Hi Betsy. I hope you are finding everything you need. If not, ask and someone is sure to know the answer and to help you out. Take time and explore both the site and to get to know YOU better - I find that as I read others' posts and blogs as well as when I write my own, I discover new things about myself and new ways to deal with situations that are particularly challenging for me. LOVE YOURSELF, HAVE FUN, enjoy the journey - life is too short to be miserable.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

When I saw your message and name, I was brought back to many years ago. My mom called me Bets all the time. I was looking in her diary the other day and saw "Bets" and Frank (my diseased husband) were here for a visit, etc. I noticed you made the y very light, I figured that you go by Bets???
Anyway, welcome to our group and I wish you the best. It is not always easy but you have to keep thinking of your goal. That helps to keep you from eating that extra helping or maybe dessert. Don't let a goof up once in a while make you give up, just get right back on track. Use all you can of what Spark gives us. Read the success stories, they are always inspiring.
Better go do those dishes that have been waiting for me in the sink! Sending hugs, Betty emoticon emoticon

Remember: When you help someone up a hill, you're a little nearer to the top yourself! That's what I see here, so many willing to help us to the top!

Hi Betsy and welcome. You have come to a great place where there is a lot of support and encouragement. SP has lots of tools, videos, recipes, articles, and great things to help you on this journey. Love yourself, have fun and enjoy your journey. This will be totally different from any other time you went on a D I E T - this is so much more and so much easier - it is a lifestyle change and you start with small changes and add to them as you go along. Keep on - Love yourself - Have fun - NEVER QUIT.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.
