moral support is exactly what i need. after 2 incredibly dreadful years i finally decided that i deserve to have a good life. i haven't weighed myself and though i am considerably overweight i think right now i will concentrate on having a healthier lifestyle. specifically more exercise, better food choices and a more positive outlook. i know i can do these things with the encouragement of those in similar circumstances, especially with spark people

Welcome from Boston, MA on this warm and beautiful day. I too lost a beloved pet dog and then lost my job, it was eliminated after 22 years. I too am looking for a new job in my area. I have been looking since February and was forced to retire from the company I worked for. I work out at a local fitness center for the summer but after that I will not be able to afford it unless I get a job. It is hard being over 55 years old and all the young graduates are getting the jobs. Best wishes on your journey and on the site. Linda emoticon emoticon emoticon

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

I've gone to WW meetings in the past, and paid for WW online, and I find that I get everything (and more) right here--for free! Once you get a chance, set up a Spark page so we can all chat. emoticon

To eat is a necessity.
To eat intelligently is an art.

PEACE- it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still BE CALM IN YOUR HEART.

Hi! You can do it! We're here to help.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

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.

i'm 61 years old and recently lost my job after 20+ years. they say the 3 most stressful things are losing your home, a loved one and/or your job. batting 1.000, i did all 3 in less than 2 years. i had lost 88 lbs on weight watchers but gained some back through stress and not really caring. i've finally come out of the tailspin and am determined to make my forced retirement as good and fun as i can make it. leg problems prevent me from doing much walking but i do have a pool where i live and i spend at least 2 hours a day there, one hour doing a vigorous doctor approved exercise routine. can't really afford to go to weight watchers every week, depending on spark people to help keep my motivation up.
