Time to make a change

After having spinal surgery to replace two disks in my neck 5 years ago, and my doctor refusing to let me do anything for 18 months after surgery, I gained more weight than I would like and need to make a change in my life. Get more active again and get back in shape.

Welcome to the San Antonio SparkTeam. We are a fun bunch just looking to support, empower, encourage, motivate, lift up one another. (I tried thinking of more adjectives there but my brain started to hurt and I had to stop).

I recommend you just jump on in and start being involved. We have lots of great blogs to read, posts to review and friends to make. Enjoy your time here with SparkPeople (however long it lasts - although long term is a good answer) and remember ---

We are all on a journey and together we can achieve more success than alone.
