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 am Vicki, 46 and am 44 lbs in to obese,so 235 lbs, I'll take 191 lbs right now which is just overweight. I must get out of being obese as I have too many health issues for someone my age. So I'll focus on the 44 lbs for now, once there I can focus on the rest. I don't workout regularly and I feel starvation strongly when I diet. Trying to workout strategies for those times. I am mom to 2 special needs boys and far away from my family, so looking for support online. Local buddies all seem to be on meds or had weight loss strategy or normal weight. Tricky stuff, nice to meet you.
