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!

Hello :)

My name is Ashley and I'm new here, I'm 20 years old and I am wanting to make some changes in my life. I grew up with no positive influences for healthy eating and I'm wanting to changes this while I'm still young. I would like to lose weight, but I'm hoping to have that as a stepping stone in the right direction. I'm not going to lie, I hate to exercise, but I'm trying a lot of different things. I took a yoga class in school and now I am taking beginning jogging this fall, it's day two so far and yesterday I walk/jogged two miles and today I've biked two miles with plans to do more later. I guess I just need activities to keep me going and stay interested.
