* * FOR NEW MEMBERS PLEASE, do not post on this thread, thank you!
Welcome to the team!
We are a very caring, supportive team and we'll do all we can to encoursge you! Please join in on any/all threads that you wish . . . they are there for you. I would strongly urge you to come on the chat thread and tell us about you, get to know us. This thread is where you'll get lots of support from team members.
We have an ongoing streaking challenge which is to choose something that you need to do and may have difficulty doing (like drinking 8 cups water/eating properly, etc) and then come in that thread daily to let us know what day you're on the streak and how you're doing with it. Keeping at it forms a wonderful habit and will make it a bit easier for you to lose the weight. Takes time and patience but you can do it!
There is a thread for those of you who wish to make your page an "open" page, that is . . . to make your page so that we can get on it and leave you comments and goodies, etc. I notice many have their pages set to "private" so if you "open" them we'll come on there and greet you. Click on the link at the end of this post and follow instructions to make your spark page open.
Also, if you do not know how to put a photo/character on your profile, please ask and we'll tell you how to do that. It makes it much easier for you to be recognized by other members.
There are games and fun threads also, plus if you have a subject you'd like to talk about or info you'd like to pass on, please feel free to put a thread on about it. We enjoy the variety and hearing from members.
So come on in, join the fun, join this wonderful group, work at eating healthy and get in some regular exercising. The weight did not come on overnight so it will not come off overnight but it WILL come off!
Patience, baby steps and one day at a time. See you on the threads!
