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 *~

There are plenty of positive people here at Spark!
I would suggest that you consider making a SparkPage. I get lots of support through my SparkPage and interacting with my SparkFriends on their pages. I get more support there than I have ever gotten anywhere else.
Best wishes to you!

Today is my first day posting. I am trying to find other people like me who have a lot of weight to lose and who can help me stay motivated. I have tried a lot of different diets and have done good for a couple of days and then I go back to eating like crazy and gain back the 2-3 pounds that I lost. I'm looking for members who are positive and encouraging if you are one of these people please write back!!!!
