Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining! I've been a member a little more than two 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! Sheila

Hi everyone :) I've joined Sparkpeople after hearing soooo much about it that I finally had to hop in here to see what it was all about. I'm currently on a journey to lose another 80 lbs (I've lost 105 already WOO HOO). My program of choice is a combination of WW Points and high protein, lower carbs. I know - how do I mix them you ask? Easily. I typically fit a 100 calorie high protein shake (with zero point fruit added) each day so that I'm sure I"m getting the right amount of dietary protein and fiber. I'm not much of a meat eater and get lots of my good proteins from egg whites, legumes, etc. I walk 10-15 mins every day on a treadmill and since Jan 10 I'm down approx 35 lbx. My goal is to lose another 15 by Halloween. Just thought I'd pop in and say hi!!
