Thank you, Candace! I just joined the sparkling Marylanders! I'm in Kent County!
Where are you located? I spent most of the day yesterday trying to find my way around the site. Wow, pretty overwhelming at first! emoticon lol

Hi Lori! I'm Candace and I'm from Maryland too! Where in Maryland are you?

I suggest joining a few Spark Teams - they're super supportive and it's great to have some motivation and help along the way. I'll send you an invite to the Sparking Marylanders team. Keep an eye open for the invite!

New here and determined to follow through with getting this weight off. I have at least 30lbs I'd like to lose! My willpower is low, so I'm hoping to find some inspiration! 52yo and from Maryland, if anyone wants to share support! Good luck to all.
