Greetings!! I noticed that some of our goals are similar! I'm from Texas and I would also like to loose a few extra unwanted pounds! I am new and just getting started too! How do you like it so far?? Nikki from Texas
Welcome Marniek. I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. Losing a loved one is never easy. One thing I have found though is that the group of people here on the message boards are not only willing to help you reach your goals, they also provide a great support base. I lost my grandmother a few months ago and it was very comforting to read posts about how people were offering condolances and/or prayers for my family. There are some awesome people here and I hope you take the opportunity to get to know them and let everyone here get to know you. I want to wish you luck with your program, and if there is anything any of us can asist you with, please don't hesitate to ask.

Welcome to SparkPeople, we're happy to have you here!
It sounds like you've had some major life events recently that would be enough to make it hard for anyone to stay on track in all areas of your life.
We have a group of really positive people here on the boards who love helping other people reach goals!
Today is my startup day and I am looking forward to getting going on my goals. I went out to dinner last night and had the MOST difficult time finding something that I thought fit me well and didn't look bad. Not terribly successful...so I made up my mind to get back into shape.
I lost 15 pounds before I became pregnant with my daughter in Spring of 2001 and got below that weight after she was born, but have really slipped in the last year. Stress, motherhood and the loss of my Mom to cancer have taken it's toll. So now, I am taking my life back.
