Hi! I try not to give in to my moods. Today another pebble off my weight. Another big pound & 2 ounces. At that rhythm, I have better be prepared for the long haul. ALL messages keep me focused and I know that since most of the Sparkers achieve success, I can do it TOO. The most difficult isn't the food , but the exercise! Next week I'll go for an X-ray of my knee to see what's wrong, in the meantime, I'll move as much as I can. Reading the posts make me stick to my decision that I have to persist and when my willpower weakens I read another post.
MALICORNE1, you should make a sparkpage so people can see how your doing and you can post blogs and pictures of you on your journey. Now that I know a little more about you these teams may help you too. Let me know if you have any questions

Hi! to all of You Fellow Sparkers! I am a 60 something. Been slim most of my life. Started to expand after an accident which left me with a lame ankle and led to arthrose in most of my joints. I used to be very active and did sport in a regular if not intensive way. Walking has become an ordeal but I force myself and have even borrowed an older dog, who has become my walking companion .He is also benefiting of my company, since HE also suffer of arthrose.. We suffer together and encourage each other. I have to loose 45 pounds, since to top it all I am pre-diabetic. I take this program very seriously, and get all the motivation possible to stay on track. Thanks Jambabyo for your answer. every little encouragement will count !
Hi and welcome! So glad you are here to make a change! Congrats on your loss!! Get familiar with everything here and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability! Try putting the first number of your age in the team search bar followed by a 0 and the word something - for example - "30 something" it is a good place to start looking for a good team. You could also use your hobbies or interests. Good luck on your journey!
