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.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!

Been doing weight watchers since Feb of 2012, lost 20 lbs by July. Since then I have been at gain a lb, loose a lb, gain 2 lbs, loose a lb... Found it hard, like doing math trying to figure out my points, not fun. So this is my day one to give something else a try. LOVE it so far, it is fun! Love that I am trying to collect points instead of figure them out, love that there are games, and rewards and the so cool...spin the wheel! I had just been telling my husband that if I made a site it would have rewards like a hopping frog that ate your totals if you recorded all that you ate, and that the animation would change everyday so you would want to see what it was, or something cool, something fun for goodness sakes. AND holy smokes, that is just what you have, FUN stuff. Even exercised today to a video just to get more points. Don't know what the points are for yet, and I really don't care if they are not 'for' anything, I am just having fun trying to collect them. Yep, Fun! Neat stuff!!! Think this could really work! Think I will learn a bit about nutrition too! 54 years old but like a kid at heart.
