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!

I'm a morning workout person myself and I find the same thing. The desire to eat is decreased when you busted your butt first thing in the morning!

Good luck here and be sure to ask whenever you have questions.

I am actually in the middle of week two, here at Spark People. There is just so much to look at! I am a former homeschool mom (10 years) who sent her sons to school three years ago. I sat down for the first time in 15 years and started eating. I gained 30 pounds. I am working on C25K, hoping to run a 5K in October with one of my sons and my bff since 7th grade in honor of LtCl Roy Tisdale, who was shot and killed by one of his troops a year ago. I am also working on the 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge. I find that after working so hard in the mornings, I don't want to eat crap all day. I lost two pounds last week, but it seems to have crept back on. That's ok, I'm moving forward.
