Hi ~ Welcome to SparkPeople. I find that interacting with other Sparks is really the best way to stay motivated and on-track. Taking advantage of the educational aspects of SP is also key to weight loss goal success. Come back to the message boards and read blogs to find people that you feel like you would like to "friend" These folks will help you attain your goals.

For any questions you have if you can't find them on the site, e-mail They will answer your questions and help you out.
Best of luck emoticon

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little more than two 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 haven’t, 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!

Hi... I'm new...

I need to break up with bad foods, especially carbs, and this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I quit smoking cold turkey a few years ago but that was a joke compared to learning to eat right and taking care of myself.

Food has always been there for me, in good times and bad. It was used as a reward during good times and a comfort through bad.... and its time for that to change.

A little about me. I'm 31, from Newfoundland Canada. I'm a full time student and I work part time. I am in a committed relationship with the most encouraging and loving man I've ever known and I am very luck to have him.

I am impulsive, and stubborn, and a bit of a control freak. I don't trust people easily and I'm fairly certain that I use my weight as a barrier to keep people away. I have a messed up family but the best mom a girl could ask for. I have lots of stories about heartbreak but I wont bore you with those.

I'm looking for support. I am in desperate need of support. I've tried other websites and meeting and have never quite found what I'm looking for... I really hope this is different.
