"The morns are meeker than they were, The nuts are getting brown; The berry's cheek is plumper, The rose is out of town. The maple wears a gayer scarf, The field a scarlet gown. Lest I should be old-fashioned, I'll put a trinket on." --Emily Dickinson

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. 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! *~ Paula *~

Hi Cean and welcome to spark! I am sure you will have a great journey and everyone here is willing to help you if you need any help. With that said I would look for some teams to join and the best way for you to find teams for you would be to put some of the things you put down about your self in the sparkteam search bar. Good luck on your journey!!!

...today is my first day on SparkPeople. My sister suggested I try out the site a few months ago, and I just ran across the invitation e-mail again today while I was cleaning out my inbox (a task that was long overdue). So, by way of introducing myself, here's a bit about me:
My name is Cean. I am an English nerd as well as a gaming and Sci-Fi / Fantasy nerd. I have aspirations to be an educator. This semester, I am taking up theatre (tech only) again for the first time in years and am planning on picking up swordwork again in the near future.
Hello, all. Best of luck with your goals and health/fitness aspirations.
