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.

Hi and welcome to the team.

Dorothy

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.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

emoticon to the Team. Spark People is a really good place to be and learn from articles to post of team members and yourself. Keep logging in, tracking nutrition and fitness, setting goals and reading.

Look at this as a life style change, and what you will learn will help you live a healthier life and enjoy activities.

Good Luck. God Bless.

I've never "talked" to strangers before via internet. Very green at this!
However, I needed a cheering section to keep going with my goals, and a support team for when I fail.
Need to lose 50lbs. My goal was to turn 50 and be 50 lbs thinner. Well, I'm 50, that's about it!!
Anyone out there who wants to help?
