    Hi from a fellow Sparkler. I wish you all the best for your Spark People journey and hope you don't mind me adding you as a friend. I joined Spark People about 2 years ago and lost some weight then life just got the better of me and I dropped out thinking I could do it all by myself.

    What I did was to put on all the weight I'd lost plus some more and in doing so I somehow lost myself along the way. Gone was all the self confidence, gone was the happy outgoing person I'd returned to being when I'd first lost the weight. It took a while before I admitted to myself that I needed Spark People once again if I was to get back all I was losing as my weight increased.

    My first time on Spark People I had a private Spark Page, didn't even consider having Spark Friends and it was a lonely journey. This time my Page was public, I was looking for Spark friends and the difference was amazing. Sure I have some bad days when I weaken and eat the things I know I shouldn't but I don't enjoy them as I did and in between times I know I can count on the love and support of my Spark Friends to get me through. Its those friends who help me see that one bad day doesn't mean I'm a failure, that its a lesson I've learned and hopefully won't repeat.

    Without my Spark Friends I wouldn't have recovered my self confidence and joy in life, and I know beyond doubt I would NEVER have believed in myself enough to be brave enough to follow my dream of returning to college for the first time in almost 40 years.

    Spark People isn't just about weight loss, its also about finding the hidden qualities deep inside yourself and then using those gifts to improve your life and the lives of other people, specially your family. My weight loss has become secondary to continuing to achieve those dreams of mine. I know I will succeed because I have the support of my wonderful Spark friends.

    Well, that's the rundown on me, just so you know who that friend request is coming from.

    Hi there,

    Just dropping by to say hello, and wish you well on your SP journey.

    This website has made all the difference for me. I've never been able to lose weight AND feel good about myself at the same time. I mean, I love myself NOW! I'm not waitin' til I'm thin.

    I hope you find the great friends and support that I have found. It makes all the difference!

    Hi - dropping by to give a holler! I've been on Spark nearly 4 yrs now. Best site ever - so much of it is carried by your "friends".
    They really help! I've tried other things and I keep coming back here for the support.
