Welcome! Congratulations on your surgery, I hope it is a successful tool for you. I had Lapband in 2007 but struggled with it, so had revision to RNY last May. I really like this site as the people are very encouraging and supportive. And the recipes are wonderful...I too have nutrition issues and find a lot of protein rich ideas here. The best to you on your journey...feel free to message me anytime if you want to chat. emoticon

emoticonemoticonemoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticonemoticonemoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.

A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.

2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

I am a 47 year old female who is 3 months post Lapband. Because of problems with nutrient numbers, I decided to come here where I can meet others and learn new things in my quest to hopefully lose 125 pounds. Looking forward to talking to you all.
