UPDATE!!!
10/11/06 I am down one pants size (from a 20 down to a 18)!!!!! I was so happy today when I fit into a new pair of work pants I bought and they did not fit like second skin :)

I have never been "skinny" in fact I have been overweight pretty much my entire life. A few years ago I lost over 50 lb and felt great but it all came back and then after I moved to Illinois from Charleston, SC i put on even more. I went from going out dancing almost every weekend and having a high activity level job to not working at all and not getting to go dancing anymore. On top of that I now realize I have been going thru a mild depression for the last 3 years I have lived here. It has been hard on me living where I don't know anyone, missing my family, and the culture is nothing like it was back in SC. It is almost like I have moved to a different country, things are that different. Now I have decided I hate being 230+ lbs. I don't expect to get down to a size 2 or anything but I do want to be a size 11/12. I think, no make that I KNOW I can do it!!! I will post updates (whenever I hit a milestone of some kind) so I can show myself how far I have come.

    Hello. I was just browsing the site, and came across your page.
    ( I am hoping you will read this in it's entirety), so you don't miss any little detail.. .

    I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to our team. It is called "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".
    It is a forum that my wife (Tickle*Me*Pink-aka Carol) formed. At first, it was for people with a disabitliy,but now it's expanded to everyone..disability or no disability. As a matter of fact, more then 1/2 of the group do not have a disability. Carol says "well, if there are angels, they're all here because it's like a bunch of angels carrying all of us to our goals"

    The link is located on my sparkpage, (it's a cartoon drawing of my wife in her wheelchair, with a dalmation chasing some diet soda balloons LOL she drew it herself!) and the main discussion room is still named "disabilties group".
    People post their successes in life,their obstacles, their personal stories, motivation to succeed, advice, different health obstacles, parents' topics, different age rooms, losing baby fat, books insight, crafts, literary, recipes, motivation..etc.etc..and there's even a thread for jokes(to name only a few).. There are many little challenges posted , to give us a little added "spark", too.. (maybe you can come up with a challenge too--all you need to do is to contact Tickle*Me*Pink through sparkmail or check out her sparkpage..)..if you don't feel up to a challenge for now, you will definately find comfort and encouragement in any of the rooms you browse in...

    I was hoping that you will click the link, join the group, and come to post in the main room,("disabilities group forum") & maybe share some of your own successes,obstacles, goals, etc..for us to all get aquainted,better. As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.

    I hope you will click on my sparkpage, and add a comment if you need any questions answerred. (or you can sparkmail Carol or myself..we are more then willing to help)

    Jack
    p.s.(sometimes, my message I want to put on your page may come out more then once. If this does happen, please forgive me in advance,sparkmail me to let me know, so I don't do it again.. also, I am French, and try my best to translate to English, so I wrote this before I found your page, so I could spell check it, and copy and paste it here for you, once it was okay. If there are still some mistakes, I appologize.)

    .I admit.. this invite is a bit long..you'll be surprised though..when you read my posts in the forum..they are short.. well.. except for some of the jokes..which I am trying to shorten LOL (I just wanted to tell you as much as I could here, to make you comfortable and familiar and to feel welcomed){actually so much more I could say about the O.O forum..just don't want to take up all that space}

    We hope to welcome you!
    (my wish is that everyone on sparkpeople has a place to meet.(.wether they attend to other groups,that's always okay)..but I feel it is important that there is a place like that.. this is why I'm so THRILLED TO INVITE YOU TO "O.O."
    PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you..I know they'll be almost as delighted as we are to welcome you to the" place where people with "spark" or.. as Carol says it so well "place where angels congregate"!! (You will like her. she loves to listen & help..she was a councellor before she ended up in her wheelchair.)
