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. I live in Green - not too far north of you! Good luck! Sheila

well so far I've cut out soda's and sugar and it's killing me LOL... I cook only vegetables and eat fruit and fish and chicken. I can tell I have more energy and down three pounds so far and still have till Wednesday for my week weigh in. I'm striving to lose total of five pounds for the week, so we shall see. How are you doing this week? Are you exercising any? I'm not but about to start step aerobics. What kind of food are you hooked on that will be hard to give up? 1679 days ago
