It took me a bit, about 3 months to get really active on Spark. So don't be discouraged and just keep at it! There is tons of support on here!

Welcome! Yes, this is a great site. Whatever particular struggles you are having you will find folks who can relate and need your input. Lots of ongoing support here. Yes, and great information. Find a team or two (besides this one) that look like they might fit. don't be afraid to quit a team if you find another that fits better. It sometimes takes a while to really find your niche.

I like this team because it has given me a chance to meet other sparkers in person and enjoy outings together.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Hello, I'm Marta and new to this. I want to lose 40 lb of fat, get physically more active and control my diabetes better. My college instructor said to go to this site and join, so here I am! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone meet their goals. A support group is just what I need for mine. Thank you. emoticon
