Welcome to our little part of the world! It's always exciting when another member joins our group and makes our "family" grow. Everyone here is truly nice and I know you'll like them as much as I do.
SparkPeople can help you--it really can. Oh--and use the tools SP provides-- the Nutrition Tracker is fantastic! (you're gonna love that!)... read the articles, they are so insightful, but most of all, post here on the message boards (come join us on our daily chat thread). Talk to others who struggle everyday like we do. I can't even begin to tell you how motivational it's been for me to read and talk to others who understand the unique challenges of trying to losing a lot of weight. The people here have big, warm, loving hearts. They really care.
If you need any help--just ask. One of us is always around and would love to help.
