Hi Ewefluffy! Glad you found us, and glad that you are finding SP helpful. I love it. The people have made all the difference in the world to me here. Without their support I would have quit two or three times by now! But slow and steady is the right way for me - 15 pounds in 4 months may not sound like a lot, but it's better than nothing!
Slow and steady works. I started SP in June and with a new habit of walking with a DVD and some changes in my food, I have lost 60 pounds. SLOW but steady. I use 3 lb dumbbells to help me keep my arms less jiggly. :) I walk the equivalent of 6 miles a day. 15 minutes a mile.
Good luck! Find something that works for you and stick to it. Don't be discouraged by small losses or plateaus, it's just part of the process. chas
Glad you came here. I am sure you will find lots of help and support. Perhaps if you mention what city you are near, you could find a local Spark Buddy. Welcome, explore the site, and read some of the many posts.

I am Marcia, I am 26 years of age. My goal is to lose 150 pounds in the next 3 years. I am looking forward to meeting new people and reaching my goals. I have a three year old daughter and she is one of my biggest reasons for doing this. I want to be able to watch her grow up and someday be a grandma.
