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!

emoticon SALAD4ME1 and emoticon to SparkPeople...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

My name is Sue, and I have been here at SP for a while now and am finally getting around to introduce myself. I am in My 40's, at home with my hubby, no kids at home but grandkids visit. I have COPD and asthma emoticon I weigh 180 lbs approx. which is a lot on my knees and lungs and have lived a sedentary life for about a yr. now so a lot of the weight is due to sitting around and eating junk food. I used to be a smoker, but am happy to say NOT ANYMORE emoticon it's been over 7 yrs now that I haven't had one puff, oh, boy, do I feel GOOD about that decision!
I am encouraged here at SP and am able to share the SPARK by encouraging others. So far, I am doing ok, I am not beating my self too bad for set backs, keep pushing forward!
Welcome to all you newcomers, please use SP to the fullest you can. I know I am going to also! As I said in a post today at Fast break, TIME to get serious!
