I've been part of the spark website in the past, but life got the better of me and I lost my way. I put everyone else before me. Took care of their worries, solved their problems and along the way I think that I pushed myself into the shadows. Living through others, but not doing what I want to do. I've lost weight successfully in the past, so I know that I have it in me to do so. So, I've decided that it's time that I put myself first and walk out of the sh... Wed, 21 Dec 2011 08:11:31 EST Hello everyone http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x10230x44874169 Hi, I'm Gina. I've just started SparkPeople today. I've struggled with my weight pretty much all my life, and tried and failed many diets. I just want to love the body I have and not avoid mirrors anymore. <BR> <BR> I need a lot of pushing from other people, and I think that's why I failed. I always end up in the mindset that it's not working, so why should I try. I would love to be able to find a group that can help me reach my goals.

I just joined the team. I don't practice Wicca (I don't exact practice anything except trying to be a good person) but I am very interested in Wicca. I have been for many years, but only recently started reading about it. But books can be very dry, so I decided meeting some Wiccans would be a good idea. So hello all! It's nice to meet you.
