Hi there Maggie and WELCOME to SparkPeople! Your brother Bill did a great thing for you by encouraging you to join Spark. (He's a pretty great guy, isn't he?) I hope you use it to its fullest to guide you along your journey to a healthier YOU. We have our little group for support and please know you can talk to us if you're needing encouragement. I'm sure we have experienced many of the same things and feelings as you. I am here if you need me.
I started June 2007 and by using Spark and some self discovery in the process, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come. * Diet is a dirty word. Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate! 2094 days ago
