Hello California!

Just moved to CA, and ready to make it home! Used to be fit ... want to be fit again. Have been keeping a blog on tumblr to help motivate myself, but wanted something a little more private/personal too. Hoping to meet friends locally that I can motivate and that can help motivate me. We're all in this together, after all :)

Thanks for the comment on my page! And welcome to Bakersfield. I've lived here nearly all my life, and although it's not the little town of my childhood, its growth has brought lots of healthy opportunities here.

Good luck on your weight loss journey! Feel free to message me if you have any questions or would just like to chat.

Welcome to California.
Hi, welcome to Sparkpeople. I try to send this message to help folks with the website because I found it a bit difficult in the beginning. I am not anyone special, just someone trying to gain control of my health, just like you. I hope you enjoy this website as much as I do. I have gotten so much out of it. I have met some wonderful folks on this website.
This can feel a bit overwhelming at first, but don't give up.(All the advertising can feel distracting, but it keeps it free for all of us. Just ignore it if you want.)
Explore a little at a time.
Scroll through other member pages, if you see anyone you would like to have as a spark friend, just click the little button at the top and that will add them to your friend list.
If you are confused, ask questions on the Messages Boards, under the Get Help section.
Under the Message Boards tab, check out Sparkpeople Café and the Sparkpeople Game Room. There are a lot of fun running posts on these message boards.
Check your Sparkpoint page and see where you can earn more points. It’s fun to use the points to buy and give the ‘goodies’ to yourself or to other Sparkpeople.
Be kind to yourself and take it one day at a time. Expect set backs and just ride them out.Don't compare yourself to others.Don’t ever give up, instead, reach out. That is what we are all here for.
I promise, it gets better, one day at a time.
I like to think of daily food control like the pages of a book. One page (day) is not very thick, hardly seems worth the effort, but when you close the book the thickness of all the pages (days) together really have an impact. It is up to you to decide if the story is a good one.
