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. 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!

This place is great! You're doing the right thing by getting involved in posting. It gets you out of your head. People "here" are so great and we're all in it together. SparkPeople works if you work it. I'm excited for you!

My name is Kassi. I am 20 years old and I weigh 305 pounds. I just recently started noticing how much of an effect this weight has on my body. I don't want to let my weight hold me back anymore. I joined spark because I am looking for some major support.
