emoticon SKYLARK44 and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Welcome to our SparkFamily!

You've already proven your tried and true caretaker skills, now it's time to use them on YOURSELF! :-) If you had a good friend who was in the same position you are in, what would you offer yourself?

There are wonderful tools here such as the fitness and nutrition trackers. More than that there are some really smart, supportive, generous people around here with whom you can connect and return the favor of YOUR support and knowledge.

To get the most from SparkPeople I highly recommend that you start up your own SparkPage, browse other SparkPages, check out various SparkTeams of interest and start sharing your questions and post blogs and message threads about your trials, tribulations and SUCCESSES!

Stick with the SPARK and we'll ALL reach our health and wellness goals TOGETHER! :-)

My name is Diana and I am a over weight unhealthy person who has sat and watched life pass her by. I was recently told I have diabetes and with weight reduction I can come off of medication. For the past 18 plus years I have helped care for Alzhemiers patient and now I promised for the next year I will take care of me.I have 4 grown sons , 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. That alone should give me the motivation to get my act together.Most of my friends have no weight problem so they don't understand why I decline the girls night out where dinner and drinks are on the list.I guess when I heard of this page I came here for support and frindship from people who know and have experienced this hurt we all share.
