Hi, Regina! I'm returning to SP after an absence of a few months. (So, I'm approaching this as a "new" member. I reset all my goals, etc.) I'm 52, need to lose about 30 pounds, and want to develop a healthier lifestyle. And, like you, I want to get on track before the holidays!
Here's to success!!!

Hi and welcome, Regina! You are a kid - I can say that because I turn 64 tomorrow but I know what you mean because I think - in my head - I'm still 30! That's good to think young and, yes, I've been playing around - on and off Spark and 100 other "diets" - for years but this last May I got serious and came back with a new attitude. I have decided to stop worrying about how fast I lose the weight and just lose it at whatever speed my body wants to go . I am only 5' tall so every pound on me looks like 5 on a bigger person. Right now I am 2 sizes smaller then when I started and I am still working on losing 10 more lbs. It will happen because Spark teaches us how to have a new relationship with food - it is not a diet and so it will last a lifetime if you give yourself the time to learn and change your habits to new and healthy ones Being on Spark over the holidays can really help - read the articles and stay active with your teams and together
