Go Dawgs!!!!!!

Hi everyone. I am a single mom of a college Senior, originally from the Atlanta suburbs, but luckily now living in Clarkesville, Georgia. I teach middle school Math, and am co-owner of a cabin rental business in the North Ga. Mountains. I have lots of weight to lose and am looking forward to the journey towards better health.

Hey thanks for the thumbs up! Is it cold where you are in Georgia? I was born in Savannah, but unfortunately, my d*mn yankee (as my grandmother called him) father moved us to Ohio when I was very young. :)

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

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!

emoticon

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.

emoticon

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.

emoticon

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!

emoticon Happy Two-Year SPARKVERSARY. emoticon

Staying with this for two years is a HUGE accomplishment, because you know how many others began when you did and they QUIT. What you have done is just wonderful.
So happy YOU kept working on your goals and loved yourself. Bless your heart. Next year will be even better! emoticon

Hey Lady. Thanks for adding me as a friend. I've done the same. Also, congratulations on the awesome progress you've made. I'm kind of at a standstill with a stress fracture in my foot and unable to hike, but hopefully in a couple of months I'll be back on the trail. Happy hiking to you!
