emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
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!

I weighed 236lbs in 2011. I lost 56lbs over the course of 2 years. I've gained back around 12lbs and never got to my goal weight of 170lbs. I'm at 192 now and would love to get to 170 or below to be at a normal BMI for once in my life! I had a trainer who helped me loose about 20 of those lbs. She was very motivating. I stopped going because I got busy last year and I stopped making fitness a priority. I slowly started gaining back and now I am slowly getting motivated again. I used spark people at 236lbs and am hoping it will help me again!!
