Hi Cindy and welcome to the team! We do like to have fun. Also, if you are willing post your birthday on the Birthday Roll Call thread. You don't have to post the year if you don't want to. But we like to celebrate birthdays!
So glad you've joined us. There really is a lot of support here and on SP in general!

HI Cindy,
Welcome to the team and to Spark People. It really is a great website. There is so much positive reinforcement. If you get a chance check out Dawn's BLOG (Dawnwaterwoman). I just read it and it was quite good.

Hi, my name is Cindy, I am 35 years old, I was looking for a smaller group of fun people and I found you all. I started on Monday, but signed up here on Tuesday, I am in my first week and doing pretty well! I have a history of failed changes of eating habits.. so far I have stuck to it. I am hoping to get support and some laughs!

Hi my name is Rose and my logo I just changed for this group, the "Blue Quack Rose" that is me. I am 59 will be 60 end of Dec. Been on this site 6 months. I have lost 55 pounds now. As of weigh in today was another 1.4 pounds. I am at the half way point. I was over 220 when I started. In June of last year. I am from NY, and I am in SC for the winter with my son watching the grandson Beto who will be 5 in Feb. And there new puppy picture on page under pictures, who know. I was asked to join and I will be happy to share and motivate and whatever else can be done. I am pretty regular, I have not missed a blog or posting in 6 months. I should just go over 20,000 spark points this week. i have read the spark and I got 2000 of those points because of the spark. i have made my own team the day I logged on, I was naive, put have kept it going I did it cause I am a huge facebook person. I am disabled i had polio as a baby of 2 1/2, now I live with Post polio. think that is enough for now. I go home on march 31st. back to NY. I am excited about this new team. Thank you for the invite hope I can contribute. Blue Rose Quack emoticon emoticon emoticon

Afternoon Everyone,

I am so happy we have such a great team started here.

Tears:

If tears fell like diamonds,
I would give each one away.

They would sparkle in your
hand, reminding you to
"Spark" all day.

They would shimmer in the
light, showing beautiful
rainbow colors.

They would make you smile
while thinking of others.

My tears are only water,
falling down, in happiness,
with friends who joined, to
support each other, bringing
cheer and gladness to us, to
take away the gloom.

On we march to victory, in
all we say and do.
God Bless us everyone, for
bringing "Angel's" to this
room.

love and hugs, paula:)

Glad you've joined us Cathy!
About the veering, I know when I've done some fitness classes and we do a few balance exercises the teach would tell us not to look at anyone else cause if they lose their balance we will too and that is so true! I don't know why either.

Cool.....does this mean I have a place to muse about why it is so hard not to follow the driver in front of you when he veers over a line.

Thanks. Polkamamma, for the invite. I look forward to being part of this team.

Hi,
Remember the show "Cheers," where everybody knows your name? Here is the place. Right here, Quackers, Crackers, & Perks. :)

My name is Paula aka/ PaulaStras
one of your co-leaders.

I would like to give credit to my daugher JoAnne.
While talking to her on the phone one day she said,"mom why don't you and Judy start a team."

Thinking about it, I mentioned it to Judy, and off
we took.

My daughter will be one of the co-leader's also.

I have written a short poem on:.....

"CHANGES"

As life evolves, changes are
made.
From the beginning of time,
to now.
Are we willing to change, or
is it a word,
That just sounds nice, or even
absurb.(not accessable)

Some like changes, and some do
not,
Without changes we remain in
one spot.

Give the word change a try,
to enhance your life,
and become alive.

by:Paula Strasburg

Kick Start...Changes ............Let's "QUACK" About it:)

Lets share the changes we have made in our lives
Changes we would like to make.
We are here to help and support you.
We are here for help too.

have a wonderful day,
keep on sparking :)
love and hugs, Paula :)
