So I've been on Spark before. One time I was pretty serious about it. I then gained some weight back and tried to rejoin it several times. Now I'm heavier than the heaviest I was when I joined Spark the first time. I'm not one of those people who can half ass this. I'm not one of those girls and I'll never be one of those girls who can weigh 110 pounds and eat a double cheeseburger and large fries and have nothing happen. My metabolism is slow, I have obesity in my family, and the odds are ...

I'm not one of those girls and I'll never be one of those girls who can weigh 110 pounds and eat a double cheeseburger and large fries and have nothing happen. My metabolism is slow, I have obesity in my family, and the odds are against me. That just means I have to work harder. And I intend to.

Hi Linda

You have chosen to embark on a great journey to health and fitness and you'll make some great new Spark Friends along the way!
And it's easy if you follow these guidelines...

You are not alone on this journey. We do not stand in front or behind but beside each other. You can do this. Don't get down if you make a mistake but get back up and do it again and again until you get it right. It will happen. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but you will do it if you believe in yourself. Find that strength deep inside and bring it out. Don't jump into a decision to quit and then regret it. Even a small victory is a step ahead. SparkPeople believes in you and now it is time for all of us to believe in ourselves.

Hi Linda. I'm adding you and will try and stop by your blog at least once a week. I'm spending a lot of time doing yard work so not as much computer time which is why it probably won't be more often than that. I'll be cheering you on even when I don't get a chance to stop by.
