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 *~
I am recently recovered from gall bladder surgery, where I was given some eye-opening realities about my health. I want to be fit and healthy so that I can enjoy what's left of my youth. I was fat all through my 20s and basically spent them lazing about. NO MORE!!! I will eat right. I will exercise. I just know that I can turn this puppy around!
I've lost a portion of my weight before and then gained it back, which is frustrating, but it taught me that I have to be moderate in my food choices or I'll ultimately leave the diet and binge my weight back on. So this time: moderation is my watchword. And also: Hope.
I hope to be able to do things that I've only dreamed about. I have an adventurous spirit, but I haven't physically been able to cave dive, white water raft, or kayak. I can't wait to be fit enough to do those things! And I'm not alone!!
