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 *~

Hi. My name is Debbie and this is my first time here. Would like to connect with others, become friends, share ideas and welcome all advice. My goal is to lose an extra 39 to 40 pounds. Since being diagnosed with T2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, I've finally started to take better care of myself. I've lost 80 lbs. since last March, due to daily walking, exercising, measuring portions and making better food choices. I enjoy meeting new people, helping others, and am a great listener. Please welcome me.
