Getting Started

Thursday, July 11, 2019

I'm new to the SparkPeople community. I've been fighting with chronic migraines and fibromyalgia for years and had surgery 5/7/19 to replace a cervical disk that was compressing my spinal cord, causing quite a bit of havoc. The good news is no more nerve pain! The bad news is I've gained a lot of weight, I'm completely weak and going to have to do a lot to build back up and she'd some pounds. That's ok though. We'll call this day one on the road better health! We can all do this for ourselves and our loved ones!

    elcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. You have to make you #1 and tell yourself that you are worth it. And remember you didn't gain the weight overnight and you won't lose it overnight. It takes time, determination, motivation and support. You can get it all right here! If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else. If I can help in anyway, feel free to reach out to me! You can do it! We are here to help! Welcome and get active on this site. emoticon
