    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    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!

    Staying with this for two years is a HUGE accomplishment, because you know how many others began when you did and they QUIT. What you have done is just wonderful.
    So happy YOU kept working on your goals and loved yourself. Bless your heart. Next year will be even better! emoticon

    Hey Lady. Thanks for adding me as a friend. I've done the same. Also, congratulations on the awesome progress you've made. I'm kind of at a standstill with a stress fracture in my foot and unable to hike, but hopefully in a couple of months I'll be back on the trail. Happy hiking to you!

    Hi, I am new to the AT Trail group and saw you were in the challenge to walk the miles. Did you see the new 100 mile 2 week challenge to walk with Terri when she is in Maine. It starts Aug 8th. I am doing 20 min equals a minute, but I am going to try! I see you have cabins in No Ga I have a house in Dahlonega and will move there when I sell my house in FL. I hope I get up there next year.. Got to get in shape! Hope to see you on the AT group and would be nice if you even joined in this challenge.. would help move you along the other challenge! Keep working!
