Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining! I've been a member a little more than two years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going! Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Good luck! Sheila
! Remember we're all in this together. Be sure to stay active on the boards and join a challenge. YOU CAN DO IT! If you need anything I'm here. Love yourself no matter what. Good luck with your new journey to a healthier lifestyle.

Hello everyone. I just joined sparkpeople today and I'm looking around, getting started, logging stuff, and so on. I've come to terms that I need to make a change. I'm just not happy with myself anymore, what I've been doing to my body. I've put on weight since I started college, and I'm not liking what I'm turning into. I miss being able to run and now I feel winded after maybe a quarter mile, run up the stairs if I forgot something, and just in general, be healthy. So, with college graduation lurking in the future, as well as the summer internship search, I've decided that I'm going to make the change to become a healthier person, to lose the weight I've put on and tone up, to learn how to cook healthier foods and eat healthier when I can't cook.
