Hi Micayla,

Lovely to have you aboard and I feel sure you will be able to access the abundance of information and motivation in here.

Please feel free to go over my spark page and blogs and if you feel I might be in a position to help you out a bit then give us a shout.

Hi Micayla and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change! Get familiar with everything here and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. I am adding some links here to teams you may find helpful, no you don't have to join any/all and please don't think I am pushy, good luck on your journey

Hi Micayla, welcome to SparkPeople. You have come to the right place. You will find so much support and advice here about general weight loss but also about your specific health issues too. The best thing is to join a group for people with the same conditions. If you go to the Community tab and click on Spark Teams you can do a search. It makes a real difference when you can talk to others going through the same thing.

Well done on taking the first step and joining the site, you can do this!!

Hey guys!
My name is Micayla, I'm from Wisconsin.. and I am in need of losing weight. I'm 20 years old and have been overweight my whole life. I have tried diets before.. but literally stopped after about a week. I know that I need to change, and I want this to be my time to shine! This isn't going to be an easy task. With medical conditions such as Lupus, Myalgia, PCOS and PAC, I am really going to have my work cut out for me. I'm looking for all motivation, I can't give up this time. Go ahead and shoot my a message, we can share stories and struggles. I'm an open book!
