Hi, welcome to the team. You will receive the support and motivation from the team that you need. I find my motivation by posting everyday on the message boards whether on this team or another. Whether I am responding to someone having a bad day or cheering someone on for reaching a goal I am receiving as much as giving. I love to welcome new members as their enthusiasm is contagious. When you are on a team, you are never alone. That is why statistic show that people who are active in the community tend to lose more weight and keep it off than people who go it alone. So again, welcome and I hope to see a lot of you. Glad that you are on this journey with us.
The one thing I would suggest to you is create a spark page. It is the page where you tell other members what you want them to know about you. You can make it private where only your spark friends can see it or public. Please feel free to browse my spark page and you will see what it is about. Mine is not fancy like some because I am not computer savvy but it has everything a spark page has. You can leave the member comments, spark goodies and see what teams they are on. It is always where you add them as a spark friend. You even get spark points for creating one. Now that is cool. Mine is public, I just don't put real personal info on it, like address and such. You can add me as a friend if you wish and I will add you as a friend when you make your page.
By getting a healthy lifestyle you are impacting the lives of your husband and children, too. What a wonderful gift to give to them.
I love SparkPeople
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
I am responsible for my own happiness.
My name is Bonnie I live in CT, EST.
I lost 122 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.
Like most people, I want to be healthy. I feel like I lost my way in regards to overall health and fitness. I am a 37 y/o mom of 2 and married. I recently saw myself in a window and cried because I have gained so much weight. I am not here to look at a number, but just how I feel about myself. I want to teturn to being an active mom so that i can be 100% present in my children's lives. I wasn't ready before, but I am now.
