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. 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!

COOKIE7545, sounds like you are on the right road to a healthier you. I've been on that roller coaster weight loss road myself for years - lose 10 pounds just to gain it back plus more. This year I stopped wishing to lose weight I started doing something about it. You can reach your goals and starting slow with your food changes will help. It is the small changes that can add up over time to give you the success you want.


Your SparkFriend,

I have been on this roller-coaster ride for many years now. I would get motivated to lose weight and I might lose about 10 lbs but that's it. I end up going back to my normal weight. You see I call my weight normal. No it's not normal because I feel uncomfortable all the time. I am here to change my life not to on anymore diets or quick weight lose gimmicks. I really don't believe in surgery so here I go again. I am more motivated than ever before. I am working out at work almost everyday not. I am gradually changing what I consume. I am looking to be on the road to a healthier lifestyle within the next 6 months starting today. I hope I become an inspiration for my family. I want them to see what this change has done for me.
