    Hi Theresa
    and thanks for the comment on my page. I had wondered where you came from and just read where you posted on the 50+members with 100+ lbs to lose group. I see we share a lot in common coming from higher weights. So and easy is getting it for me. I fall off the wagon now and then. But it took me being so sick and housebound for a yr before family woke up to the fact they couldn't bring home all the extra junk "bad" stuff. I have re done recipes and learned what real portions. Now for exercise & me we are working on it. I don't have a lot of strength just yet but I will. I added you to my friends. So I can keep up with you...

    I've been a SPARKER for three months now and am thrilled with how well I've done to reach small goals. I drink my water now and exercise at least 10 minutes (actually more once I am started). I just know you can succeed, too. Sign in every single day and be honest with yourself. You can do this! I hope you are getting treatment for depression. I take Prozac and it makes me feel "normal."
