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!

Hello Miss Katy!!!
Welcome and Congratulations!!!!! You know once you identify the problem, you can rock this out!!!!! Well done!!!! While only you can make healthy choices with your food and activity, you ARE NOT alone in this journey! We know what it feels like and what it takes and that's important because you are doing this by yourself...but you have sooo much support here if you need it...and education and tools!! YOU CAN DO THIS! Just decide that failure is not an option and keep going. You will have sucky days and rock star's all part of the journey! If you need anything, just holler! :)
Have an amazing journey and be kind and patient with yourself...but don't accept anything less than your best!

Happiness is a choice! Live with Passion!

This is my third attempt at changing my life. I think I found out why I failed the first two times, and that is because I didn't let anyone help me. I thought I could do it all without any support and I found that isn't true. I'm hoping to make some new friends to better my life and hold me accountable.
Send me a message or friend me on my sparkpage! I can't wait to start the right way this time!
