I joined several weeks ago right before having knee replacement surgery. All healed up now and getting and giving a lot of support on SP. My teams are my local, Nashville, TN Team, Fun Loving Over 60, and Christian Women.
Perhaps it the name of the site, I don't know, but I find messaging is vastly upbeat over another site I joined last year. On that site, there was a lot of whining.
I'm kind of where you are, behind the curve with retiring, addressing health issues, keeping our house ready for showing. However, with knee A OK I'm ready to get going.

Hi Everyone! My name is Patricia and I have lost my spark.... I had joined SP before looking for support to help me lose weight, but as you may know, life happened. Elderly parents/in-laws became ill and passed on, DH and I moved, retired, had surgery, and much more.
So, this time I set up my Spark Page, but received no comments and I wondered why..... I guess I thought that was all I had to do, but that did not get me very far. So here I am again this morning sending out an introduction to see if there is anyone out there in Spark Land who can encourage/support/motivate me on my weight loss journey. I have already joined a few teams that I thought seemed very interesting. Some of them twice, sorry about that, technical problem on my side. I have been reading the message boards and find you all so supportive of one another and would love to be part of your Spark "family'. I will update my Spark Page and if I can figure out how, I may even add pictures.
Thank You & have a great day! Patricia
