Just click on my name and it will take you to my Spark Page and then click on add as a friend. I'm looking forward to having you as a Spark friend. You don't have to change every thing at once. That's what I like about Spark. You take everything one step at a time. I started my journey by cutting down my sweet tea consumption and doing chair exercises, due to mobility problems. I know most people may loose weight faster but I'm happy that I'm loosing, even if it is slowly. I joined Spark 2/29/12 and I have lost 32 lbs but I have made a lot of progress in other NSV, non scale victories. My self esteem has gotten better, my energy has increased, and I can now walk around three baseball fields. I also have been taken off one BP medicine and one of my depression medicines. I was on three of each one. My doctors say they are really impressed with my improvements. I hope you give Spark a chance. I know if you give it time you will be glad you did. God Bless and Keep Smiling
Hi Don, Welcome to Sparkpeople! This is a great no-pressure website that is full of everything from inspiring and educational articles, to online friendships, to teams that support individual needs and interests. Oh, and you can track your eating (nutrition) and exercise (fitness) and your weight too! Hahaha. Please give this site a good chance to hold your interest. I'm even opening a new team soon for Multi-Needs families who have both physical and mental challenges. I'm on Disability with Fibromyalgia, and I have a 12 year old son who is Bipolar.
I hope to see you on the message boards!
comment edited because I put down my son as 1/2 - not 12 years old Heehee!
I am sorry you are having a difficult time with the site. It can be quite overwhelming at first. Just break everything into small steps you got your page up, that's good, you have added a few friends that's good. Just take it slow and everything will come together soon. one step at time, one moment at a time, one day at a time, together all the time, that's my motto. Good luck to you my friend and if I can be of assistance just send me a Spark mail..have a great day 1400 days ago
