Merry Meet Jenni! and welcome to SparkPeople!
You have taken a momentous step to improve your life by joining SP. Here is an abundance of valuable advice, tools, support and empathy at your fingertips - any time of the day or night.
I've found that unlike a lot of other weight loss programs, tools, strategies, etc., the longer you stay with SP the more enjoyable it becomes & therefore it is soooo much easier to maintain the momentum and make some real progress with improved nutrition, healthier lifestyle & weight loss.
Even though my weight loss doesn't seem to have progressed since I started with SP - mainly because I currently don't own any scales to weigh myself - my clothes are getting looser & my energy levels are improving. The energy is really important for me because I have been unable to work since Sept 2009 due to severe chronic fatigue & major depression.
You might also like to consider joining the Fatigue Support Group.
Best wishes for a successful journey! Wendy from Wollongong, Australia
