Welcome :) Joining spark is a great first step everyone here is so supportive! I'd start with small goals switch out soda for water, walk to classes vs driving, have some healthy snacks on hand to bring throw in your bag vs eating junk, find a friend to be your gym buddy so you can motivate eachother ect. I do believe there is a college student spark team on here you should check it out I'm sure they'll have tons of tips to help you out! Good luck reaching your goals

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 *~

I'm very new to the fitness world and have no idea where or how to start! As a college student, I often find myself binge eating & slacking off in the gym. Anyone who can push me and work with me for motivation, please get in contact!
