Thanks for the welcomes and kind words. I appreciate every one of them. And Kathy, I took your idea and started a sparks page today -- and the response has been phenomenal. I can't thank you enough for steering me in the right direction.

Happy to be getting to know you all.

Hi and welcome to the team...I do have another suggestion...if you can do it...a Spark page is a very useful tool on this site...it's kind of like a picture of you, so we can post encouragement, goodies and support you in many ways. Join on the chat thread and let us get to know you.

Thanks for the encouraging words. I will take your words to heart. I am always extremely hard on myself. Your idea of being "gentle" is more than likely the right way to approach this new phase of my life. Thanks again

Welcome, Avon! You've been through an awful lot, so be gentle with yourself in the beginning of this process.

I'm 55 and have to lose over 200 lbs., but I have to tell you that Spark is one of the best things that's happened to me in YEARS!

I just joined and find myself a bit confused, wary and excited at the same time. I have well over 100 pounds to lose, but I am concerned I have waited too long as I am so overweight I have become isolated (and probably depressed)as well as suffering from some major difficulties with my knees/legs/etc. I am 59 but feel 80. I can barely move around more than 4 or 5 minutes without becoming totally exhausted. I am recently widowed, recently out of work and also recovering from a car accident. But despite it all I am wary but hopeful that this site will help.

My future daughter in law told me about this site and I must say, just from the short time I have looked it over, I very impressed. I want to try to make this work and I am hopeful that these teams can be a good source of support, ideas and contact.

Thank you for listening (reading)
