    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    I saw you on the mom and dad team page and I just wanted to say way to go! I know it can be hard with the whole weight loss thing, and getting healthy, I am there myself, I have my own set of health issues, so if you ever need a buddy, I am there for you. You are definitely on the right track, and this is the right place to be, lots of friendly people here! emoticon

    I saw on the huddle wall that you need support. Don't give up on yourself! You don't have to make a lot of huge changes right away. Just pick one or two healthy eating or fitness goals each week. Once you have mastered them, then add in new goals. Remember that slow and steady really will win this race.

    I saw you posted on the Official Healthy Family Makeover Challenge Team Huddle (that's a mouthful!) that you needed support. I hope everything is going okay. Look forward to tomorrow with hope and optimism and give it everything you have!

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Happy New Year and congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you! I'm glad you're 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 - 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' - 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 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!
