to the team from Orange County. I want to apologize for the delayed greeting! I've been way 'too busy' but even tho it's been awhile since you posted your introduction, thought I'd send my welcome message anyway.
For an excellent guide to 'finding your want' and learning how to support your needs, click on this link to 'walk' yourself through the SparkPeople 'system' for losing weight, which starts with figuring out what your motivations are.
Another good start is to get The Spark! book by Chris Downie, which you can buy in the SHOP section - another good place for detailed instructions on how to follow the program is the HEALTHY LIFESTYLE tab at the top and go to the section for SPARKDIET - hope this helps and good luck on your journey!

"Winners are not those who never fail, but those who never quit."
I just read one of the motivational quotes..."a man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse." my problem is how do I find my "want"? I do want to lose wait and look good and be healthy but I can't seem to find motivation for more than a week at a time!!!! I don't know what to do! I feel so utterly hopeless!! :(
