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!

What is nice about spark people is the teams....
Especially if you decide to make a spark page this and the teams are how we communicate with each other. I belong to spark teams from my geographical area and teams that have similar interests

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal

I started on SP a little more than a month ago. I had a good idea about what I needed to do but didn't realize until now that it's gonna be more beneficial to me if I have some supporters and friends from the SP community to look to for motivation and support.

I lost 45lbs a year ago and since then I gained most of it back not realizing the importance of maintenance and keeping the lifestyle changes not just some short term changes. I became unhappy again and I took for granted all the hard work I put in.
