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 *~

Hi, my name is Morgan. I am a 24 year old mom looking for tips, motivation, and hopefully some friends. A little background: I was in great shape my entire life up until college. I was in a bad car accident that caused a back injury that had me stuck in bed for quite a while. I gained 100 lbs and turned into an unhealthy person that is so not me. Now, about 6 years later, I'm still in this rut. I have to get back to being healthy and will do whatever it takes. I miss the person I really am, and I hate the unhealthy, insecure person I have become. I need to set a good example for my child. I am currently dealing with hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue. Both have gotten better with treatment, but I believe getting back to the gym and eating better will help eliminate these problems. If you made it through my rambling thanks for reading!
