Welcome, Jacque! We're not a large group, but several of us are regulars. Normal life certainly gets in the way of posting, sometimes, though. As JJ said, check out the monthly chat thread. That's where we normally hang out.

Remember that this weight-loss journey and healthier life style come one day at a time. Don't beat yourself up if you make a mistake; just try to make a better choice the next meal or next day.

Glad to have you in the group!

Thanks for the reply. We certainly have 'sailed through September'. Though not working and being lost in my own head most of the time....I think I missed the whole summer. Since you asked......I'm in Davenport.

Hello, Yes this team is still active. We have a few members that are not active but I am trying to get them back. I am the new team leader but this team was pretty much dropped in my lap with not knowing what to do. We have a topic every month in the check in section. You are more than welcome to join us. The topic for this month is "Sailing through September". When I joined this team as a member it was dead. I have tried to get it going again with the help of my co-leader. I was very touched by your post and would love to talk to you in more detail. What part of the Quad Cities do you live? I know how it is about not being motivated. And I totally understand the depressed part. If you would like to talk to someone I would be happy to talk to you. Please do not hesitate to private message me, so that we could get to know one another and exchange numbers. I will let the others know that we have a new member and you will see they are really nice people. Hope to hear from you soon.

New to Sparkpeople. Looking for support. I'm having a really hard time finding the motivation to take those 1st steps. One would think that the desire to feel better would be motivation enough, but apparently it's not. I am beyond depressed with my life right now. I was laid off in January and the weight has slowly been packing on. My social anxiety is worsening and I'm afraid of becoming agoraphobic again. I have no friends. The only family I have are my kids ....who both live in out of state.. I make a point of not burdening them with my problems. It would be nice to find someone who can maybe relate to my problems or at least understand...? Also a friend to take the journey to a healthier lifestyle with would be a great help.
