I am also a relative newbie (joined July 11). I am from Dartmouth, and really enjoy this site. I've told my doctor about it and he says he will recommend it to patients, also gave info to his secretary and she was really interested, too.

Hi Everyone, My name is Donna, I'm 38 and from Campbellton, New Brunswick. Thought I might join this team to hopefully make some friends, gets some advice and chit chat about things we have in common. I have more to lose than 20 lbs but will start there and along the way hope to learn a more healthier lifestyle. I love to eat and hate to exercise...not off to a great start am I? hehe..I'll take it one day at a time...
Hi my name is Pat and I just joined this week. I have been searching the internet for months looking for some kind of diet plan and SparksPeople fit the bill exactly. I am from Bathurst, New Brunswick and have just recently moved there and don't know a living soul here except my hubby, of course, lol. I usually eat when I am lonely and I sure am that, but now that I have skyrocketed out of control, I need to lose some serious pounds. So far, I have lost 2lbs., Whoopee.
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Consistency is the key.
current weight: 197.0

Hi and Welcome KATT_MAP! This is a great site with everything that you need to lose the weight. YOu only need to bring yourself and your own motivation to do the work. I've been here for almost a year and really I should be getting close to my goal but because I wasn't honest with myself and didn't do the work I haven't lost all that I want to lose. This year I have set new goals and I'm determined to meet them. I too have tried many different programs and I still go to a group meeting to weigh in but I come here for information, motivation and support. I'm glad you're here, please keep coming back!

Just thought I'd say hi to everyone, I'm new to the group, I live in Meadowvale, near Greenwood N.S. I started this program this month so I am also new to the site. I think this is a great program, I have tried many others and nothing seemed to last so I'm hoping for the best.
