My name is noelle-christine, i'm a 4th year college student and after changing degrees 3 times and taking a semester off and switching schools it's like i'm starting over. I know that God is working miracles in my life every day and losing weight is just another miracle in progress. I love art, i'm a vegetarian (vegan except for honey),and i am a christian. I have a genetic disease called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. My joints dislocate, mainly my knees and shoulders, and because of this i can't play any sports, run, jump, or do any sort of strenuous activity. I also have insulin resistance, hypoglycemia, PCOS, PTSD, degenerative disc disease in my lower back, in 2007 i broke my back and now have two herniated discs, i have sprang both ankles and wrists numerous times, i have cracked my right wrist 3 times, my right elbow 1 time, my growth plate in my right ankle 1 time, and my pinky finger on my right hand. My childhood wasn't the greatest but it has made me who i am today. I don't enjoy living life with all the medical problems i have but they have made me realize that life is not something that you take for granted. Life is precious and every medical problem you learn to live around in your life will not hinder you but make you stronger. Because of my life i know that am stronger than had i walked down the easy road with nothing to overcome.

    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 - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    There are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site.


    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.


    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!
