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. 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! *~ Paula *~

I realized recently that even with all the negative things going on in my life, I was just using those as excuses to become unhealthy. The scale creeping up didnt make an impact...my knee and back hurting more...didn't make an impact. Finding SparkPeople, now this has made an impact. I am so happy that I have found this site! I have made a few baby steps the past couple of days. I think it will always be tough to eat healthy when I visit Reno. But I can make the best choices that I can and get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery and walk, walk, walk! I am traveling home tomorrow, 12-13 hours of travel time. I already bought carrots and celery with natural peanut butter for snacks. Yea me! I am looking forward getting home and cleaning out the junk food and do what I need to, to become healthy again! I also need to charge up my Fitbit and sync that up to SparkPeople.
