Okay Okay I know this is not my first attempt at losing this darn weight but I am determined to be successful this time. I AM!!! I was not ready for the challenge last time to even begin it let alone be successful. My attitude had not changed. I closed myself off from other people instead of trying to reach out and participate. Maybe I could have helped someone else and they could have helped me. I let a chance go to waste because I hadn't changed my mindset.

I feel like I am much more prepared mentally than I was before and I am making a strong effort to participate with other members more. My two worse habits were smoking and eating - I have succeeded in conquering my smoking habit and now it's time for the weight. :)

    Robbie, welcome to the Gardening Team! I see our Suzy beat me here, but I'm Donna, one of the leaders, and I, too, want to say, "Come on into our garden..."

    I hope you've had a chance to look at our Team Page, check out the first "sticky" topic and scan all the topics we're currently discussing. They're all listed on Page 1, so jump into any that strike your fancy.

    We've just had a new member, today, from the Mississippi Gulf coast; so I'll bet you and she have some gardening issues in common. We're all looking forward to getting to know you, so come on over and introduce yourself...

    Hi RJONES8194's. I got an e-mail that told me that you have joined my favorate team, gardening. So I popped in here to give you a hearty welcome to my favorite team. You can learn a lot in there about gardening. I have learned a little already. I do gardening too. I am also taking medicine for preventing seizures, so we, you and I, have something in common. I would like to be your friend, and I am adding you as my friend. I hope you will visit my spark page and see my grandchildren.
    Your friend, Susieq1947

    Hi there ma'am I was reading your thread about epilepsy. I have formed a team called Enjoying Life with Epilepsy because I have epilepsy. Please feel free to come on board. It would be a great pleasure to have you be apart of the team.
