Hello and Ali!! My name is Angela and I have been on this site since June. Congratulations on taking your first steps to a brand new you and a new weight loss experience where you are supported by en entire community of like-minded people. This website is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues.
I am sure there is a SparkPeople Team for Germany somewhere! Search through the teams and see if you can find one in your area. I have never been to any meetings for anything and I have lost over 42 pounds in 6 months, so I know you can do this. This is actually the first time I have not used medication or diet food to lose weight. I just walk, walk, walk, and do some exercising at home... and it works!
So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!
