emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
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 so tired of carrying these extra 25 lbs.; this morning I weighed and my weight is up 5 pounds since Thanksgiving (on top of the 20 I had already gained in the past 11 years.) Enough already, my clothes are tight and I refuse to buy a larger size. I know being 65 it will be harder to lose the weight but I am relying on you wonderful Spark People to motivate me and to learn from all of you on your successes. My biggest problem is not exercising. I do a lot around the house and in the yard but it is not consistent to get my heart rate up.

I could tell when my daughter was here for Thanksgiving she kept asking me if I was feeling ok, (she was being sweet not to mention that my weight was really getting away from me.) I am flying out in March to visit her and I would love to surprise her with the new ME!

Looking forward to my transformation! Good luck to everyone!
