Kelly, I'm new here, too. I've been exercising for for about a year, but eating whatever I want. I have some excellent work out DVD's that are great! in home walking CD's, for example.

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 Everyone :) Fairly new member here. I have been dodging the exercise bullet for let's entire 37 years but can do it no longer. I am too far overweight to deny that I need help. I am 5'3" and my starting weight was 214 lbs. I have been logging into SP and logging my food, fitness and weight for 2 weeks as of today. So far I have managed to exercise every single day and keep within my calories 95% of the time :( I have lost 5 lbs. so far. Need all the encouragement I can get! :)
