I'm Linda and hope you know that I'm here if you need some encouragement or just want to chat.


Always, Linda

If It's To Be, It's Up To Me.

Philippians 4:12-13
(CEV) I know what it is to be poor or to have plenty, and I have lived under all kinds of conditions. I know what it means to be full or to be hungry, to have too much or too little. Christ gives me the strength to face anything.

1Co 10:31 When you eat or drink or do anything else, always do it to honor God.

Hey, Anita, Thanks for the welcome. I am setting things up and the site is a bit overwhelming so yes, I will do what you suggested and open up my sparkpage if I can ever find it again. This site is not an easy one ot maneuver if you are new. But I learn fast on computers so I'm sure in a couple of days I'll be knowing my way around this neighborhood better! I am so happy to know that everyone is so helpful here. It's free to boot! I am so happy I stumbled upon it. Hope to meet and talk with many new people. I'm off to the health club to workout and thanks again. Drop me a line when you have time. Where are you from, by the way?

Hey Jilianne...Welcome to the Team! If you are looking for support, there are a lot of wonderful people here that will give it to you. I tried to read your Spark Page, but you have it set on Private. The Spark Page is a nice way to let other people get to know you better and it also allows them a way to leave messages with you. You may want to consider changing your settings on it. emoticon
I think you will find it to be one of the most encouraging things when you read other peoples Spark pages and you come to realize just how much we all have in common. Sometimes you find that other people are fighting bigger battles than you, yet they are plowing ahead and it just gives you that much more strength. If you have any questions about negotiating your way around, don't hesitate to ask. Someone will always have an answer.
Spark is a wonderful place to be with so many wonderful people. I have found them to be almost like a second family.
Well...Best Wishes with all your goals and again...A Big Welcome! emoticon

Hi, I am new also to SparkPeople. I wish you all the best and hope you do well on your goals. I am finding it a bit hard to figure out how to get into my SparkPage etc. But I'll keep learning so it becomes easy. I love what I am seeing on this site and would love to be a part of this team. Haven't heard anything back yet from anyone so I'll just say that I am 58 and trying to lose 40 pounds. I am trying not to go back to work until I lose the weight because once I start working I lose energy.I am exercising three times a week this week and then 4 times the next, etc. I am studying to be able to do graphic design. I am in a class learning Photoshop. I am really loving that. I also hope to be living on my own by next year as presently I am married. I really think that I can do it with support from people like you all on this site.

Yes...You are in the right spot. This is the place to be....Morning, Noon, or Night! You know the only way to learn is to just jump on the band wagon and give it a go. Before you know it, you'll know your way around really well.
Questions...There are a lot of great people here ready to help.
So WELCOME! emoticon

Welcome! You'll find the most delightful ladies on this SparkTeam Page. They've helped me through many stages of learning my way around. I've never asked for help that they haven't jumped at the change to help me (thank you ladies).

We'll be here for you too. Relax, take it one step at a time. Ask questions. That's how I learned (smile).

Welcome Vickie. I think you will find that this team is so friendly and supportive. Just browse around the site and you will learn as you go. Set up you Spark Page (It's easy) so people can get to know you. I love the Meal Planner on "My Nutrition" because it really helps me to stay on track. If you get lost or have questions, don't be afraid to ask. This team will come to your aid in a second. I have been on SP for 3 weeks and i love it.

Hope I am in the correct spot to introduce myself. Even though I show that I have been around the SparkPeople website for awhile, I actually have only perused the site a few times and really do not know how to use it.

I would like to lose probably around 75 pounds. I am 52, work full time, have been married for 31 years. We have three grandchildren....oldest is 5, youngest is just about 2 months old. I like watching my nephew play baseball...watching my son coach baseball, reading and quilting.

I am looking forward to becoming more acquainted with the board and using it a little more. I have blogged a few times.......always with intent to keep it up, but it just doesnt happen!

Hugs to all.......vickie

If you always do what you alway did, you'll always get what you always got!
