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 havenít, 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!

emoticon So I came to SparkPeople about 6 years ago and 6 years later I have added 10 more pounds and have done nothing for my health. Now I have high blood pressure, more body pain and have found myself in my bed longer than I want to be. I noticed an email from SparkPeople and decided to rededicate myself to my HEALTH not to losing weight but to being healthy. My biggest issue is thinking I am doing this to lose weight, it becomes daunting as soon as I think about it and worst yet if I look in the mirror. So 2013 is about eating HEALTHIER, moving MORE, and CELEBRATING me. I am not only unhealthy in my eating habits but as well as my spiritual, emotional and financial life. This is a journey for me not just a goal. THIS IS MY LIFE, I am 48 years in four months, 2 months off 50, I HAVE TO CHANGE, MY LIFE HAS TO CHANGE. HERE IS TO A PHENOMENAL JOURNEY emoticon
