Hi LIZ, I see you must be new here. Thank you for posting on my blog of March 1 and the recent motivational BLOG. LIZ, the most important thing you need is the community. I wanted to keep myself to myself but I could not learn anything. I still had no-one to tell me how to do things with Spark. The other friend i wrote about advised me to open up my page so people can get to write comments , encourage you and give you support. I opened up my page and there were wonderful people here all ready to help me. I was told if i did not like it that way I could just close my page. I love it this way. I do not collect lots of friends because i talk too much. I let people come and go on my page and once I know they will talk to me and not sent mt the little emoticons, then i know i have found a real friend. I like it that way and I get more encouragement. Just by posting a blog that I barely thought about over 500 people have commented. I could not keep up with that many but thy can all get back to me if they need to. Without the tracker I would be nowhere. I use it every day, it is a great tool. Take care I hope you enjoy your teams. HUGS Pat in Maine. 1537 days ago
That is, if I am lucky , I will do the work that it takes. Its not my first rodeo, been there , done that lots of times before. Just hope this is the one that counts. I haven't given up yet, got the rest of my life. Right now I just need the support that everyone gives me and hopefully I will fit right in and do the rest. (The work, too) I have a goal and that is the first step. Tomorrow will be the next step, the first one is the hardest. How did I ever get where I am now? Does everyone ask themselves this question? My journaling is in place and thats always been hard for me to do. This time will be different. I am still finding my way around this information we all have access to and I think its a great place to find any thing you need. 3147 days ago
Welcome to SparkPeople and welcome to team 50+ members with 50-99 pounds to lose. Unfortunately, it will take more than luck; it will be work - but you have the desire so I know you can do it. Best wishes.
