Welcome Marcy! This site is great for making friends and finding a lot of motivation and inspiration. And best part, it's FREE! Lots of luck to you on your journey and make sure you take part in all SP has to offer. Most people agree, logging their food and exercise and joining and INTERACTING on SparkTeams is the best combination to strive towards your weight-loss goals. I know when I do all those things, that's when I tend to lose. If I just do one thing on here or nothing at all, then I lose motivation. So, please join in and ask for advise, if needed.

Hi, Well I am introducing myself. This is all really new to me but look forward to the adventure. I am 43 and have 4 children from 11 to 19. I began gaining weight after my 3rd child. I was able to level out at a decent weight that I wasn't too ashamed about. But then I had to go on medication for fibromyalgia and depression and my weight just shot up. Over a period of a few years I found myself being 115 lbs over weight. I went all the way up to a size 24. Since August of last year I have started to lose weight and am now 70 lbs lighter. I hit a plateau about 2 months ago and want to get around it.
I read about this website in Good Housekeeping and thought I would give it a try. According to SparkPeople I still have 45 lbs to lose although I would be happy with 35 lbs. I have many problems in my life style that is keeping me from losing more weight. I am hoping that SparkPeople will help me make some changes so I can lose the rest of the weight. I also look forward to meeting some of you all.
