Welcome Melissa! So nice to have you here. I'm relatively new too!
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt

That is such a moving story. I think you know how important it is for you to keep up what you have started.
I knew Spark had some new trackers, but I probably haven't been paying attention. Yours is one of the new ones. I just might try it. It might give me the extra motivation I need.
I am looking forward to getting to know you. Be sure to stop by some of the other threads and participate.

My name is Melissa and I am new to SparkPeople....Been doing it faithfully for a week now, but did not get on the computer till now! was recently blessed to meet Chris Powell from Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition. It was a meeting that was unexpected and he gave his time to me, sought me out, it was a God thing! He asked me one question that turned my heart around, finally. He asked me "Who are you, Melissa?" I replied, "I am mom, a fat, lazy mom"..with tears...He grabbed my shoulders and responded "Do you know what I see? You are a beautiful dancer, with A LOT of energy to burn up!"....I cried even harder! He talked with me for quite a while and two things he said (besides the above), have been written on my heart. One, he said, "You can do ANYTHING for 10 minutes, so I want you to exercise 6 days a week for 10 minutes, because YOU CAN DO IT!" 2nd, he said something that I still laugh at "Melissa, you are NOT FAT ENOUGH to be on EMWLE, if you wanted to be on the show, then you would have to gain weight, and I WILL NOT let you gain weight!" that was the FIRST time I have EVER been told I was not fat ENOUGH! Would love to make some new friends/support help here on SP!
