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!

Hi, Welcome to Spark People. emoticon

You have come to the right place. This is not just about dieting, it is about life style change and finding support from positive people. Check out the Fitness Tracker and Nutrition Tracker features. These are powerful tools to help you get on track and stay on track. Try blogging, too. It is amazing the support you get from others who are struggling with similar issues or who have overcome them.

Jump in, join some teams, and be kind to yourself. Change doesn't happen over night, but it does happen.

Welcome to the new you!

Hi everyone, I am new here! I can't believe I never knew about this place before. I'm really excited to get started! I'm Canadian so luckily I didn't have to deal with the Thanksgiving meal temptations this weekend, although I'm sure they were delicious. Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I am really looking forward to meeting my goals. I used to be 200 pounds, got to 150 on my own, slowly, but its creeped up to 166 over 2 years. I have a problem with food discipline. I am hoping to get to my goal of 140 pounds, Sparkpeople has set Feb 23/2013 as my goal date, which would be awesome. Hopefully I can find some friends here with similar goals, and we can help each other along. I would love to connect!
