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!

Hi there. Thanks for the smiley face. It was cute. If you dont mind me asking....whats ur name? And this site so far? What do you think of this site so far? There is so much to learn I'm not sure where to start. LOL But at least I made it through the section that showed me what to buy at the grocery store. So I officially start the diet tomorrow. I sure hope I stay motivated!!!! What are your goals?

Melissa

Sorry for all the questions.

Hi everyone. My name is Melissa. I just signed up last night on this sight. I am a type 2 diabetic and weighed in at 302 lbs at the doctors office 2 weeks ago. After getting over the shock I decided its time to make a change. But I admit.......I need some support from other people who understand how hard this is and having diabetes makes it even tougher. So if anyone ever needs some support or has any questions please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hopefully helping others on this site as well as others helping me. Good luck to everyone and I hope to make some new friends!!!! :)
