I would love to be a SP Friend and encourage you! I've been here 5 months and have lost 20 lbs. A lot of it has been due to accountability and SP has really helped me there. I agree with the other comments here about choosing one or two small goals to start, and making a SP page. I look forward to seeing you back on this page and learning more about you and your progress.

I agree. Trying to do too much all at once can be overwhelming, AND you're then left feeling like a failure when you're not successful with all of those changes. Which leads you back to where you started.

I'd also suggest making a sparkpage if you haven't yet. I get so excited when someone posts a comment on my page or on my blog. It's just a little boost to keep me going, knowing I'm not alone in this journey.

Good for you for reaching out. Continue to do so! We're all here for each other! C'mon, you can do this!! Set a goal that you'd like to reach by next week - post it - and tell us about your progress each day!



I'm closer to my goal today than I was yesterday!

Pick one thing to start with, make it a habit and build on it. You don't have to change everything all at once. Good luck!

Hello all! I am 33 years old, about to turn 34 in July! I am READY to lose weight! I know it is going to be hard, but I have to get it done! I will need a lot of support and encouragement especially from those of you whom this program has worked for. I have started many times, but never follow through. I am going to try my hardest to lose weight taking small steps at a time. I cant wait for this new journey! I hope that you guys are willing to help me out! :)
