WELCOME!!! AMYJO1967
We are so glad you found our team and decided to join us. It sounds like you do have a lot of health issues, but I'm guessing that if we can help you lose some of your weight, just maybe some of those health issues will resolve themselves.
Check out our threads, you are welcome to stop by every day and chat with us, that way we can help you stay on course and we can cheer for you when you achieve a goal. This team is very supportive and we will be more than happy to give you a kick in the pants if that is what you need too. We have a great group here so if you need help in finding anything just yell, someone will help find the answer.

Hi, I'm not at ALL new to SparkPeople, been around off and on for years. When I am ON, I always do better than when I am off, so I don't know why I don't just stay on all the time when it's clearly best for me!

Anyway, I have recently come back and started blogging daily with a short to-do list of goals, coming back on later to mark which ones I accomplished. Reading SparkGuy's emails I found out there was already an option to do this daily by changing my Start page to the SparkCoach start page! I just converted to that on Monday and I love it!

Reading thru more of his emails I found out about this team, so here I am! emoticon

I'm coming up on my 52nd birthday (eek!) and if I want to keep having them I have to stop fooling around with this healthy lifestyle stuff and truly embrace it! I weighed in Monday at 254.6 and I have knee issues - torn meniscus, sprained ACL, arthritis, a hip that occasionally decides it hates me, and I had rotator cuff repair surgery on my dominant arm in late September, so I'm still healing from that. My feet often hurt, as do my legs, and I have sleep apnea (use a CPAP)...oh yeah, and high blood pressure. So yes, I'm something of a train wreck, but I'm still above ground, so it's not too late!

I look forward to getting to know others on the team, and getting this weight back off - I lost 83 pounds in 2015-16 and was roughly 35 pounds from my goal weight. Emotional eating resulted in where I am today, wearing most of that weight again like an emotional fat-suit!

So that's probably more about me than you wanted to know, but if not, come check out my page and introduce yourself!

Rayetta, WELCOME!! to the Small Goals Commitment team! I am so glad that you found us.
We look forward to getting to know you as well. I am so sorry to hear about your illness but I applaud you for your determination to keep yourself healthy and strong as long as possible.
This team is very supportive and we will do all we can to encourage you and cheer you on, on this new journey. You said you can't exercise because of the illness, would it be possible to do some chair exercises? Spark People has some videos of chair exercises for those unable to do traditional exercises. If you need help in finding them just ask us.
GOD BLESS YOU!

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

Hi, My name is Rayetta. I am 53 years old and the mother of two. I have 2 grandchildren and a set of twins that I have adopted as grandchildren. My daughter is engaged to a young man that has twins. I have been overweight for what seems like forever and am trying to lose what I can. I had a real eye opener last year and am committed to doing my best. I was diagnosed with a terminal illness and am unable to exercise due to the illness, but I am going to do what I can. The illness isn't weight related, although losing weight will help me. So, here I am. I look forward to meeting fellow team mates. Wishing you all the best on your journeys.
