Welcome, Kim. I read your Spark Page and feel sad that you have lost yourself as a person. This journey to a healthier lifestyle must include finding the person that you are. With your large family, it would be easy to be so busy taking care of everyone other than yourself.

I'm so glad that you said you have to work hard to reach your goals. I never wish anyone good luck on this journey because the road to victory is long and treacherous and demands a lot of hard work, perseverance & determination but you are no longer alone.

Besides using all the tools available here, like tracking your nutrition & fitness daily and drinking more water and watching your portion sizes, be sure to read success stories for motivation.

Join all the teams that interest you and stay in contact often with your team members. I reply to my messages every day especially to welcome new members. This journey is all about support and encouragement. How can we do this if we do not stay in touch often thru our messages? How will we know one of our friends has stumbled and needs a helping hand to get up unless we have stayed in touch? How can we all celebrate together when we reach our goals if we haven't stayed on the journey together? It can't be done alone.

I just joined a couple of days ago and I have been looking around, learning the site. I love it!

So, just wanted to introduce myself, and hopefully a make a few friends.

My name is Kim, I am married with six children, five of them still at home, ranging in age from 11 to 21 (5 boys, 1 girl). I have three dogs (love my dogs!...oh, Love my kids too! emoticon ), and one cat, a lonely cat (his BF was killed two nights ago, which was the neighbors cat emoticon ).

I have always had a weight problem, and I am so tired of it. I want to live! So, that means that I have to work really hard, and I have my fingers crossed that I won't fail this time. I can't fail, can't afford to fail. I want to be healthy for my kids and husband, but I am at the point where I really and truly believe that I have to do this for ME.

So, hope I make some great friends here!

Kim
