I am a high school teacher and mommy to three full of life and on the go kids ages 5, 3, 2. Before when I was heavier, I could barely keep up with them, but now I am able to catch them and at times they can't keep up with me. lol Life is so different being healthy and thinner!!! My family are learning about proper nutrition and they too want to be heathy. Being thinner, people look and interact with me differently. Its sad to say, but our society does sterotype by looks and thinks because you are heavy, you are not intelligent. Since I have lost the weight, friends that I have known for years, look at me different now. The only thing that has changed about me is my weight and I am D*** Proud of it!!!!!

    Hello. I was just browsing the site, and came across your page.
    I wanted to take this oportunity to invite you to our team. It is called "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".
    It is a forum that my wife (ticklemepink-aka Carol) formed. At first, it was for people with a disabitliy,but now it's expanded to everyone..disability or no disability. As a matter of fact, more then 1/2of the group do not have one.

    The link is located on my sparkpage, and the main discussion room is still named "disabiltiies group".
    I was noticing some successes here on your page, and that is what the forum is all about. People post their successes in life, their personal stories, motivation to succeed, advice, and there's even a thread for jokes.

    I was hoping that you will click the link, join the group, and come to post in the main room, & maybe share some of your own successes, etc..for us to all get aquainted,better. As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.

    We hope to welcome you! As you will probably feel like you'll want to invite your friends along with you once you see some of the posts! (we'd love to welcome them tooo!)
    I hope you will click the tab that says "sparkmail" if you need any questions answerred, and either sparkmail myself, or Carol. We are willing to help.
