emoticon Tweeter ... emoticon to Spark People and the Spark North Dakota team. It's nice to have you with us.

We all find our motivation and inspiration in different places. My motivation came from seeing a picture of myself along with several other of the Mom's in my son's Boy Scout Troop. I was the biggest by far! My son was very close to making Eagle at the time, and I knew his Eagle Court of Honor would be held within the next year. If you've never been to an Eagle Court of Honor let me tell you, there are a lot of pictures taken during the ceremony and throughout the day. I did NOT want to be fat in those pictures!

My inspiration came from friends and family, both on Spark People and at home, who praised me for every pound and inch I lost and who supported my efforts by walking with me when I wanted to walk and dragging me out of the house on the days I didn't. When I felt down and thought I wasn't making progress fast enough I'd read some of the inspirational stories of people here at Spark People who overcame all kinds of challenges to reach their goals.

emoticon in reaching your goals. If you need any help finding your way around the site or getting started please let us know. We're only too happy to help.

May you always have
Love to Share, Health to Spare, and Friends that Care!

Hello from Minot

You have come to a good place to get support and motivation, once you find your way around the site you will find so many things that will help you out. I have found many recipes that I have made and they have been loved even though they are made healthier then the norm.

We are all in the same boat or we wouldnt be here, and everyone is willing to help whenever it is needed of them. Don't be afraid to ask.

See you on the lighter side

Dana

Hello - Well here goes...I've been thinking for months that I need to DO something, anything to get my weight back to a healthy level. I ran across the sparkpeople site via a post on Facebook, and here I am. I have to admit my motivation is very low at the moment...and I'm hoping that I can get moving with the help of others in the same boat!
