Hi, Debi! Hope you are having a decent holiday... and exploring SparkPeople. There is a lot of information to take in on the site, but you'll find you can tailor it to suit YOU! Take what you need, leave the rest. It is a work in progress... getting healthier, feeling better about yourself. If you can get your mind in gear, the body will eventually follow. Life ebbs and flows. Motivation will, too. SparkPeople will give you all the tools you need to accomplish whatever you desire. There are people here who care. They really do! You will find your niche. Be patient with yourself! I am trying to get into the grove of Sparking, too. I'd love to see what 200 looks like on the scale! I have RA. I am learning to FLY...Finally Love Yourself. I have a lot of old baggage that is cluttering my whole being. But I have made the commitment to become the best I can become. There is always hope, there are always options. We just have to be open to receiving. Together we can handle whatever life throws us. There IS strength in numbers... there are literally THOUSANDS of people who will support us on this journey! I just bought The SPARK, and it looks like it is going to be a really good guide to becoming healthy in all areas of my life. Keep hanging in there! You are welcome to write me anytime!
I am hoping you are still in pursuit of a healthier future...Am concerned that you've been quiet for a couple of days...Hoping you were just involved in the holiday and not that you've given up...Please keep up the fight...because the prize is SO MUCH worth it. Blessings. And prayers. Cynthia 1951 days ago
