Welcome :)
Have you found your way around the site yet?
I see you have a lot of challenges to work through right now. I wish you luck
You know you're right about the emotional baggage. You don't need any of those, just accept the past and let it all go, slip away from you. I'm talking out of experience. :)
There's an exercise you can do, you know. Take a glass and fill it with water. Hold it in your hands and count to 10. It's light and easy to hold, isn't it? Place it back where you took it. Now raise that glass again, but this time, hold it for 5-10 minutes. Is it heavier now? How does that make you feel? Put it back again, then hold it again one last time. Hold it for as long as you can, and I mean over 30 minutes. Is it unbearable? Do your muscles hurt? Can you take it any longer?
Remember that this used to be a light weight which didn't cause you any pain.
This is what happens when we cling on to unecessary stuff, instead of handling it as best as we can, and then let it all go.
I wish you luck and a lot of succeses!

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!

Hi - I just want to introduce myself as I am new here and checking things out. I am so excited to get started on this journey! I have a lot of weight to lose and a lot of emotional baggage that needs to go as well. I recently quit my job--life is to short to go through what I was going through. I am sort of looking for another job, but have also decided that I really need to take some time for myself and work on taking better care of myself and strive to fix the mess I have made of my health. So here I am getting my feet wet and getting ready to dive in! I have 75+ lbs to lose and have been overweight since high school. This is not my first attempt at losing weight, but it is my first in a very long time. I guess it finally clicked in my head that I need to take care of myself & that I have to do it - no one else can do it for me. The time is right and I am ready. Wish me luck! I wish you all the best.

Tomorrow is never promised. Make every day count.
