Welcome to Sparkpeople!

I want to congratulate you on making this journey. I began my own journey a few years ago and though my pace has been slow I have lost over 100 pounds! You can have success too! I am 57 years old.

This is a great place to get healthy! There are so many tools, resources, and encouraging people to help you on your journey to "Health & Fitness". Be sure to poke around the site and try the nutrition and fitness trackers, Spark Recipes, Daily Spark, health articles, and secrets.

Joining a team will help you meet like-minded people that share similar life situations or goals. You can join mine to start. I share many helpful tips, recipes and insights from my own journey so you too can benefit. The DAILY CHAT section has lots of helps.

Be sure to read member blogs as there is a wealth of information there. You can start with one of mine:

Hi, I am 52 and for the last 2 years was at a feel-good weight of 115. I felt great, had energy, no tummy, even though I am hypothyroid. Suddenly, at 52 all things change. 7lbs heavier - definitely not a big number, but it feels SO SO different. Gained in 1 year. I was 115 last April. Thighs bigger, tummy... even my hair is different. In a nutshell I feel suddenly matronly and unattractive. M husband thinks I am crazy. Wants me to gain weight, not lose. I think he is crazy! I can't seem to lose an ounce. I try to jog but I am just wiped out. good grief! 7lbs seems like 20!! I am even trying Amberen to help with weight loss (and the moodiness) though I am not going thru menapause. so, since my daughter is on Sparks I thought I would check it out as well.
