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!

Hello everyone! My name is Allee and I am 18. I saw that one of my favorite bloggers used Sparkpeople to kick start her weight loss so I though I would give it a try. I joined yesterday (3/10/14), and so far I really like the site. I joined because I would like to lose all the weight I gained in high school. When I started high school, I weighed 150 lbs, was a little chubby, and not very active. As I went through school, I be came more active in clubs and other activities like band, color guard, and dance. Even though I was active, I was gaining weight because I didn't watch my diet and only exercised during color guard and dance practices. By the time graduation hit, I was 180 lbs and uncomfortable with my body.
Fast-forward to today. I am still 180 lbs and uncomfortable with my body. I work at my dance studio now 3 nights a week and I dance 4 nights. I love to dance, it is one of my most favorite things to do, but sometimes it's hard because I have a lot extra weight on me. My goal is to get down to 135 (or close to that) so I can become a better dancer, and a role model for other students and my family.
