It's time to make a change!

I'm a wife, a mom and a nurse. I have two boys, Christian and Michael. Michael has Down Syndrome and he's the reason I became a nurse. I'm also an advocate for children with Special Needs. I have a WONDERFUL husband and a pretty great life :)

For me, its not so much about weight loss but more about getting fit. I've done the weight loss thing before. And while I'm not really fat, I need to get fitter. I want to be healthy and have more energy. So here we go!

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

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!

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.

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!

Welcome to SP! I'm like you - not quite 5'4" and got up to 154. I also carried it well, I guess, but boy do I look and feel different now. This site is amazing - I can't believe how much it's helped me. Ask for help from everyone and good luck!
