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. 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! *~ Paula *~

Hi everyone. My name is Sarah. Im a wife and mother of a 5 year old boy and a 9 year old girl. Ive recently stopped working and am now stay at home mommy. Ive been trying to lose weight since my daughter was born (well, trying some of the time). And have decided that now is the time, as I have pretty much run out of excuses for myself. My main goal is now at 32, I know its just going to get harder and harder to lose weight, and I want to be healthy and look good :) As my husband it always supportive and says I'm just fine the way I am, and dont have many friends, being consumed for so many years working and being mommy and wife, I have a hard time holding myself accountable if Im just being honest. So though a community forum to log my actions, and be somewhat accountable might be the trick for me :)
