Hi and welcome to the team.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

Actions speak louder than words.

Don't worry if you falter now and then, just be sure to try again. A little bit of healthy guilt can work wonders.

Smile and make somene's day.

emoticon Hi Cate! Welcome to the beginning of your healthy lifestyle. Diets don't work, but making small changes to the way you live does work.
emoticon Most of us are here for the long haul, so feel free to get to know us. Questions ... wonderful, that's the only way we learn. Aha moments ... share them. We love them and they even open some doors for us to get further in our journey. Rants and pity parties ... well, I guess. I will warn you though … this is a pretty upbeat bunch of people you'll be talking to.
emoticon Check out a few Spark Pages. You'll soon find some like minded people to hook up with as friends. Join a few teams. I find that the challenge team motivates me when I don’t feel like doing what I know I should.
emoticon Don’t let all the information that is here overwhelm you. Just try to make two or three small changes, and when you've got them mastered, and then move on. Before you know it, you'll be amazed at how long you been here and how far you have come!

Hi!
My name is Cate and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. My friend suggested I try Sparkspeople to help me get down 60lbs. I need to lose weight because I have unmanageable Hypertension...I have side-effects (one time it put me in Emergency)with all the medications they try on me. All my tests to determine what is wrong come back NORMAL: I just had a Renal Kidney test on Monday and again normal... even though a blood test came back with low renal function. My blood pressure problem started before I was overweight. No doctor has ever told me that the medications they put me on were causing the weight gain. A recent pill, made me gain 8lbs in a month. I don't overeat, don't "emotional" eat, I do eat organically when I can and I just stopped eating fructose corn syrup. I am married and next week it will be 26 years. I have one child, a son, 13...our little miracle baby. I am going raw food during the day and then having a meal with my family at night. I look forward to getting to know how this works being on a team and hoping that this will work because I have about run out of options. I look forward to getting to know you.
