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. 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!

Hi, I started Sparks People last week. I have been on a band wagon and feeling really good about getting started again at working off around 50 pounds. I have had a lot of years, 12 to be exact since I have been fit. I am now 41 and am feeling run down and unmotivated to do the things I use to like doing. I am a big gardener and I enjoy fishing, hunting and canoeing. I am looking forward to starting school to finish my LPN this July. I have a year of clinicals to complete my program. I am currently unemployed and have been since January. I am glad to have found a place I can keep track of my progress along with meet some people who can inspire me to keep going. Hope to get biking soon. I plan to ride bike with my husband to his work maybe starting next week. The weather will play a big role in that. My husband works 8 miles from home across town. I think we can both do this as long as we take it slow and steady. I am looking forward to doing something good for both of us together.
