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 haven’t, 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.
I’ve 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!

Today is my first day with Sparkpeople. I am looking forward to getting new recipes, motivation, and learning all kinds of new things! I have battled my weight all of my life. At one time I even lost 60 lbs. and kept it off for 8 yrs. But I let the trials and tribulations of life get me down. Before I knew it I was making excuses not to exercise and returned to drinking sugary sodas again instead of water. Little by little I packed the pounds back on plus more. I am determined to get healthy and to definitely make a lifestyle change this time for the rest of my life! emoticon
