Welcome to SparkPeople. We are so glad to have you here with us. I used to feel the same way except I had my kids but as I got older I gained so much weight that I know I was headed for a wheel chair. I am so thankful to God for sending my daughter to introduce me this wonderful place to me. It is a big help in my life and keeps me going. Just remember that it is a journey of one day at a time. I am glad to meet you.
