The great thing about this spark people site and team is that no matter how you are feeling there is someone who can relate to you. I belong to two weight loss groups and neither are motivating me to lose. However this site really helps me out, I can motivate someone else with a few kind words and there is someone out there who understands how I feel at that moment. It's great to see you here, welcome to the slowest loser and know that you can do this

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. " Thomas Jefferson

to The Slowest Loser. I love this team. I didn't gain all of the weight and get all of the bad habits overnight and it's good to have a place to concentrate on making the small lifestyle changes that will stick with me for a while. The weight loss is a bonus and I'm happy with every pound I lose. Good luck on your journey - you picked the right team.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life!

I am new to sparkpeople and am very excited about being a part of the slowest loser! It is nice to think I can take my time and work everyday towards changing my life. I always felt like it was a race to lose weight, but I am glad to find others who will be proud to take it slow.
