WELCOME TO SPARK!!! 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! *~ Paula *~

Wow, Stephanie! 25+ years in healthcare and I don't think I have ever heard of anyone your age being diagnosed with COPD. Here is a link to a team of 404 people with Asthma/COPD. Since they have the same medical issues that you do, they are better able to give you appropriate guidance with exercise. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individ ual.asp?gid=11014
You are in the right place to succeed in your journey to more healthful living with and for your children. Let me know if I can help you in any way.

Hi , my name is Stephanie. I am 30 yrs old and 2 yrs ago was diagnosed with COPD/Emphysema . Up until then Iv always been fit and active. Well after a stint on life support and in a coma, needless to say I have been VERY limited on just my every day activities. I am a single mother and over the last 2 years my weight gain has also been my childrens. I read and see the ways to eat better, the limited mobility exercises and so on, but this is a whole new way of life for me and it seems that I just cant GET IT..... I would love some feedback on maybe some things Im over looking or could be doing wrong. Thanks everyone!
