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 *~

Congrats to you Jenny! I also just joined spark people, a few weeks now & has not lost as much as you (a little) but job well done! My weight fluctuates between 163-166 but my goal is to reach 150 & I'm 5'6". You mentioned about your metabolism slowing down; I would say you have to factor in how much you exercise so that is something to consider. Anyway, good luck with your weight loss plan!

I have been doing Spark People for 3 weeks now and loving every minute of it. I use to do ok on diets but only for a little while and then I end up putting the weight back on and then I would look for another diet and after a while nothing would work. Maybe its because my metabolism has slowed down. My average weight use to be 135 to 145, for along time now it has been 165 to 171. With spark people I have lost 9 lbs in 3 weeks . My goal is to lose down to 145 by April. My mom found Spark People and told me about it and I am so thankful that she did.
