woohoo! Welcome to SparkPeople -- and good luck with the 5k! I just ran/walked my first 5k this week and did another one today (at the gym on the treadmill, but that still counts in my book!)

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!

I am just starting my weight loss journey. I have tried many times before without success as I have a tendency to start things and not finish them, get off track easily, etc. My sisters and I have signed up for the Color Run 5K in July, so I will LITERALLY be going from couch to 5k:) I have a goal of 50 pounds to lose which is a bit overwhelming to think about, but I am turning 40 this week and feel like I need to make this change now.

I am open to any tips, ideas on maintaining motivation as well as how to start training for the 5k!

Looking forward to learning from you all,
