emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
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!

Step by step, day by day. Sometimes it's just a matter of having patience with your self. On your start page, log in your weight, then Use the calorie counter and log what you eat normally. Now don't restrict yourself yet. Take a look at what you the calories you are eating to the calories you should be eating. The same with the fitness tractor. Don't feel bad we all do it. I'm so disable that I throw a party if I lose 2 pounds, then, of course, I gain it back! I found patience is the key to losing the weight and keeping the weight off. You have to have the patience in yourself.

I have a thyroid condition that was diagnosed in 2010. Since then, I've put on over 50 lbs and can't seem to lose it regardless of which diet I try. I was on Weight Watchers for 3 months and didn't succeed in losing anything. Now I'm trying SparkPeople.
