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 haven’t, 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. I’ve 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

Welcome to Spark People. This is a wonderful site full of many useful tools to help you with your weight loss journey. By joining a few teams you will get support and motivation from other members. Good luck in reaching your goals.
Actually, I'm no kid I am 56 and need to get serious about my health! So far, I am on meds for cholestrol & at risk for diabetes as my weight climbs This is all reversible - so far!
This is my 2nd time joining this site; the 1st time around this site seemed overwhelming & I quickly gave up. So this time I am going to stay the course! Thanks for your patience when I am unable to keep up with the community part. It's only Day 2 and I already feel a little swamped but I am awestruck by your stories of struggle & success, and I am touched by your offerings of support!
