    WELCOME to Sparks and OO!
    You're no longer alone!
    You’ve most definitely come to the right place!
    You’re about to make many a new friend!
    All of whom are also turning their lives around and will be there to support, and
    motivate! I wish you nothing but the best of success! So glad you have joined us!
    1.If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW. Not for any grand cause, necessarily...but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.

    You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. HAVE FUN. DIG DEEP. STRETCH. DREAM BIG. Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days. And there will be bad days. There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

    PERSIST. Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

    TRUST. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lazy afternoons. Of lasting friends. Of all the things that will cross your path this year.

    The start of something new brings the hope of something great. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE There is only one you. And you will pass this way only once. Do it right.


    1. Your presence is a present to the world
    2. You're unique and one of a kind
    3. Your life can be what you want it to be
    4. Take the days just one at a time
    5. Count your blessings, not your troubles
    6. You'll make it through with whatever comes along
    7. Within you are so many answers
    8. Understand, have courage, be strong
    9. Don't put limits on yourself
    10. So many dreams are waiting to be realized
    11. Decisions are too important to leave to chance
    12. Reach for your peak, your goal, your prize
    13. Nothing wastes more energy than worrying
    14. The longer one carries a problem, the heavier it gets
    15. Don't take things too seriously
    16. Live a life of serenity
    17. Not a life of regrets
    18. Remember that a little love goes a long way
    19. Remember that a lot goes for ever

    Hello ! I'm just so thrilled you've joined us !! --You'll notice that this letter is going to be a little long, I hope I don't leave you feeling overwhelmed, but, I want you to know a few things, so that you have insight & are not left feeling apprehensive in any way (left hanging).

    Warm welcomes to the Overcoming Obstacles family!" ("O.O." for short lol) (A place where people share successes, common goals and LOVE) I can recommend reading some of the past posts, to become familiar . Then, maybe post what ever you feel comfortable with.. There are quite a few different topics listed,as you will see.. like "jokes" or "motivation", "wheres' everyone from", "weigh in room" etc..(all generously created by the OO family)
    I hope you will come and introduce yourself in the "disabilities group forum" topic, and reply to any of the ones already created, & if you'd like..create a topic you may find helpful. There are many little challenges posted too, to give us a little "spark", and to be able to meet as many awesome people as possible, and find that you may have things in common with others that you never thought you might :o) The "disabilities group forum" (marked as "sticky topic" is the main discussion area, even though many of the team doesn't have a disability, and some do, it is for everyone (doesn't matter where we are from, what our faith is, etc.) to congregate in, and know they are NOT alone.
    I really look forward to reading your posts & coming to know you.. :o) .. Hope you'll be patient though, because even though I read the posts, I may not be able to respond right away. But, if I see something in the forum, where I can help someone in need, I will research and research to make sure I'll find some answers. (my husband , slapojacks - aka...Jack & many of the other team members, are the exact same way..) (well, you'll see what I mean if you get a chance to look at the past posts) I can't say enough about the people in OO, it's very harmonistic, and it really gives us the feeling that we belong somewhere in this world, where others don't see any of us as "overweight," but they see us as "beautiful people who were just steered down the wrong "food" path.

    I do want you to know, too.. I was a councellor before I ended up in my wheelchair, and if you ever want prayers, or vent, chat, laugh, be motivated or want insight in ANY way at all.. I hope you will feel free and confident to contact me at any time..... sparkmail is an awesome feature, & I promise I am confidential and will either make you laugh, or give you insight, or make you feel good about being YOU :o) I receive sparkmails everyday from people in difficult areas, and I really feel a sense of purpose, knowing that I am helping. (Also have to mention, coach_jen is (on my sparkpage) and if you have a question for her regarding exercise, or nutrition, or spark details, she is very willing to help. (She used to work at the Y helping children with disabilities enjoy a healthy lifestyle)...leave her a brief message on her sparkpage to let her know to leave you her email address on your page.. or.. I can give you her email ..it is jen@sparkpeople.com .. & you can tell her that I recommended you )

    (You'll also see a BUNCH of FUN on my sparkpage..hope you'll come take a peek)
    ~ Challenges are now listed at the bottom of my sparkpage, to make it easier to find the challenges that may suit your needs~

    My prayer is this: Overcoming Obstacles becomes a meeting place for every sparkpeople.com member to congregate in. ( and if time or other groups are " an obstacle" then even if it's to come and say hello, or share a smile "O.O." should be that place!.)

    I created this forum out of love, and that's what you will find.." angels who carry one another to our goals."
    (those are my beliefs,,, but.. to me, doesn't matter what anyone's faith is, this is a place for ALL of us.)

    (I really don't like giving UNSOLICITATED ADVICE..I don't like getting it, and I don't like giving it)..{ I like advice, if of course I ask for it, and I like to give it, only if someone comes to me and asks.} I can give you a couple of things you may want to add to your "daily goals" list,..though..these are only to make sure you are always feeling good about yourself

    1-Remind yourself of your successes, no matter how small.
    2- Say I like myself 5 times, all at once.. (this will show you how others see you..and you will never forget, if you make a daily "things to do list".)

    Well, I am one to give credit where it's due here...
    CHRIS (aka SPARKGUY) is an absolutely amazing person, and has created this wonderful site to share with the world..yet many people are still missing out.
    {PLEASE, FEEL FREE TO INVITE IN EVERYONE .. I have to brag about my husband too.. we did up flyers and hung them up all around the city, (Even outside of Bally's gym LOL), rolling around in our wheelchairs, and received a great response. :o)}
    . I know you're gonna love it in OO..& everyone is gonna LOVE you!
    Love, Prayers, and TICKLES,
    CAROL.

    p.s... if you feel up to hosting a challenge.. it can be a week, month, ongoing, or any length you feel comfortable about... it can be about any topic under the sun... all I ask is that you'll sparkmail me and give me the details before you post your challenge by the Thursday before you want to begin your challenge in OO, so that I can let everyone know by posting it on my sparkpage.
    Love,Carol
