I have been given the choice to sink or swim. Today, I am taking a deep breath and jumping in with two feet. My first stage of this journey is to throw off the junk food. I prayed this morning, I have given Thanks for not being alone in this journey.

Welcome back!
I have found great support here, it makes all the difference. That is why I am still here after all these year, I need the support just as much to maintain my goal weight as I did to get there.

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Thanks for the support. I have spent too long playing a guessing game with my health. God has closed many doors but those doors were not meant for passage. I am glad that I am back.

Hi! Welcome!
This is a wonderful community to work on goals. Start a sparkpage, join a few teams, start blogging... all these things will get you support!

Good Morning!
I have come back into the fold. The past few months have been very difficult. I am in need of community. I am ready to take this task on and have accepted that this the way and method in which I relate to food. I am tired of looking for that one thing that will make a difference.

I am ready to work! No more excuses!
