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. 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!

Thanks! I will try yoga then too. Also...any advice on rotating work outs? Both work out DVDs do a lot of abs. It's okay to do abs every day though right? But not arms and legs?

Welcome, Angela!

It sounds like you're on the right track with pilates. I'd also recommend looking into yoga. It's a great way to tone your legs while strengthening your muscles which will help put less strain on your knees. Anyone here will tell you that you can't lose fat from just one part of your body. Toning is really the best way to get the look that you're after.

I have always been average weight but about a year ago (I am in college), i would put on a pound here or there. I am only 8 lbs from my goal weight, but I don't really care about the number. Everything I eat goes straight to my thighs! Any advice on work outs to do for this? I have bad knees and can't run. I also have an awful neck. I just started Pilates and Jillian Michaels NMTZ.
