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 havenít, 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. Iíve 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

"Be the kind of women that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says "Oh Crap, She's up!"
check this out and if you get a really nice goodie from me it is because I am celebrating keeping 40 pounds off for two years and..... starting to loose more.
Not the biggest looser but hopefully the longest. Maria

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal 2 COR 16-18

I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I'm 36 years old, from Long Island, NY and I joined Spark after trying MANY other diet plans out there (none of them working for me). I am here trying to lose 50 lbs to start (then an additional 10 or 15 hopefully to get to my ultimate goal). Its going to be a long road, but this seems like such a supportive place to embark on my journey. Please, anyone that would like to, please feel free to message me or send a friend request!
