    emoticon Greetings and emoticon to the message boards!!

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting more active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support, as you may have already discovered over the years!

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams I like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

    If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

    emoticon

    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

    I'm back after losing weight and then gaining it back. If you still need a weight loss buddy to keep you focused, let me know. I have a 10 year old who keeps me very busy. I'm coaching her softball team and spent the day at the part without planning food for the day so I really over ate and my thought is "It was opening day!" I've got to take the time to plan meals or I'll be eating at the snack bar twice a week (with no healthy food choices!)

    Hey there, thanks for stopping by my blog...As for the resonation, like attracts like...I'm glad to see you are getting on the road to better health along with hubby. It must be nice working together on this...

    Here is the site where I found the Eating Disorder Anonymous workbook. If you want to print it, you can only do 2 pages at a time and it takes a while but I think it is worth it. Have look and see...
