Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining! I've been a member a little over 3 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 havenít, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. We are here to keep everyone motivated. Iíve found that the best source of motivation on spark is posting, asking questions, and finding new friends that are in this together. We are all on this journey of a healthy live style, so your not alone in this. People need someone to believe in them. They need to know that if they take that first step out of their comfort zone, someone will be supporting them all the way. With small words of encouragement, with just a little extra time, that someone could be you. In some cases, others may just be unaware of their true abilities and potential. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Good luck! Sheila

My name is Bethany and a couple days ago I realized I felt very sluggish and put on a few extra pounds. The worst was that my digestive condition, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), has been pretty bad. I haven't been eating right in almost a year and it's finally starting to catch up with me.
So I'm doing something about it now. I'm cutting out all red meats, all dairy, and all fried foods and I'm eating more fruits and vegetables, which are good for my IBS condition. I've also been working out using Turbo Jam. It's only been three days so far but I'm already feeling a change in my overall health.
A little about me: I'm a 25-year-old single Accounts Payable Supervisor who is also the mommy of a gorgeous 1-year-old bearded dragon named Sydney. I love to read and write as well as play video games. I'm kind of nerdy, and kind of proud of that. Lol. Just a generally down-to-earth chick living life.
