Thank you for all of your encouragements and friendships. It has really helped a lot. I have enjoyed reading from each and everyone. I have been going through what you all have said. I thought I could do all of this by myself and I can't. Please don't forget me. I will keep popping in with my progress and maintaining my weight. Everyone is right in what was said, I didn't come this far to gain all this weight back again. Thanks again!

WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

Hi Carolyn, and welcome to Spark People!!! You will find a lot of friends and support on here. Everyone is real friendly and eager to help. For the most support, join some of the great teams available on here. There are so many that you are bound to find at least one to meet your needs.
I am Carolyn. I don't have many friends. I lost the weight I wanted to lose and I love my size. I wouldn't mind losing ten more pounds. But at times it really don't make a difference when I am sick and can't pull myself out of bed now days. At times, I need encouragement because I really want to go back to my old eating habits of junk food and not working out like I use too. Please help!
