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 RLDAVIS and welcome to Spark!! I wish you luck on your journey here!!
Welcome! This is a great place to give and to get support and ideas.
I would say, start slowly. Pick a few things to work on and make them really solid habits (getting 8 glasses of water and tracking food, for example). Then add something else. Starting slowly helps prevent you from getting overwhelmed.
Explore all of the tools here and the articles. Decide what looks interesting and make use of them.
At some point, I would also encourage you to set up a SparkPage and write a couple of blogs. It's a great way for people to directly support you.
Again, welcome. Enjoy your journey!
