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. 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!

Welcome! This is a great place for encouragement, information and support! So just jump right in and have fun! There are a lot of great teams here to join that can help be more specific toward your interests. Sparkpeople really is great!

You should set up a page so you can be added as a friend and sent goodies. That's always fun!

Hi everyone. I am Lorri and I live in New Orleans and have struggled for years with yo yo diets. They have made me feel very discouraged and I really do not like the look of myself anymore. I have looked over this site this morning and really have enjoyed doing the low cardio video. I have plotted a walk to do this afternoon and am so impressed with the 'tools' on this site. Plus the food tracker seems really easy to do, so am looking forward to continuing on this site and hopefully will find some friends to compare notes with sometimes.
