Wow!!! Here we are in 2020, where has the time gone. I am struggling to live. Not suicidal, but as I once heard someone say, "Alice Evans, are you living or just existing?"

Well I'm just existing. I don't want to just exist, I want to live, so that is why I have decided to come back to Spark People. I have been on a weight roller coaster, since forever, (like most of us here) so at least I know I am in the company of others who understand the struggles of life.

I'm hoping to be encouraged to back on the wagon of a healthy living lifestyle. I want to be a source of encouragement to others too.

My goal is to get into better shape. Exercise and eat right. Get my life back from depression.

My Program:
I plan to start logging into this site and the Biggest Loser site for awhile.

I plan to may small baby step goals and reward myself accordingly. (need help with suggestions)

Personal Information:
My name is Anna and I am from California. I enjoy cross stitching , doing puzzles, Sudoku puzzles, board games, being with family. I struggle doing a lot of these things because of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis and 2 bulging discs in my neck. Which in turn leads to depression because I want to do these things but have no energy or motivation. I am hoping that reestablishing myself here with Spark People will help in my healthy lifestyle goals.

Other Information:
I love animals. I have a terrier mix (Tinky - 12 yrs), yorkie chihuahua mix (Mamasita - 9 yrs) and a chihuahua (Little Little aka Chunky monkey - 4 yrs). They are my babies and are always by my side. I am truly blessed by their companionship.

    Hello and welcome to,

    I'm pretty new at this myself, but wanted to let you know that it's o.k. to just jump right in and play. It's how I have been learning my way around. So far I have encountered only splendid, encouraging and helpful people. Stop by and say hello, I need friends too!

    Hi Anna,
    Welcome to sparks. You have come to the right place for reaching your health and weight loss goals.

    I see you have already joined some teams, this is great because you will find the teams are built on hobbies/interest, weight goals, or a more personal variety (like thyroid issues). The teams are a great source of encouragement and information.

    Weight loss and developing a healthy lifestyle takes time and patience, but with these you will be successful. I wish you the best meeting your goals.
