I'm Melissa! Or Mel! Or whatever you want to call me! I'm a Christian. I love Jesus with everything I am! If you have a problem with that, well, too bad! If you wanna know more, just ask! I have given EVERYTHING I am and EVERY part of my life over to Him! He controls every detail, and it usually shows! I am a freshman in the best college EVER, studying to evangelize to high school- and college-age kids. Yes, I'm a crazy person. I'm very outspoken about my beliefs, but I'm also very friendly and nice, as long as you don't mind hearing my two cents! I don't swear, and I'd rather not hear it if you can curb it, but I prolly won't say anything if you do. I don't care who or what you are, I'll be your friend. I'll be nice, I'll listen, I'll try to help, if I can. I'll keep your confidence as long as it's nothing life-threatening. Basically, the Bible is God's word, therefore, if He said it, it's 100% true, I believe it, and I live by it. As long as you're cool with that, we'll get along just fine. I have friends who are definitely NOT Christians, and I love them to death, so I'll more than likely love you, too! (Not in THAT way.) God has commanded that we love everyone as He loves everyone, so I do. I LOVE chocolate! I can't remember the last time I've gone a day without it! Several years running now. I LOVE music! All kinds but screamo, and the harder and louder, the better! I don't listen to mainstream, though, although some of the bands you listen to, I probably listen to, too, because a lot of my favorite Christian bands have hit the mainstream! My FAVE band? FAMILY FORCE 5!!! I also love Red, Skillet, Flyleaf, Emery, Decyfer Down, Disciple, Eleventyseven, the Showdown, and many, many more that I can't even BEGIN to cover! Name a band, and I'll tell you if it's Christian or not. If it is, I prolly listen to it. If it's not, then I prolly don't. Anything else you want to know? Just ask!

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    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 you might 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.


    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!
