***Just wanted to take a moment and welcome you to Sparkpeople. Joining Sparkpeople is on of the best decisions I have made and I know you will love it as well.

***Try joining a spark team. The support and motivation that comes with belonging to a team will help you stay on track. This can be found under “Community”.

***Make short term goals. They will help reaching your long term goals manageable. If you look under “My Trackers” click on “Other Goals” and you can set your short term and long term goals. Sparkpeople offers some for you to choose from or you can create your own.

***Try using the nutritional tracker. It really makes it easier to stay within your daily nutritional goals. This can be found under “My Trackers”.

***Read the many success stories to help you stay focused and motivated. This can be found under “Community”.

***Be patient. This is a journey not a marathon. If you need support during your journey please feel free to email me anytime. I am more than happy to be your spark friend during your journey.

***Check out Challenge Central. There are many challenges designed to keep you on track such as the Official 10-Minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, SparkPeople 8-Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge, Official 28-Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge, and many others that may interest you. This can be found under “Community”.

***Under the “Community” tab you’ll find Secrets of Success. There you will find tips from members to help make your journey easier.

***Do exercises that you enjoy. Working out can be fun.

***Please feel free add me as a friend, and I'll do the same.

You can do this. Believe in yourself. You are worth this journey.
In friendship and support,
Gwen
