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 *~

We can encourage you, but the motivation must come from within. Obviously, you have motivation, or you wouldn't be here.
I encourage you to start your Sparkpage and a blog. Make your first blog about why you want to lose weight. Who around you will help you? Who might sabotage your efforts? What is your plan?
Let me know how I can help. Just click on my picture or where it says "Sparkpage" under my name.
Hang in there.

Today is my 1st day. I so want to lose some weight...I have tried several diets, etc., but my problem is no motivation or encouragement. I hope this site will help me to stay focused. My goal is to lose 30-35 lbs.
