Hi Mary!

Welcome and congrats on taking the first step! I too feel like the site found me. I posted about how many tools and features the site offers to help you along your healthy journey!

For a "Facebook challenged" person, I must commend you for your courage in jumping right into the message board!

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!

My name is Mary. I am totally new to all of this. I have never joined any type of message board...I am even facebook challenged. I find the idea of tracking food a bit overwhelming, but I must start somewhere. Diagnosed type2 diabetic January 2012...I tried to ignore it for a year. It is time to get this weight off and get healthy!
