TIME FOR CHANGES is NOW!! No more sitting and doing nothing about what I want. I have known all along what I needed to do but just didn't have the motivation to get off my "booty" and do it. Enough is Enough. Why?......... Because I have been with Spark People since 3/08. My goodness 3 years have gone by and I have only lost 10 lbs. Going up and down 5 lbs or so like a YO YO!! When I first signed up, my page title was "2008: Going for the GUSTO", what a flop I was on that one. I suppose not a total flop, cause I have maintained my weight for a few years and I didn't gain weight. Which means I have at least been conscious of what I have been eating and trying to stay within certain ranges. I am a TURQUOISE DIVA SISTER!! We work it with DAZZLING DIVA STYLE!! I am a divorced mother of 3 children (Daughter-Melissa-25; Son-Joshua-22; and Son-Ryan-19). I also have on grandson (Javier Jr.-4yrs old. As of approximately 7 years ago, I was diagnosed with severe depression, hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and severe insomnia and haven't been able to work. My occupation for the previous years before that was Office Manager/Full Charge Bookkeeper. I heard about this site from a fellow goal buddy on Biggest Loser Club program. I decided to check it out and found myself intrigued and decided to join. This site was very encouraging. Needless to say I ended up leaving the BLC web site and found Spark People to be a better deal, not only because it's free, but there were a few other things that I liked better than the BLC. And today I decided I really need to get OFF this BIG TUFF I have and start doing something about it and I know a big KEY to this journey is going to be BLOGGING. I don't know why that it is so hard for me to BLOG about myself. Neverthess, as hard as it may be, I am going to do it. So hopefully I can be a person of my word and accomplish something positive by the end of this year. I have finally ended the 9 yr very bad relationship that I was in. It is definitely a step in the right direction. No love loss there on that one. It's over and I'm FREE!!

    Hello and welcome to,

    Hi Anna,
    Welcome to sparks. You have come to the right place for reaching your health and weight loss goals.

    I see you have already joined some teams, this is great because you will find the teams are built on hobbies/interest, weight goals, or a more personal variety (like thyroid issues). The teams are a great source of encouragement and information.

    Weight loss and developing a healthy lifestyle takes time and patience, but with these you will be successful. I wish you the best meeting your goals.
