Go to the help section and leave a question about the DVD download on one of the threads.

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!

Hi, I am a new member who joined several months ago. I lost 5 pounds but did not get serious about weight loss until October. I went to a health fair and got a high reading afte eating a banana and even higher glucose reading after a carb luncheon. So, since my blood pressure was a bit high on the high number, I went to the doctor to reconfirm my previous test in Jan that I have hyperthyroid graves disease. The second test in Oct reconfirmed it so I am now on a diabetic diet and taking meds and losing weight.

The doctor did not give me the thyroid test until I asked for it both times so it pays to buy women's health magazines that tell you to ask for tests. I was on a trial depression med at my doctor's advice and it only made me gain weight after one year and did not help much.

I am learning to destress after having 20 years of chronic stress with too many family responsibilities and years of insomnia. I feel better with learning to focus on my own needs and health. Sparkpeople nutrition and weight tracker are a big help. I just need to add more exercise, yoga and meditation to help calm my anxieties and to get rid of the fatigue. iwth more sleep.

If anyone know s how to download the itune spark people exercise album, let me know. I got a litttle icon after spinning the wheel that I got a free download but I could not download Sparkspeople dvd after I went to the itune website and downloaded the itune player. Looks like it is not free and you have to buy it.
