Welcome Annie!

You came to the right place for support, that's for sure! The people here have greeted me with open (online) arms. The encouragement is really helping me stay focused; I hope it'll help you too.

Those who say it can't be done are usually interrupted by those already doing it.

Hello there,

My name is Annie and I'm a 40-year-old mom of two teenagers.

I found my way to sparkpeople.com after picking up People's annual "How They Did It: Half Their Size" issue; I've picked up this issue every year and always say, "This year, I will get motivated" only to forget the magazine in a drawer or under a pile of newspapers. However, I was reading how one woman utilized sparkpeople.com in her weight loss journey and decided that I would check out the site when the time dictated. That time was today.

I stepped on my wiifit board and was surprised to hear "OH! It appears the weight limit has been exceedeed.....blahblahblah". I was shocked. I knew I have gained a lot of weight but never expected a video game to reject me. After some tears I picked up the People magazine and read the article again. That is what brought me here.

I have struggled for many years with my weight, which I realize is not at all unique. I just want this year to count. I NEED this year to count. I need to get healthy. I WANT to get healthy.

I don't know if this is the type of introduction that people give, but this is why I'm here and I am hopeful that sparkpeople.com will help in my personal journey to a healthy, happy life.
