New Here

Friday, May 25, 2012

I came across "Spark People" completely by accident. However, after reading one blog entry, I knew that I needed a community like this to keep me motivated!

I am 32 years old, unmarried and really want to loose my extra poundage. I am tired of telling people "I am not fat, I am fluffy!" I am also tired of all the stares I get when I am in town. I know that I can do this, with the right motivation, the right encouragement and of course, with my faith.

I look forward to being on and I know that I have found a good thing!

    Welcome! I'm new here too! I can't believe how encouraging everyone is. You and I have a lot in common. I am an educator too, I'm 32, I live in North Carolina, and I have a lot of weight to lose! I think we could be good encouragement for one another in our journey emoticon
