Welcome to SparkPeople! I placed a topic on the SparkTeam "Sista... I've Got your back" page, to encourage members to give a shout out to you and our other new members. Feel free to add me as a SparkFriend, and to ask for any help or support that you might need. If you prefer, you can also send SparkMail to InSh8p as a Private Message. Again, any way that we can help you reach your goals is something that most of us in the SparkPeople Community would be glad to assist with.
