Welcome!!!! I too have a long journey ahead of me. What has really been working for me is taking my large goal (100 lbs) and breaking it into little chunklets (30 lb goals). I get really motivated by seeing my ticker move. Just remember WE can do it!!!
Welcome to SP. I wish you the very best on your journey to a healthier you.

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 *~

My name is Kassi, and I weigh 275 pounds. I am sick and I am heavy, and I am TIRED of it. I have finally realized that the only person who can change the way I feel about myself, and the way I treat my body, is me. I am on a journey to lose 100 pounds. It will be hard, and it will take time. I can't give up, I need this. I would love a strong support group, so add me! (:
A whole world is out there, waiting to be explored!
