SP has all the tools and features to help you become healthier and more fit and with the support of its members - well, it's a recipe for success, but it will require time and patience on your part as the changes you are looking for won't happen overnight, but they will happen!! Take it slow, making gradual changes - ones that are reasonable, doable and sustainable for the long run - these should be positive life changes you are planning to make - this is not a quick fix.

I am just getting started on this site. I heard about it from a message board that I go to. I thought it was about time that I did something to take care of me. I am 33 years old. I am single, no kids. I have two wonderful Jack Russell Terriers. I work in a group home with the mentally handicapped.
I need to lose weight so that I can live a better life and done all the things that I dream of doing.
