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. 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!

Sounds like the problems I have been having for many years now. I want (need) to lose about 25 pounds - getting to "old age" - will be 62 in under a week - but I feel like I am still in my 30's! Worried that my left hip is starting to "fail me" - but I refuse to give in! Several weeks ago, as my husband and I were eating - I finished - WAY ahead of him - and he told me then (he is SKINNY!) that he ENJOYS his food. That got me to thinking - I grap potato chips, M&M's, cheese - and gobble down probably 300 calories without even blinking an eye - did I really ENJOY it? NO!! So, I have decided that for my health's sake I will learn from my husband - and really THINK about what I am eating. So, next time you begin to eat - really think about what you are eating - - hope that this will help! Good luck!!!!

Really, I want to make this work, but so far I haven't been able to curb my bad habits, even as much as I was the first time around with SP. I get right in there and work out, which is the easy part for me. When it comes to food though, I know I'm eating for comfort, I just don't know how to stop.
