emoticon 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!

My name is Lorie. I joined SparkPeople a few years ago and became a fitness dabbler. I would get on once in awhile, try a couple of videos and exercises, look around and think "I really don't need something like this." This went on for months! One day I woke up and the scale read higher then it had ever read, I didn't like pictures of myself, hated shopping for clothes and had just fallen into a blah state of mind. I was taking care of everyone else but ME!
I found myself on here again but still not really giving it my all. Until this year! I dunno if it was the fact that out of no it seemed...I had started losing weight without even trying, or if it was the fact that I have started to love myself again. Either way, I am running again, love to shop for new clothes and as of today am 10lbs away from my goal weight!
Staying motivated is the HARDEST for me so please feel free to swing by my sparkpage and let's be friends!!!!
