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 to SP!!!
Think positively and take it one meal, one workout and one day at a time. Make a plan and work your plan. Write it all out if you need to or use the trackers here. Try the meal plans and workout generator. Join a Spark Team. Start with small changes and add on. There is plenty of help, support and guidance on this site.
Hang in there. You will make it through. Wishing you the best!
“When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance.
The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will.”

i am new here. For the first I admit that I need help! I have been dragging 30 to 40 lbs for too long now. The side effects of my weight are now really bad!
Depression, insomnia. I dont know where to begin, I am afraid of sabotaging myself again. I dont have no support system, and no one to reach for help.
