    Thanks for adding me Tina ! I've added you too. I know that you're going to make it because of your strong will and need and want to be at the goal weight you've got in mind and to get healthy along the way.

    Just remember we're all rooting for you and we're here for you too through the entire journey. I have 94 lbs to get to my first long term goal now and I wouldn't be able to continue on when I feel down if it weren't for Sparkfriends and Sparkpeople site to help keep me uplifted and to stand by me when I fall down.

    It's okay to fall down as long as we get right back up and start again, there is no such thing as failure unless a person doesn't try at all. You take care and I hope to keep in touch with you often.

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople. I saw your husband's post the other day and glad you have introduced yourself here as well. Please consider posting [or at least re-posting] your blog on SparkPeople because there are a lot of us who would love to follow you and it's just a lot easier if your blog is here - I think you'll find we are a great community with wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there, including people who have a lot of weight to lose.

    You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

    You know what? Reading your post on the message board made me really, really happy. I'm glad you're making changes for yourself and your son! Every day, with every good choice, you're moving closer and closer to the goals you've picked!
