Hello there! I am so glad you decided to join us here on Spark. This community is invaluable to me, and I love the tools offered for free on the site. I use the Nutrition tracker and that does keep me accountable. I am not perfect by any means, and I have a lot to learn but it is so nice to know there is support here and we can rely on each other. So if you need some support, don't hesitate to give me a holler!

I came back to Spark People after joining two years ago and not using the tools available on the site, including what seems to be many successful people's secret weapon - the valuable spark people community. So here I am today, officially saying hello to the community. I posted my first blog entry yesterday. I finally 'got it out there' for myself. That alone, was an amazing personal triumph for me- to talk about why I am here, my severe health issues, what I am trying to accomplish, and publicly announce (even if it's only me reading my posts) what I am doing so that I can hold myself accountable.
I feel scared and uncertain, but hopeful. I am embracing my loss, and change. My sincere best wishes for anyone in the same boat, may you find what you are looking for, and may you have all the strength and determination you require close at hand through each step of your journey.
Peace, love and light to each of you. May we all find our own success and celebrate it.
