Hello John. Welcome to our team!
You have come to the right place to find support on your fitness journey. With Spark, you are NOT DIETING---you are BECOMING MORE FIT. Spark is not a diet. Spark is not about deprivation. It is about making healthy choices in your nutritional intake and in your exercise. The Spark fitness program works the best when you set your fitness goals then make small lifestyle changes at a time until those changes have become a habit.
John, I encourage you to modify your thinking about yourself just a little bit. Rather than calling yourself a "failure to launch," think of yourself as an individual who has "fallen down six times and gotten up seven." The word "failure" is of no use to us really. It only serves as an excuse to do nothing. You are already up on your feet; you have already experienced successful weight loss, you have joined Sparkpeople, and you have made a commitment to becoming a healthier YOU. Kudos to you!!
Stay in touch, okay? I'm glad you've joined us!
