Hello from the Hastings area and welcome to the site. I'm pretty new too but I really like it here and I bet you will too. It sounds like you are serious about making a lifestyle change and this is a really good place to find that support and connection you're looking for. Dana

Hi and welcome from Saginaw! I am just like you and MSWEEZER. I don't have facebook either but I get a lot of support from the Sparkpeople message boards. Like MS said, get your Sparkpage set up. It may be intimidating to do at first but you will be happy you did. You will make a lot of friends and get all the support you need to succeed! If you need help setting up your Sparkpage let us know. We are all here to help each other.

Welcome from Kalamazoo. Don't feel bad - I don't use facebook or twitter so I guess I'm with you in that minority category. I'm okay though - not enough hours in a day.
This website will be of great help to you. Just take your time and learn your way around. Don't be afraid to ask questions and be sure to get your sparkpage set up and open to others so we can drop you notes of encouragement and goodies as well.
This is my first time ever posting anything on the internet...kind of intimidating. My friends and family tease me because I'm the only one they know of that isn't on facebook or twitter. But I thought I'd give it a shot since I really want to get to know other people that want to make a positive change in their lives.
I started 7 weeks ago through an emotional eating program of joyful movement and making the connection between food and emotions therapy. It has been terrific! A woman in one of the other classes suggested I take a look at this site. She has lost 35lbs. in 2 months. So here I am.
I just checked out the website and am really looking forward to being a part of the group.
