Hi Dawn!

I am so glad you've joined the team!

Sorry to hear that you are overwhelmed. As the others have said, take it slowly, and ask questions if you are confused by anything. It becomes second nature after awhile, trust us.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Hi Dawn from Peoria,

Glad you're joining us. Spark can be a little overwhelming at first, but take your time and see all the wonderful tools we have at our disposal. There's no hurry!

Good luck on your jouney... emoticon

Hi Dawn, Welcome to this great team. If you mean Peoria, IL I am just 20 miles east of you. Feel free to Sparkmail me if you would like.

This site can be overwhelming, so take it slow and feel your way. As someone said, we were all new once. Good luck on your journey.

Hi, Dawn. Yes, the site is a bit daunting. I'd suggest starting slowly. Spend time reading and begin with a goal which you know you can reach. Being successful at one thing is a good way to jump start yourself into another.
I had to go gluten free and did it cold turkey. It was months and months before I did anything else. You've made the first step. Come join with one of the most awesome teams on the whole site.
We keep our faith in the mix, and I think that helps. Remember too, no question is a dumb question. Good luck and God bless.

Hi, I'm Dawn from Peoria. I'll be turning 41 soon and I've been overweight for most of my life. I've always allowed my weight and confidence issues to hold me back. I want this weight loss journey to also be about getting fit, gaining confidence, and discerning Gods' purpose for my life. I'm a little overwhelmed by everything this web sight has to offer, but I'm looking forward to learning.
