Thanks so much for the encouragement and advice! I look forward to getting to know you and drawing on your experience. I have joined other weight loss websites, but never found anything like SP. I've been hiding for so long, feeling angry with myself for becoming so out of control. I am much more at peace with myself now and want to come out of hiding, face my 118kg weight and tackle it head on.
Hi there Welcome! Once you find some Teams that suit you, some Challenges that are going to push you (I belong to teams and challenges that have nothing to do with weight and fitness - but I am working on my entire lifestyle - including being more organised in life in general, etc) then you will find a way to be accountable and that works wonders!
Being accountable on Spark eventually leads us to be accountable to ourselves and to treat ourselves with love and respect - something I have learned along the way - and I also have a huge amount of fun in the process

Hi! I'm from Natal and have just joined. I feel really motivated, as it appears that every area to do with getting rid of the extra weight has been covered. I have a looooong way to go - at least 100 pounds/45kgs to send packing! I'm ready to do it now and am relying on all of you to keep me on track! I'm REALLY good at self-sabotage and withdrawing, so........!!! Looking forward to being on this journey with you all.
