  • Wow! This is a great site. It's easy & convenient to use. This will work great for me because I have health issues that need attention by losing weight & getting active everyday. I struggle with depression & type diabetes. I'm looking forward to starting this!
    Trying to learn everything about this challenge.
  • This was very helpful. I will try to get it done. Busy days helping wife take care of mom-in-law and workign every day. Schedules!
  • Thanks for this information! 🌻
    Working on my health and La Jolla – my goal is to be healthier, lighter and stronger and more energetic.
  • I am soon to be 50. I live in Pryor, OK, have 2 grand kids & have been medically retired. Trying to stay active & lose some weight.
    Any suggestions or ideas would be great!
  • I've been on Spark since June. Decided to take this challenge in hopes of learning how to use every resource this site has to offer.
  • I have been around since 2008 and I am back trying to get motivated again.
    I am a new member. I am 75 years old. I have 40-50 lbs to lose. I suffer with back pain and a knee pain. I have lost and gained weight many times over the years. WW always helped but always gained back. Why pay their fees when I can do the same thing here. I need accountability. So please help me with your encouragement blogs. Thank you. Nancy
  • Thanks for the good information. Will be checking out the Message Boards.
  • Hi everyone- this looks like a great resource!
    Every day presents its challenges, but if you screw up one day, just try again the next. I was doing SO well all day yesterday, but got invited to a happy hour, which led to drinks and fried appetizer...but you know what? It was still better that all day I'd had high protein, low or no carb, low calorie choices. I still blew my calorie count, but have to think what it WOULD have been had I not been "good" the rest of the day! And, making me more determined to be good today.
  • Glad to be back. Different user name, same person. Have a great day everyone.

    Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew"
    St Francis de Sales

    I am thankful today that I put myself to task, did my morning walk and stretch.
  • Day 5 and I'm already behind with days 3 & 4 due to being busy over the weekend, and losing the internet just when I was ready to use it! Going ok so far, slow and steady, but feeling a bit down for no apparent reason. Hopefully the sun will come out and my clothes will start to feel looser and I'll start to fell more "UP".
