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!

I'm with you on that one! This time I hope to stay on the low end of the 'yo'. I am here for you if you ever need encouragement.

I am new to the site. I used to be in excellent shape but over the past seven years or so, I have really let myself go. I have dieted and exercised on and off, but could not seem to stay consistent. I'd lose a few pound and then gain them all back, sometimes even a few extra. I have stopped buying fast food and junk food, so I am ready to start eating healthy. I have also dusted of my workout DVDs and plugged up the treadmill. I am hoping this site will give me the motivation and accountability I need to stick with it.
