Hi and welcome to the team! emoticon emoticon
Weight gain from medication is certainly not a great side effect but when you need the medication,it's not an option not to take it.
Let go of the guilt-that will not help anything-and take it one day at a time.
You have come to a great place to make a difference in your life.
Just take it one day at a time and you will see results in no time.

emoticon Hello there and emoticon to Spark People and to our team!

What I love on Spark People is that the support is unlimited! You need motivation, read up on the success stories and/or post a query and someone will be there to help you along. It is always difficult to start something new but Spark People make it so easy for us all to achieve our ultimate goals. Take it step by step: a) study the site, b) incorporate good habits from the beginning, c) start exercising, etc.

As co-leader of this team I recommend that you check out the following link. This will inform you as to what is available to you on Spark People. Very useful ... It will actually help you get set up on SP.


Good luck on your journey and if you need help at any point, just drop me a line and I'll get back to you pronto. emoticon

This is a lot of hard work on this journey, but it's so worth it. You will not only tackle the physical weight you've added, but you'll also find yourself dealing with the emotional issues that put that weight there. That's why I love this site. There is so much support. No matter what issue you find yourself having to deal with, chances are there is someone else there too, and there are others who've been there with advice and support to help you through it.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Well you found the right place. Step one forget the guilt. Guilt weighs way to much. You will find your path when you let go of all that garbage and as wise yoda says do or do not. If you are true to yourself you will have more for your child. There will be ups and downs but you can do this! Find your personal driving force yet let others help you.

Cheers to your success.
