Welcome!!!!!!!! I would recommend copying and posting this post to the "Introduce yourself here" thread - that way more members see what you wrote and can get to know you. No problem posting it here, except that it is a little buried! :-)
Glad you are looking for friends and encouragement! One of the best ways that we can stay encouraged is to encourage others. So I recommend browsing some member blogs until you find some people who motivate your or that you think you can motivate and then add them as a friend! Once you add them, you will get updates when they post things and you can follow their progress. It really is fantastic!
Good luck!!!!!! Let me know if you need any more tips :-)

Hi Kaitlyn, I think this is the perfect place to get encouragement and make "friends" with people who are going through some of the same issues you are going through. I am 60, and have had trouble with my weight since I was 18 and gave birth to my daughter. If there is someplace special we should be posting to each other, I am sure someone on the Sparkpeople staff will let us know. They have all seemed so friendly so far! Good luck with your goals!!
