emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

Hi all!

I'm hoping a few people might be able to welcome me back into the fold after quite a few years away from sparkpeople!

I'm Sugarplumbelle, 21 year old university student from Canada. Back in 2009, I weighed in at 201.8 lbs at 5'5. I had prediabetes, low self esteem, high blood pressure...And I was still in highschool. I started getting serious about healthy living after I didn't fit into my Christmas Formal Dress and my mom had to run out and buy me an XL the day of the dance. Talk about an embarrassing moment...

I lost about 55 pounds over the next 7 months, right before starting my first year of university. Over the past four years I've been within about 140-155 pounds at 5'5. I just finished my most stressful year of school balancing school and a full time job, so I feel ready to go back into "weight loss mode" instead of the maintenance I've been having for the past few years.

SW: 201.8 lbs
CW: 145 lbs
GW: 125

Thanks all :)
