Hi Kim, to the team! Remember you didn't gain this in one day so just take it one day and one pound at a time. I wish you success.

I am new to this team as well, and a new-ish Sparker, and so far it has been a great experience. Check in with your teams and buddies every day. Have you read the Fast Break plan under "SparkDiet" - it's a great way to get a couple weeks of small successes under your belt for encouragement and motivation.
As our other Team Indygirl friends have said in other replies to your joining message, it's about a lifestyle change for long term health. Start small, build one success at a time, and when you fall off the horse, pick yourself up, brush off the dust, and get back on again. Notice I said "when" not "if" because no one is perfect, but persistence will win the day.
Looking forward to encouraging each other on our journeys to better health!

Nice to have you on the team. This is a very supportative team so don't hesitate to reach out. The best things I've learned this year on SP would be to make small changes that you can live with the rest of your life. This is about a lifetime journey not a "diet" where you lose weight by a certain date and then go back to all the old habits that got you where you are today. Also, that consistency is key. I can't expect to eat healthy for 3 days and suddenly expect weight to come off, especially if the other 4 days of the week were filled with junk food. It's about making one good choice after another and most of all, when I don't have a good day, I've learned not to beat myself up about it.
You can do this, we all can!
Progress, not an Perfection....
Just remember it took a long time to gain the weight.
It will take time to attain the ideal weight.
SP offers tons of support and education.
We warmly welcome you!
Kimberly, Welcome to this group. I wish you success in all things and a Merry Christmas also. I new year and new you is beginning and I wish you all the best.
I was absolutely inspired by your story and your group! I really did I say REALLY need support and it looks like you guys talk a lot which is exactly what I need. I have over 150 pounds to lose and I am recently divorced so that doesnt help cause I feel sad and discouraged all the time. Please help me in this. I need all of the diet and exercise and food and everythng I advise you have to offer!
