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 husband and I are moving to Sebring, FL. I love swimming and we have a pool so I am hoping it will help get me going.
I am 60 years old and have lost my zeal. I can't seem to get going. It seems the older we get, the harder it is to lose weight. When I exercise, I hurt all over. I have one artery blocked 50%, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. My dad had his first heart attack when he was 31, had bypass surgery, then open heart surgery. Died at 63. You would sure think this would give me the incentive to exercise more and eat less. I just can't seem to get the motivation.
I love sweets...... Do I need to say more? I love to bake.......
I've been keeping track of my meals and exercise in my trackers. It is easy and very helpful. I put in the food I want to eat, then go back and change my menu. It really helps me to make wiser choices. I hope I can stick with this. I always seem to give up.
