emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you havenít, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. We are here to keep everyone motivated.
Iíve found that the best source of motivation on spark is posting, asking questions, and finding new friends that are in this together. We are all on this journey of a healthy live style, so your not alone in this. People need someone to believe in them. They need to know that if they take that first step out of their comfort zone, someone will be supporting them all the way. With small words of encouragement, with just a little extra time, that someone could be you. In some cases, others may just be unaware of their true abilities and potential.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!
Sheila

Hi and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change! Get familiar with everything and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. Try using the team search bar and type things like your interests/hobbies or try the first number of your age followed by a 0 and the word something, Example- "30 something". I am adding a couple of links here that you might find helpful and you should check out the recipes. Good luck on your journey

Hi everyone, i signed up for this account a year ago and i'm now just logging on to start my journey. I'm really struggling on getting started with exercise and eating right. My family and I just signed up for a gym membership two weeks ago and i've only gone once and then to top that off i'm having a hard time staying on track with eating right cause i love junk food and fast food.
I could really use some great beginners suggestions if anyone has any? I look forward to coming there and hearing about everyone's journey and finding my motivation.
