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 new to SparkPeople. I've been checking out different areas of the site seeing how to make it "fit" for me. I'm 55 yrs old and have been diabetic for 27 years. I'm under control with insulin injections but want to become healthier by being able to eventually decreasing or eliminating due to healthier lifestyle. It would really encourage me to hear about or from other "older" members who have or are finding success in changing their eating lifestyle. I need ideas for exercise that doesn't involve getting down on the floor because I have severe arthritis in my toes. I'd like abdominal exercises, too. I decided that so what if it takes me a year to lose 120 lbs I'll be a healthier year older!! If I can overcome "me" I will have jumped a big hurdle! It starts with one pound and one healthy thought at a time...
