I'm BAAAAACK! and ready to Rock n Roll with the SparkPeople.

Thursday, April 08, 2010

I came to SparkPeople originally in July '09.

UnfortunatelyI was totally overwhelmed with all that was available with SparkPeople!

There are SO MANY resources, and so many WONDERFUL people just waiting to jump in and support anyone wishing to succeed.

I met lots of really great people!
I shared ideas, chit chat, support, and fell in love with this site.

However, I wasn't ready.
I was struggling to understand how to begin. There was so much information and options, and places to go and look into, information overload was easily my problem. I backed off and kept this place in the back of mind, and of course in my favorites on my computer.

I hoped that I wouldn't be deleted too quickly from the system and I hoped even more that one day soon I'd be ready to try again. *sigh.

Here I am!

Summer is comming and we've already had some quite warm temps. I dread being too hot this summer because I am overdressed to cover my chubbiness.

My Goal now is to have less weight on my body so that I feel more comfortable in summer clothing.

Thank you SPARKPEOPLE for not deleting my page in my absence! emoticon

Thank you to everyone who rallied around me when I first joined and encouraged me and made me feel that I was sincerely welcome here. That feeling has lasted and I kept thinking how wonderful it will be to return here to the sparkpeople community.

Let's all Rock on to success!

    Welcome back! I felt the same as you when I started SP (also last July), it was hard to know what to look at first! I agree with Val, take it slow and slowly, it is like osmosis....the resources, etc., are 'just there' and no longer so overwhelming.

    I've also faltered over the last 4 months....I think a lot of us have
    our times when we get off track. The main thing is - getting back on track and really making an effort to stay there - and accepting that there may be some small bumps along the way.

    Good luck to you! You CAN do this!

    WELCOME BACK!!! Yup, SP with all it's great features and tools can be overwhelming, so this time ... take it slow ... Sparking shouldn't be a burden, you should take out of it what you need and want. We are all here to help you out if you need it.
