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.

Welcome from Texas! You made a good choice when you joined this team of committed and caring people. We're all in this together, using tools of SP, while supporting and encouraging one another.

Check out the Nutrition Tracker to see the most used and effective tool on the site. You'll be totally surprised at the information you gain from it.

Start slowly on this journey to a healthier lifestyle to avoid frustration and disappointment. Drinking 8 cups of water a day for several days in a row is a good starting place. Once that becomes your new good habit add another element, like 10 minutes of exercise to reach your ultimate goals.

Looking forward to celebrating your successes with you. Come back soon and post often.

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 my name is Sheila. I'm from Florida but I have relatives in TN. I've been a member of this site since April 2009 but just recently got serious about losing weight. I have several health problems that are weight related and need lots of inspiration and encouragement too. Maybe we can encourage each other. emoticon

hi from a newbie at SP but not weight loss or the struggles it takes everyday. As I have aged the weight has crept up and it is sticking like glue. I am working hard to shake it loose, but it is very difficult.I am looking for some inspiration and support from the community. I hope I will be of some help to someone also. I would like to hear from some of you.
