Welcome aboard, Angelika. I think I can safely promise not to pray over you, which was one of my concerns after a few months of SP. :)

We're a fun bunch, made up of people with differing and/or private beliefs and a few atheists (me, me!). Mostly in the SP boat of weight loss or maintenance. I looooong for maintenance - all I can say is I lost, I ate, I gained it back. :) One day, though, I'll be right down there with you.

In the meantime, hang out with us, chat, get to know us better and help us know YOU better!

Happy New Year!

Cheers,
Maya

Hi, my name is Angelika.

I am here as a maintainer, more or less.

I started my journey on 1/18/09, started here on Sparks on 2/5/10, and since then I have lost 56 pounds. I now have about 5-8 pounds to lose, mostly because I went a bit hog-wild last month and gained about 5 pounds.

I am finding maintaining is just as much work, if not more, than losing in the first place.

BUT this weight is NOT coming back, that is for sure. I have fibromyalgia, and carrying around that extra weight was not only hell on my joints but it was worsening my other symptoms.

I am totally over religion, if you know what I mean, and I am glad to find a safe place where that won't be a topic.

One of goals for 2011 is to join meaningful teams. To that end, here I am. I look forward to meeting you!

Blessings and Be Well, Peace, Love and Light to all beings!
