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 *~

Welcome! What a wonderful reason to get healthy! I believe in baby steps... small, healthy changes every day that you can live with permanently. Habits developed slowly tend to stick!
You should make a Spark page so we can all get to know you, cheer you and lend support.
Check out my Spark page and send me a Spark mail if I can help in any way. This is a great site! You can do this!

Hey everybody. I'm new on here. I'm ready to begin a new start to my life by being healthy and losing some weight. I weigh 245 and it is really bring me down. I've always been big but i have never felt so bad in my life. I can't do the things i used to at all. I have a son who will be 2 in June and he's the reason I'm ready for this. He has Cerebral palsy and so I know I need to be his role model. He's needs someone to show him that nothing is impossible and that even this littlest things can make a big difference and in his case they are. He is my role model, he has come so far since he was born, so I know I need to give something in return. I would love to have people to talk to help motivate me (that's my biggest problem, I'm such a procrastinator). Well talk to ya'll later.
