Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining! I've been a member a little over 4 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! Sheila

Welcome to Spark People. I understand how you feel at least in regards to the eating part as I am a compulsive overeater. I have lost a total of 30 pounds since starting this journey. It is a challenge each and every day. There are many groups and teams you can join to help you on your way. HUGS

I am new to Sparkpeople....just joined yesterday and so far so good....I am hoping to connect on some of these boards....I need some friends along the journey. I would love to break my bad eating habits....I hear people mention the word hungry and it always hits me.....I am never hungry and I am never full....I just constantly crave....I blame it on the fact I am a former smoker but it has been 24 years for pete's sake!! I just replaced one habit with another...5 years ago my 53 year old sister dropped dead from a suddent and unexpected heart attack...I am still reeling from that and fearful for my own health....my dad is a healthy 90, my mom a healthy 80 but I need to get a grip....please help....
