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. 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.

2. 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!

Hi everyone! I used to be a 230 lb couch potato and am now a much fitter 150 lb runner. Was looking for a recipe on Google and it led me to SparkPeople. I'd heard about it before but never joined. So I decided to make the leap and join and take advantage of the great things going on here!

Formerly 230 lbs, now 90 lbs lighter. Runner, sub-27 5K finisher, sub-58 10K finisher, sub-95 15K finisher, half marathon finisher, survival and success story.

5K PR: 26:23.5
10K PR: 57:43
15K PR: 1:34:25
Half Marathon PR: 2:42:34
