Hi everybody!! I just want to introduce myself. I have been a member of sparkpeople since 2007 and this site has been of so much help during my journey. I accomplished most of my goals while I was living in VA. I moved back to San Antonio in Feb. and then I had a baby. I have since lost the baby weight, but I am looking for some motivation to help me stay active and hopefully start running soon. I am making it a point to come here for some daily inspiration and motivation.

Sometimes it takes 3 years to be ready, Laura! I've been here three years and while my progress in the weight loss department is still dismal, my progress in my health and well being, as well as the quality of my overall life is vastly improved. I'm hoping this is my year for seeing visually the results I feel. I'm glad you are ready, because we are ready for you! Hugs and welcome to all!
Well hello to both Cory and Laura then! :) Welcome to our team - as MJ said, it's a bit slow here right now, but it will pick back up again. We have a lot going on, from Saturday walking groups to monthly challenges. We just had a few team get-togethers, and more will be coming in 2013. :)

Hi Cory and welcome to the team. It's kind of slow right now with the holidays approaching, but come January 1st this place will be jumping!
Read some blogs, jump in on a few threads, and get a feel for the site. Someone is always around soon to answer any questions you may have. I always suggest that you track all of your food and exercise (at least for a while) until you get the feel for what works for you. Once piece of advice that is pretty universal around here is to make sure you are getting enough water intake, make more healthy choices than you do less healthy choices, and move more! We are all on this journey together and we all want to cheer each other on and take joy in everyone's successes. I'm sure you will fit right in and soon be a real part of our team! Again, welcome!
