Welcome to Sparkpeople! So glad you found us here and so glad you were willing to share you post on the Cafe Message Board.
I think we all have that sense of hopelessness at times. After all, we have a big challenge and lifestyle changes ahead of us. That is very overwhelming. We went on a journey when we gained weight...now we go on a BETTER journey to a healthier lifestyle! I'm here for you and to help support you on your journey!!
By the way, nice to meet you. I'm Jenn, 30, and was at my heaviest last June. Slowly but surely the weight is coming off. I always look at it as even 1 lb is saving my life...In fact, I'm saving my life one day at a time.
Hi, Well your're not much older than me, I'm 55 LOL, and still have about 75 pounds to lose. Have lost 75 over the past 4 years with SP, gained 15 back with menopause, & now am continuing the battle!!
SP is a wonderful site with all the tools & support you need to help you reach your goals!! And IT'S FREE!!!
Congratulations on deciding to take care of YOU! I hope you enjoy your time here & that it helps you in reaching all your goals!!
Be sure to use the trackers and STAY CONNECTED no matter what-we're all in this together & it really helps knowing others are going thru the same things you are!!
Feel free to stop by my Spark page anytime-I'd love to hear how things are going for you on your journey to a healthier you!!
I also have 150 lbs to lose, and I was starting to think I was alone. We can do this one week at a time. I've lost two pounds so far but more importantly, I'm paying attention to what goes in my mouth and I've hit my exercise goals. 1345 days ago
Being here is the first step - I really think it is going to make a difference - and that's why I'm here too. The climb to the height of a mountain - it always starts with a first step. This is your first step - and we will be here to cheer you on as you climb that mountain.
It won't be easy - and it will take time - but it will be so worth it - and you are worth it.
