No matter how slow you're going you're still lapping everyone on the couch :-)
YOU have to MAKE it happen.
Progress NOT perfection.

Hi Mica! 23 pounds is all you need to lose? Wow- Good for you for not letting yourself get too heavy! Many of us start this journey as technically obese...
Sometimes a small amount of weight is harder to lose, but don't get discouraged. Remember that it's not all about the scale; every time you work out, drink water, or eat fresh food, you are making yourself healthier, even if nothing changes on the scale.
Give us a little bit of info about you and maybe we can suggest some teams to join... by interests, age, location, goals, etc...

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. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. 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.
3. 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 *~
