Hi and welcome aboard! I guarantee you will not be disappointed in your decision in joining Sparkpeople (if you do it right)! I will admit the results will vary due to your efforts and your honesty towards yourself. I do wish you the best in your Sparkpeople journey and if you should need some words of encouragement or motivation, hit me up as a Spark-friend? If you have any questions; feel free to send me a spark-mail. If you have some spare time, please visit my spark-page and read some of my spark-blogs (located on the right hand side of my Spark-page). Also please take a look at my Spark-page Photo album and witness a true transformation of my accomplishments Before and Recent). If you have any problems of seeing my Spark page; shoot me a Spark-mail and Ill add you as a friend. There may be some confusion about my attendance. I have been in since 2009, but like others, I have fallen off the wagon and went missing. However, I just recently joined back up (1/23/13) and I am dead serious about it this time around! So if you are serious about achieving your weight goal; you are invited to ride along with me to accomplish it and if not; that is okay too! Again, I wish you the best! Now, enough reading; it is time for you to go accomplish your goals (Ooorah)!
