emoticonWelcome back to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by returning!
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. We are here to keep everyone motivated.
Iíve found that the best source of motivation on spark is posting, asking questions, and finding new friends that are in this together. We are all on this journey of a healthy live style, so your not alone in this. People need someone to believe in them. They need to know that if they take that first step out of their comfort zone, someone will be supporting them all the way. With small words of encouragement, with just a little extra time, that someone could be you. In some cases, others may just be unaware of their true abilities and potential.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!
Sheila

You sound like me - I'm just getting back into it after some time away myself. I have maintained so I'm happy about that; however, something I learned was that I have not yet changed, if I am to ever change. Not logging on here, not tracking my food immediately took me right back to my old habits of large quantities of unhealthy foods, irregular meals and zero exercise. I'm honestly not sure how I did maintain. So, I encourage you, just as I'm encouraging myself right now, to stay with it and participate on Sparkpeople! You know it works!! emoticon emoticon

Hello:
Hope all is well. I am doing okay and have not been with SP for a long time. I received a nice birthday wish from some one from SP and wanted to log in. It is nice to be here again and hope to continue to do so.
Lfie has been okay so that is good. I am sure I missed out on a lot of new and different things, but that is okay. What was then is not the most important..it is what will be now. I do weigh myself once a week which is good and all I can do is try. My weight has been staying pretty much the same..not bad. I want to lose a bit more.
That is all for now..good luck to you.
Cyrella :)
