Hi Littlenell
Welcome aboard the team, we are a fairly new team, but I think I am right in saying ---- we have a load of experience between us. I think we have all the ideas , we have to make life style changes and not "diet" because we have all found out, to our horror, that it goes back on and sometimes more.
You need to go back and think what triggered 'comfort eating' - I have been told that it is to fill a void in your life - though I am still looking into mine.
You need to listen to your body and just eat when hungry, once you have done that you can then concentrate on losing weight.

Hi folks. I'm in Glasgow and joined Spark a few months ago (pureblood Glaswegian in the North of the City). Hoping to get some motivation to lose some weight and get fitter! Not working right now and caring for elderly parents but keeping busy with my exercise plan and eating whatever I can (the last bit's the problem!). Comfort eater here and help/advice will be greatly received! All the best everyone.

Hi all,
Gretchen here. I am from Boston US and live in Oregon now. Removed from Scotland by about 200 years worth of generations. Spent the best Hogmanay of my life in Glasgow, 1994, and have been itching to get back ever since.
I'm a golfer and just took up Scottish Highland Games. If I'm in a sport... it might as well be Scottish!
Spark on!!
Gretchen

Hi Heather
I think one of our members saw that your Scots bright sparks may be missing an active team leader, so invited you to this new one. I joined Scottish sparks, but not many of the members were active, so decided to give it one more try and created this new team, I need motivation, like we all do and so I thought by creating a team it would help me, i could help others and have fun and games along the way
Welcome, please feel free to play games and join in where you want
lovely to meet you
Lynn

Hi there I'm all confused now. I was a member of Scotlands Brightest Sparks, but got an Invite to Scottish Sparks so I joined up - then I saw a link to this group which says it's replacing Scottish Sparks.

Anyway here I am - I'm Heather (the clue's in the name) and I live in the Borders. Hello all emoticon

Hi Eileen
Thanks for coming over from Scottish Sparkes. All these new places we will be able to have a great virtual walk, just a few members more.
You have beaten me with grandkids lol. Retiring means slowing down.. I know that is easier said than done lol but with the support from the team we will all be on the right road soon

Hi,
I've been a member of Sparkpeople for about 3 years and find the info and support invaluable.
I'm from West of Scotland and was born in Glasgow.
I'm a keen point collector. Can I add another easy one that I do every day?

Hello to all I am a 70year old grandmother of ten and great grand mother of one and soon to have another great grand son due in August,I was a member of the USA Sparkpeople where I lived for over forty five years.I returned back to Edinburgh five years ago and decided I needed to jump back on the diet bandwagon so back to Sparkpeople .
My daughter who lives in Florida is Honeypot 319 and just joined the team there, she is more of an outgoing person than I am so has made many friends on the site already in two weeks,however I would like some friends to meet with on this new site.

My name is Lynn, I live in Troon, South Ayrshire but I am originally from Sheffield in South Yorkshire.

I have moved from Scottish Sparks to Sparks of Scotland the 82 members that seem to be there were not a true reflection on the team and so I am hoping that those that join will help and support each other through the weight loss journey that we are all taking and hopefully have fun on the way.

I have a 12 week challenge coming up and also when we get a few more members we could have a virtual walk around Scotland, visiting the places that we all have ties to. Hope to see you there xx
