(Hi, I have been over weight for way... to long.. it is time to get rid of this weight and keep it off and live. I am looking at some options that are out there.) ... (2014) I said this in January 2010. I was 330lbs and I was the most unhappy, depressed person I knew. I had to do something I was looking for a quick fix but I knew that was not the answer but I sought out surgery.
After finding out I could not have the surgery due to a medical problem I knew I had to do something and that is when things changed I was serious It was die young of obesity or live and I wanted to live.. I found spark that year in April I had already lost 30 lbs and I knew I needed support but I found much more.. not only from the professional staff of spark but the community that is here not sure how many members are on spark but these members will be there for you through everything.. to me they are not members they are my virtual life line which I plug into everyday of my life for motivation, support and encouragement that is why I am still here that is why I have lost 100lbs the spark way.. NO the road was not all smooth and paved with pillows there where detours, pot holes , traffic jams and down right roads under construction but one thing for sure is I did not have to travel it alone and I still don't.. I have Spark and the wonderful community.

    Hi Anita, I see you and Anitacraftygirl are friends and she is so cool you will just love her. I have mainly been walking for my exercise. I don't think I have quite as much discipline as you do but I did walk a 5k for the first time which was cool. I know I need to do the strengthening stuff too but the first time I did some squats I didn't think I would be able to squat again for the rest of my life!! But you are inspiring me to do more. Keep up the emoticon job your doing!! Talk to ya soon emoticon Robin
