Welcome!
I have been a "sparkie" for 17 days! I love everything. Take the time to really use the site, it will provide you with a solid support base. Having a spark page is a great way to meet others, it encourages others to stop by and say hello!
Best of luck on your journey...you did the hard part now keep it up emoticon

Look at a day where you are extremely satisfied at the end. It is not a day when you lounge around doing nothing, it is when you have had everything to do and you have done it.

If you want help, it's here!!

I've never found anything so great!! I used to go to Weight Watchers, but this is better. When I went to WW it wasn't enough to go just once a week. I love that you have to check in here everyday. The health articles are amazing.

The success stories are great to read. Other people have made great changes in their lives. It seems that when they lose the weight, they gain so much more. You can do this too and someday I'll be reading your success story.

Sometimes you just have to take the leap and grow your wings on the way down.

The main thing is to not give up. Everyone has a bad day, just start over, even if it is on meal at a time. Make your small changes first and keep going.

Hey there! I agree with everyone else. Just takes things in small steps! That has been the beauty of this program so far....they aren't asking you to change everything at once and all it takes is a little time and patience! Great to hear from everyone!

Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling!

Stick to it and stay encourgaged, being only a few weeks into this, I think it will take us awhile to feel fully connected. You did the right thing by calling for encouragement we are all here and learning together. Stick to it.

Hi everyone - I agree with lynnsparks change takes time. We live in a society that wants immediate results. Weight loss (especially for women) does not work that way. It is hard to stay motivated but I think SP helps with that - knowing that we are not alone in our struggles - is a huge help (for me at least) Go team - lets show them that our team (SP Class of 20-26) is the best. We can put up the numbers in excercise and nutrition and we will lose weight. We can do it - Good luck to you all, Jill

I am new to (well for a few weeks now). Take baby steps. You didn't get here all in one day, and You can't change it all in one day. Check the site out, there is great information everywhere. Just take your time, and change gradually,then it will stick.

Always be the best you can be.....Lynn

You are on the right path. Starting was the first step and just put your next foot out there and take that step. We are all on the path with you. Close your eyes and take a deep breathe. You are a strong person and YOU CAN DO THIS.
