!! My name is Angela and I have been on this site since June 2012. Congratulations on taking your first steps to a brand new you and a new weight loss experience where you are supported by en entire community of like-minded people. This website is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues.
I completely understand about sharing with friends who either get sick of hearing it, or are feeling bad because they aren't doing as well. Just know that you blog for yourself... not for others. So join teams and blog. Talking about it makes it true, and a lot of times will keep you honest and accountable!
I recommend reading through the Getting Started Guide at this link: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_started.as
So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome, and Enjoy!
