Hi, it is 5.25pm now. A good time to start sweating but I am in front of my PC to say hallo you at Sparkpeople. <BR> <BR> Everybody want a good health. So am I. But it is not easy to get up and start sweating alone. I found Sparkpeople just by chance on the internet. Look nice. Maybe can help me a bit. I've been reading many of the articles / stories. Interesting, and I hope I can sample some of them. <BR> <BR> So, here I am. Wish me luck! Sun, 18 Jan 2015 04:28:43 EST Appreciate all Help and Advice I am 51 and just came off of a very stressful year so I need to get back on track. I have a new husband, new job and new address so I am making quite a few adjustments. I always appreciate advice and encouragement. I struggle a little with keeping motivated but hoping this site will keep me focused! (I have gained 15 pounds that I desperately want to shed by my April birthday!) I appreciate all the resources on this website so I think I can do this! Tue, 13 Jan 2015 16:31:18 EST 1 Month Check In - How's it going? I have been trying to maintain and even lose a couple pounds.

HI, I'm Stacy and I signed up with Spark People a few days ago. I need to lose around 60 - 65 pounds.

I call it Stacy 2.0. I hope to make some friends along the way, as I think having someone join you in your efforts leads to better results.... Sun, 21 Dec 2014 07:53:29 EST Introducing..Natasha!
