This is a one day at a time program, but if you do the SparkPeople Program Steps, it really does work. I am terribly average, it's the SP program that is extraordinary.

    I found logging my foods in the Nutrition Tracker helped me to lose 90 lbs in 16 months! I started at 210 and went to 120.

    I hung clothing that was too small on my closet door and every time I would get discouraged I would try them on. Week by week they started fitting! That kept me motivated.

    Welcome aboard, we really are all in the same boat! Sometimes we can sail right along but sometimes we have to be rowing like crazy!

    You can make it happen! SparkPeople really does work!

    emoticon So glad u became a Sparker. DON'T QUIT. That is all that matters. Promise to stay with this.

    I'm reading the BECK DIET SOLUTION, which isn't a "diet" but she teaches how to THINK like a THIN person. (Got a copy from the library.) I recommend it to everyone. (We have a support team here at Sparks.)

    CRAVING RESISTANCE
    Cravings are usually more emotional and physiologically intense than hunger. The moment I decide I will ABSOLUTELY NOT EAT cravings will diminish.

    When I experience a craving my attention gets fixated on food. It is important to remember that the experience of eating goes far beyond the actual time that food is in my mouth - It includes everything that happens afterward: feeling weak, guilty and out of control and gaining weight. In the past when I tried to diet, I gave into cravings, and I felt upset with myself.
    ----------------------------------------
    -
    I know I don't care at this moment, but pretty soon I'm going to feel really bad that I ate this. When I get on the scale, I'm going to care very much. If I don't learn to resist eating food I'm not suppose to have, I'll never be able to keep off the weight I lose.
    ---------------------
    I have to become an expert at resisting all food that I haven't planned to eat. If I want to lose weight and keep it off, I just can't eat what I want unless it is on my plan.
    -----------------
    I am choosing to say NO CHOICE.
    If I want to lose weight, I have to do what I need to do, not what I feel like doing.
    ---------------------
    Successful dieters and maintainers stay successful because they don't eat whatever they want, whenever they want it. They stick to their plans.
    ---------------
    It is true that I don't care at this moment. But if I eat this unplanned food, I'm going to care quite a lot in a few minutes. I know I'll feel really bad if I give in now, but I'll feel really terrific in a few minutes if I resist. I need to do something else! emoticon
