Hi Everyone,

I am a 26 year old female from New Brunswick, Canada. This is my third time joining SparkPeople and I want to stick to it this time.

I currently work at a Call Center but I have graduated from Funeral Services and someday hope to return to my chosen profession - Funeral Directing and Embalming.

I love country music, baseball, computers, some TV shows - "The Dr Oz Show", "Lock Up", "Lockdown", "Intervention", "Oprah", "America's Got Talent", "Desparate Housewives" and "Brothers & Sisters" just to name a few.

    Thanks for remaining a part of the New Brunswick Sparkpeople Team. I'm so glad to see someone who has been here for a while and done so well still involved. I'm inspired to stick with the task at hand just by your perserverence and commitment in returning for a 3rd try. I know we will make it to our goals if we all stick together, we are hardy NBer's it doesn't matter what life throws at us we dig our way out just like the last snow storm the weight will eventually go away with a little hard work. emoticon

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
