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 *~

I see you have made up a sparkpage - you made it private not allowing any of us come to it to post a message - consider changing it to public allowing comments
Don't forget to participate on all the groups you have joined as often as possible - lots of encouragement whenyou do so
If I can help please ask

Changing my lifestyle is a challenge
Unless the Lord had given me help I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, 'My foot is slipping' your love O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me your consulation brought joy to my soul (Psalm 94:17-19)
Hello everyone, This is my very first time to post- though you might found out that my 'account' dates all the way back to the end of 06! I am looking for motivation and support as I finally tackle losing my extra 15-20 lbs. and get in shape. I actually signed up back during Christmas break 2006, when my first born was only 6 months old! He is now 6 years old and we have added two more girls. My youngest is 15 mo. old and I am still waiting to fit back into my pre-pregnancy clothes. We eat mostly gluten free for our son's sake but have found it has helped most of us digestion wise and we really want to eat more grain free and follow more of a paleo/primal diet.
