Welcome to the Teachers Learning to Lose team! Looking forward to seeing you here. Spark research has shown that people who use the threads and posts tend to lose more weight on average than those who do not. So what are you waiting for? Start posting and get your weight loss going!
Oh Sherilyn, Doctors should be made to take sensitivity awareness classes every year. I am sorry that you have had doctors tell you such things. I am one of the slow losers here as I have a few medical conditions that I fight against to lose weight. Sparks People is a great resource and tool. There is a ton of support and encouragement here for all those things you are working against to help you be successful in working on a healthy lifestyle. There are message boards or teams (public forums) that you can join to learn that you will find to be quite friendly and accepting of your journey. Posting on these boards will become talking to friends so hopefully you will feel an increasingly courage to get involved. * There is a "Getting Started Guide" under the Quick Links on the right sidebar of this page. You will get a great deal from that guide as it will take you and step by step set up of goals and customizing your Sparks experience. Good luck and thank you for the job you do everyday! I was in need of a special teacher to help me learn how to read when I was in grade school way back when, I had dyslexia and my family moved shortly after I was diagnosed (in 2nd grade) and I remember teaching teacher what dyslexia looked liked and then had to privilege of having a very special teacher who knew how to teach me and improved my reading levels 8 grade levels in 3 semesters in a public school program. So it's is people like you that have helped my life become such a success! So a special thank you from me. 1299 days ago
