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. 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! *~ Paula *~

Welcome to SparkPeople!
I know it shows that I’m a newbie as well, but I’ve been a member of this site off and on for years… and it’s still the one and only ‘diet’ I truly trust and believe in.
The best advice I can give you is to utilize this site as much as possible. Read the articles, join a team, use the nutrition and exercise tracker, but most of all, interact with all the other amazing members on this site. If you have a question, ask… I know someone will have an answer and be more than happy to help you.
Best of luck on your journey!

Hello and Welcome! Unfortunately, as we get older, we have to work a little harder to stay in shape. That being said, SP is a great site with lots of tips and tools to help you reach your goals. Members are supportive and helpful. A good way to stay accountable and motivated is to be active on your Spark Teams. Plus, it's a good way to make new Spark Friends.
Best of luck to you. You can do it!

Work hard and get that body you want back again. My adult children do the P90X and P90X2 work outs with Tony Horton. They look great.

I am 34 years old, 5.1 feet tall & I weigh about 125 pounds. Trying to lose the extra 25 to go back down to my 100 lbs.that I have been all my life. Once I hit 30 years old I started gaining all the extra weight. & its not a good kind of weight either. Its the kind that started growing around my hips thighs and ass. Cellulite is what every woman hates and that is what I'm getting around those problem areas, which is the main reason that I cannot put on a bathing suit without having any self confidents in myself. before I was small petite and toned with a six pack & everything on my body I loved. Now I'm fatter and flabby. and my skin stretched out so far that I have stretch marks to go with my lovely cellulite... From this day on I have a goal and I am going to stay committed to it until I reach my goal.
