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 *~

Hi, I'm new to posting and reaching out to others for support. I am the glue to my family if you know what I mean. It's me usually supporting others and lately I have taken a longer look in the mirror to realize I am not happy with what I'm seeing. I have always been bigger but I'm now at this weight that is really taking a toll on me in so many ways. So today I woke up and decided to devote everyday to making changes towards a healthier, happier me. I know I have a lot to lose but I'm trying to stay realistic about the time it takes to lose weight. I always quit a diet or health plan because I feel like it takes so long to see results. I have to be strong willed because I'm not going to lie I Love Food! So I need to adjust the things I love and start exercise again.
