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!

Hi everyone, I've been using SP for a few weeks now with quite a bit of success so far. A bit about me:

I'm 22, I live in Canada. My highest weight ever was 181lbs, and I started my weight loss journey in September 2011. My current weight is 147lbs, and when I signed up with Spark People it was 155. My goal for right now is to weigh 141lbs for my 23rd birthday on June 8th, as that was my all time lowest, which I hit at the beginning of last April. Ultimately, I'd like to weigh in at 130lbs.

If anyone has similar goals to me, I'd love to be Spark Buddies! Hope you are all well. :)
