Good Luck. God Bless.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

emoticon Welcome to the beginning of your healthy lifestyle. Diets don't work, but making small changes to the way you live does work.
emoticon Most of us are here for the long haul, so feel free to get to know us. Questions ... wonderful, that's the only way we learn. Aha moments ... share them. We love them and they even open some doors for us to get further in our journey. Rants and pity parties ... well, I guess. I will warn you though … this is a pretty upbeat bunch of people you'll be talking to.
emoticon Check out a few Spark Pages. You'll soon find some like minded people to hook up with as friends. Join a few teams. I find that the challenge team motivates me when I don’t feel like doing what I know I should.
emoticon Don’t let all the information that is here overwhelm you. Just try to make two or three small changes, and when you've got them mastered, and then move on. Before you know it, you'll be amazed at how long you been here and how far you have come!

Statistics say that those who interact with others do better with their weight loss. Don't be afraid to reach out. We all know where you are coming from and how hard this is.

Welcome Kummy,

I have only been with SP a few days shy of 4 months and I have learned so much. I was way excited when the first 9 pounds came off, then I sabotaged myself by thinking I could eat this or drink that and it won't matter. I found out the hard way.

I was only discouraged shortly and did not give up because I had all of Spark People behind me. So I turned it around by changing my negative thinking into positive affirmations to make the necessary changes to develop my healthy and fit lifestyle.

Just wanted to share that with you because we do stumble and trip up, but that's all it is. No one is a failure here and no one will judge the amount of weight you lose or how fast. Everyone will applaud the effort you put into changing your life into one that includes eating proportionate, healthy and whole foods, getting the proper nutrition, drinking lots of water and developing an active lifestyle.

Welcome to a wonderful place to be. We're all in this together, so remember that you are never alone in your weight loss journey. My best to you.

Julia
