    Hi DSRTDRIFTER! Welcome to Spark! Your comments about being unemployed rang so true to me. We just came off 2 years of unemployment (my husband - I stay home with the kids). I could never have imagined how hard that would be (I gained 66 lbs in that time). Learning how to take care of myself again and live a more 'normal' life took some adjustment. Anyways...welcome to Spark (and the TC team)...glad you are here. :D

    emoticon to SP and to the Tri-City team! I understand all too well how badly thyroid issues can mess a person up. I hope you have gotten your levels under control. It made a HUGE difference for me. Just take it one day at a time, one choice at a time, and you'll find yourself back on track in no time. Be sure and stop by our daily chat board and introduce yourself to the group. The members are all amazing!

    I just stopped on your page to say "HI" and welcome you to Spark. You're in the right place to reach your goals, but promise that you'll stop in every day and log your water, log your veggies and fruit, log your food, log your exercise, and read, and post, and log your water, and write on someone’s page, and read some more, and blog, and log your water, and LEARN that you are not alone, and we're all right here with you! Did I mention that you should log your water?
    WHEW! Ok, I know you're overwhelmed getting to know this site, but use those buttons up there, especially the MY TRACKERS drop down list, and then either the START or MY SPARKPOINTS. Both of these helped me learn about the site, gain momentum and meet new friends.

    Speaking of meeting new friends, this place is like a cocktail party. If you stand in the corner, you won't have as much fun. Make eye contact (or in this place, leave a message on someone's page, or add your opinion to the bazillion conversations going on) to say HI, and you'll meet new friends quick. Oh, yeah, WRITE A BLOG, and keep them coming! It’s the catchy title that brings folks to your page and you'll meet new friends even faster!

    Stick around and come back every day! I was here, and left, and came back when I got serious, and I'm so glad I did. Don't procrastinate like I did, dig in now while you're here!

    Coming here every day adds a great level of support and accountability. Explore, learn, and never be afraid to reach out for help (meaning: post on the OTHER person’s page, not on your own). We're all in this together! Stop by at my page and introduce yourself around to some of my friends too! You'll be glad you did!

    Doing it together, success is inevitable!
