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!

Hi Jess, and welcome back to Spark People!!! Spark can give you all of the tools, but you have to be dedicated enough to your goals to keep trying. You want your degree so you keep trying at school, the same applies to reaching your health goals. emoticon

Alright I've been on and off with SP for a year now, and I finally figured that starting in the community may help me better my chances of sticking around. To start off, my name is Jess and I'm currently a student going for my degree in Cardiac Sonography. My goal by the end of this is to feel great. That is all I want. It's about being the best I can be and having a healthy heart. After all, that's what my field of study is based on. It wouldn't hurt to meet some friends along the way though emoticon
