emoticonWelcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
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, make your Sparkpage if you havenít, 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

Hello everyone,
My name is Reba, I found out about Spark People from the Huffington success stories, I literally sat for hours reading (stuffing my face with popcorn) emoticon and feeling both inspired and worried. Inspired, because I saw so many women just like me that made such a big change and the results was amazing... worried because here I am 295 lbs, can barely walk up a flight of stairs without gasping for air, stuffing my face with popcorn knowing that this will require a lifestyle change.

I said to myself if they can do it so can I, I signed up on Spark and joined my local gym with the intention of going in tomorrow... well, I am soooo SCARED and NERVOUS!!! I don't know where to begin. I am going for 5am and hoping to stay until 6am hopefully the gym will be empty that early...


But my mind is filled with the "what ifs"

What if I can't do 30 mins on the treadmill? what if the gym is filled with only SKINNY people?? What if this .. what if that...

And while Spark seems to generate great success and tools there is so much I am not sure where to begin, I know this for sure.. I refuse to remain at this weight, I am going to try my best, and I am looking forward to being healthy.



I have learnt that flossing is important, laughter is essential, perfection is impossible, change is constant.
