Hiding Behind Fat Stops Today

I'm MelissaI am a Jewelry designer but I feel like a fraud. I don't feel like a designer because my body is so out of control. I have been using my weight to keep me safe. My weight has been holding me and my business back since 2005. Hiding behind fat stops today.
I was engaged 1.5 years ago and I haven't set a date yet because I don't want to be a fat bride. It's really sad. Now when people ask when I'm getting married I just say we'll probably elope. I really do want a wedding though. ...

Happy New Year and congrats on taking the first step to becoming a healthier you! I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

emoticon

If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

emoticon

Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
