Unfortunately, it's not temporary. I'm an RN. So in Michigan, not even medical people are safe. But I have leads and 2 weeks severance pay. The Lord is taking care of me. Rough couple of days but I don't want it to kill the good work I've started here. Thanks, Anna.
Hello! Glad find more "losers" with my age and goals. I live in Michigan, just joined SP at beginning of May through a group at work. Have lost 10+ lbs. Laid off from job last Wed and lost my support group. Fighting the stress right now. Looking for encouragement. Glad to share any encouragement I can. Need to be accountable to someone. Thanks for your help. Will check out team goals, etc as they come up. Check out my SparkPage.
Welcome!! I sure admire your determination with the exercise--I think that has been a big downfall for me. But I am getting back at it again.
This is the first team I came to when I re-started Spark in January and it has given me great support and encouragement. And the people are great!! Please jump right in the chats and let us know how you are doing. We are all here to help each other.

New person here. Trying to figure this out but it looks like a lot of fun. :) I am 50 yrs old and I have way over 100 lbs to lose. I am taking it one day at a time. One month ago I joined a gym. Just marched my happy butt right in there. I couldn't ride that bike for over 2 min and thought I would die! Today I rode it 25 min. I also do some strengthening for 45 min. I hired a personal traner and use him once a week. I go to the gym 6days/wk. I think I am getting addicted to it. Imagine.....LOL
