Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes!

Welcome :) I'm so glad you stopped by! On January 16, 2011, after spending the past 5 years of my life on autopilot, I decided once and for all that enough was enough and joined SparkPeople. I have some serious changes to make in my life over the next few months. Changes that will, no doubt, be very difficult and challenge everything I've got; however, the prospect of finding the person I lost - my true self - drives me. I look forward to sharing my journey with you.

Thanks for the comments on my blog! I do the monthly goals to keep myself accountable - and remind myself of all the work I'm doing and progress I'm making. Unfortunately, it's all too easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day stuff and/or the scale and not realize how much I've really accomplished. The goal blogs also help me focused and on track.

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

Congrats on taking the first 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.

emoticon

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!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I'm a better cook than I used to be, I need to work on prepping onions/veggies faster and I'm not an expert (but better).
I hope you get to learn to cook.
