Hello. I was just browsing the site, and came across your page. I wanted to take this oportunity to invite you to our team. It is called "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES". It is a forum that my wife (ticklemepink-aka Carol) formed. At first, it was for people with a disabitliy,but now it's expanded to everyone..disability or no disability. As a matter of fact, more then 1/2 of the group do not have a disability. Now, as my tickle puts it so well.. "ITS A PLACE WHERE ANGELS CONGREGATE- TO CARRY ONE ANOTHER TO OUR GOALS"
The link is located on my sparkpage, and the main discussion room is still named "disabiltiies group". People post their successes in life,their obstacles, their personal stories, motivation to succeed, advice, and there's even a thread for jokes. There are many little challenges posted too, to give us a little "spark"
I was hoping that you will click the link, join the group, and come to post in the main room, & maybe share some of your own successes, etc..for us to all get aquainted,better. As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.
We hope to welcome you! (PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you..I know they'll be almost as delighted as we are to welcome you to the" place where people congregate"!! ) I hope you will click on my sparkpage, and add a comment if you need any questions answerred. (or you can sparkmail Carol or myself..we are more then willing to help)
Hi Lisa, Welcome! Your last comment really hit home - I'm guilty of that as well. Years ago I'd have looked forward to attending a wedding or similar function. The last few years it's felt more like, ugh...who am I going to see? And who's going to see me - and all this weight? Now's the time for change! Time to stop letting life pass us by and time to start enjoying it again! We can do this!
