emoticon 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!

well today i start working to a better me not that I'm not happy with who i am i just want to make sure that I'm here past 60, I'm 49 i weight 345 I'm want to lose about 120lbs tracker says by May 2014 ill be there.
i have blown it today, i ate what i usually eat so i can see the problem. I'm hoping i can do this, my family while supportive has no plans to change their habits. this is going to be hard to start, to many temptations, and ill not lie self restraint is not easy for me. Luckily my wife will make sure i stay true.
so here i am. sitting at the computer when i should be walking off what i put on to day. so i guess its time to go for a nice walk. i live in Or and have some nice hills in the area so ill take my camra walk up some hills and hopefully get some nice shots.
