Hi .. I have spent way too many years being comfortable with my large size and due to pending health issues, I have decided to finally get my eating and health in order .. I really enjoy the sparkpeople web site although I am just new to it .. I like to participate.

Also, I have just gotten married this past June for the first time! I had my wedding on my 50th birthday, so now I count anniversaries instead of birthdays :)

I also have the extra challenge of being bipolar, so I have to struggle with medications that have side effects of weight gain as well as I have hypothyroidism .. so my challenges are great ... however nonetheless I still want to be healthy and be able to enjoy my future retirement years with my new husband.

Nice to meet everyone.

It's come to my attention that you all may not be getting new post notifications from Bipolar Mania! Here is a way to fix that, if you want to. I'd love to see more involvement. Please check to see if you are getting Bipolar Mania! information. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Click on the orange tab 'community' at the top of this page. Click Spark teams. On the top of your list of teams it will say 'manage my team emails/settings'. Click on it. & You can fix which notifications you want/get for EACH of tour teams in there. Put a check IN the boxes of notifications you want from each team individually. Let me know if that helps.

I would like to start some new threads & challenges so I'm looking for ideas & suggestions from members of Bipolar Mania! To help! I want to add games & other thing you all are interested in. Probably not weight loss/exercise per se because there seems to be plenty of that support in other teams. I'm hoping to be more about socializing 7 always knowing you have a safe place to share & offer help if you can. If there is enough interest in weight loss I will be willing to do that as well. Please send your ideas to me through a SparkMail if you'd like to participate!

Thanks a lot!
Lisa

I am so happy you joined Bipolar Mania. Please come in & introduce yourself. Participate on the boards! We have a small team, but we're very active & good friends! I TRULY believe that Bipolar is a gift! My life hasn't been all roses & balloons so it's not like I 'don't get it'!!! I look forward to knowing you. If you need anything please reach out to me. I am here for you!

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell

Get ready for a healthy week, Sparkfriend! You know what you want, and you know what you need to do in order to make it happen...so just do it! Push yourself, even if you don't feel like it...because you really are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
