emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you havenít, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!

Hello and Welcome!
One of the best ways to stay motivated and accountable is to join and be active on a few Spark Teams that interest you.
Just start out doing a 10 minutes of exercise daily and then building up to 30 minutes or more.
Also track you food on the Nutrition tracker.

Best of luck to you. You can do it!

I need help. Turned 58 this year and a bout with the flu sent me to the emergency room where I was cautioned about my glucose and blood pressure. Had some serious losses and big changes over the past 2 years and tired of putting myself last. But it gets more difficult to focus on a plan of action. Just so much more easier to dive into a pint of blue bell. So how to I keep the jump start moving. No I don`t want a shoulder to cry on or a partner for a pity party. I want an emotional kick in the butt.
