Hi Emma.........welcome to the team. As Dawn said, check out the team page and feel free to jump right in anywhere. We are all here to help each other. Good luck in your journey to a new, healthier lifestyle.
My name is Dawn and I am one of the co-leaders here. I have been on SP for almost 2 years and haven't taken this seriously. Therefore, whatever I have lost I have gained. there is something about that "40" mark that seems to make it harder to lose.
Please make sure to check out all the threads here and jump in anywhere. We have some really fun things going on here. Also, you may want to consider buying "The Spark" book. I have it but haven't read much yet. (Am reading something else.) But, I hear it is really amazing!
Tkae care and let me know if I can do anything to help on your lifestyle change.

Hi everyone, I am Emma and I have been a yo yo dieter since I was 12. Sad thing is, looking back, I was never really overweight! I just had really underweight friends! Thru all that "dieting" I HAVE become about 30 pounds over weight. I am in my 40s. I have done every diet. I even have a 4 yr degree in nutrition. I KNOW what to do..it's clearly an emotional , head issue with me.
SO, I am trying the approach of a LIFESTYLE and not so much a diet. Last year I was very successful losing with Jenny Craig...but there is no THINKING or problem solving involved...I am starting to gain it now that I am managing my own portions, etc.
Any hoo..here I am..I don't have much on my "page" yet. Will take me a bit to figure out everything on the website. I LOVE the positive vibe!
I am done with quick fixes..I CAN'T live like that anymore!!!! Emm
