LESLIE871948, that's exactly why we are ALL here - to support one another and to be the support that each of us needs. That's what makes this group so special - and it wouldn't be the same without special YOU!

As someone who has struggled a lifetime with weight.... Support seems to be maybe the most important part of staying the rocky course of maintenance. I think this is why Weight Watchers continues to survive despite being expensive to stay on for many, they encourage people with the lifetime membership thing, and their leaders have to stay at goal to work... I am of mixed feelings because many who lose a lot of weight like I did have a hard time staying low enough on their ranges to be able to attend meetings free. Especially people who have not had skin removed. THIS is why Spark is so wonderful. Free for all, and once a person finds their healthy weight they are recognized here for maintaining it, without that artificial stamp of approval from some chart. People who are muscular cannot be weight watchers lifetime members....

Enthusiastically agree! I'm SO very grateful for this team! I can't help but wonder what my life would have been like had I found this kind of support when I was in my 20s or 30s or 40s, but I'm grateful to have found it in my 50s--better late than never!
Thanks to everyone who read and commented on my blog, and gave such generous support. I really needed the lift, and I would like to suggest that each and every one of us take the time to nominate everyone on this team as a motivational member! I was surprised to see how many of you supported me but were not yet recognized for all you do. I am working my way through the list nominating all :).
