Welcome back to SparkPeople!! This is a wonderful site with so many resources like articles, trackers, and community SparkTeams to help give you support and keep you motivated. See how many SparkPoints you can get each day and this will help you find and use many of the tools of the site. Make sure you make a SparkPage as this is how you can have people post to you to help inspire you! Please remember this is a marathon, not a sprint. It is not a diet, but a lifestyle change. I am down 70 lbs with SparkPeople and I feel so much lighter and stronger and healthier every day! You can do it! Best of luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle!
Thank you so much for your response. I brought tears to my eyes because I know most of the people I used to know are probably well past their goals. But I know I can do it this time. I am focused and grounded, and God is my rock and fortress. I have to do it for me and my health. I suffer from fibromyalgia, and it is very difficult to get motivated to exercise when I am in so much pain but I do understand the more I exercise the better it will be. So I'm starting today. Thank you again for your kinds words. 1780 days ago
