WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

Greetings Everyone! I've been an inactive SP member for quite awhile and thought I'd give it a try again. I've always had a healthy and very active lifestyle until two years ago when my running came to a halt after surgery. Having found that walking does not get my cardio up and my metabolism has dropped, I've added weight. With that said, I have hired a trainer and am swimming and building my core almost every day and hiking on the weekends. My biggest challenge is to keep positive with myself and not get down because of the changes my body's going through. Life is good and I'm blessed to be active again
