Starting my journey today

Friday, May 24, 2013

Today is May 24, 2013 and I want to change. I like the person that I am but, I just don't like that there is so much of me. My health is another concern. My joints, especially my knees, hurt every day and I am too young to feel this way. So that is what brings me here to Spark People. HELP!!!! I have about 150 lbs to lose. I know it is going to take a long time to lose it all, after all it took a long time to gain it. But I want to start the journey one day at a time.

    emoticon to SP you have come to the right place. I think you will find tons of helpful information and just as many wonderful people .You will get hugs and nudges along your journey. If you do not give up you will have friends that will stick by your side through your entire trip. They will not judge but, only help and love you along the way. They have either been right where you are or are standing side by side. You need a hug or a rant look me up

    If you work hard, you can definitely make this a success. Start with a few small steps and you will start seeing progress before you know it. Don't quit, just keep putting one foot in front of the other and do it OVER AND OVER AGAIN until one day you wake up and discover you are much closer to the goal.

    Hey there-- it's wonderful to start with SP , use all the info we have here to get an idea of what suits you. There are articles and quizzes -get points and move up the ladder. But most of all start... go slowly... it will happen when you just keep doing it, there will be ups and downs.

If you want help or just to rant we are here for you. We have all ranted and yelled and scream and cried our way thru and so many others are here to encourage you.

Let me know if I can help at all :)

    Welcome to Sp, you've found a great place for help and support in your journey. I'd encourge you to make small changes, 1 at a time and to check out Indygirl's page.

You can do this.

Good luck!!!!
