Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining! I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going! Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. We are here to keep everyone motivated. I’ve found that the best source of motivation on spark is posting, asking questions, and finding new friends that are in this together. We are all on this journey of a healthy live style, so your not alone in this. People need someone to believe in them. They need to know that if they take that first step out of their comfort zone, someone will be supporting them all the way. With small words of encouragement, with just a little extra time, that someone could be you. In some cases, others may just be unaware of their true abilities and potential. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Good luck! Sheila

Thanks for taking the time to read my message. I am 26 year old female, weighing at 350lbs at 5'11. I am more concerned now then I have ever been because I am not happy with my appearance, I want to be able to run with my 3 year old son. I use food to fight my emotions, or when i am stressed out. I just know that I can't handle this weight anymore and how it affects my self-esteem and how I feel about myself. I choose to eat between 1400-1600 calories a day and up to 14 carb choices. Plan on drinking alot more water because I know thats a key to loosing weight. I know I need a great support, my mother, some of my friends and the church i go to will support me. I really need to do this for myself time to take charge.
