    Hey Kate! Saw your question about my measurements ... you don't have to take yours, I only did mine for a challenge I'm doing on my local team. Can't wait to get to know you better on this journey of ours!!

    There's lots on this site besides exercise (which I consider two four letter words.)
    You might want to check out the SparkRecipes and starting your own cookbook, since you already love the sport!
    Here's to your success!

    emoticon Kate,
    The goal of this website is to teach people to live a healthy lifestyle, not just a 'diet'. That means exercising regularly and eating healthy nutritious meals for the rest of your life in order to lose weight and then keep it off!
    Spark's tools and program encourages you to learn healthy living one step at a time, working on good habits until they become second nature. It is not easy, and it will take time getting used to it, but will be rewarding in the end to stick with it.
    Tracking calories is the key. Accurately weighing and measuring everything you eat is vital, as guessing can too easily go over. I was good with exercising, but had never tracked my food before and that made a huge difference and opened my eyes to just how easy it is to consume more calories than your body needs. You must also make sure you set the Fitness Tracker to how much exercise you do in a week so it can give the Nutrition Tracker the right calorie range to stay in to lose weight. I actually really enjoy juggling my food choices to make sure I get the right nutrient ratios and stay in the calorie range, its really quite challenging LOL. But getting them right means your metabolism will be fueled properly, important to make your exercise pay off and burn those calories!
    There are no food restrictions really, just learn to control serving size and make healthier substitutions in your recipes. Sparks has a recipe data base you can search for all your favorites.
    I wish you all the best with your journey to a new you!
