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 and welcome aboard! I guarantee you will not be disappointed in your decision in joining Sparkpeople (if you do it right)! I will admit the results will vary due to your efforts and your honesty towards yourself. I do wish you the best in your Sparkpeople journey and if you should need some words of encouragement or motivation, hit me up as a Spark-friend? If you have any questions; feel free to send me a spark-mail. If you have some spare time, please visit my spark-page and read some of my spark-blogs (located on the right hand side of my Spark-page). Also please take a look at my Spark-page Photo album and witness a true transformation of my accomplishments Before and Recent). If you have any problems of seeing my Spark page; shoot me a Spark-mail and Ill add you as a friend. There may be some confusion about my attendance. I have been in since 2009, but like others, I have fallen off the wagon and went missing. However, I just recently joined back up (1/23/13) and I am dead serious about it this time around! So if you are serious about achieving your weight goal; you are invited to ride along with me to accomplish it and if not; that is okay too! Again, I wish you the best! Now, enough reading; it is time for you to go accomplish your goals (Ooorah)!
