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 *~

Welcome! I was giving up on ever losing weight. I was just hungry all the time. Now with Spark, I am losing weight and sticking with a healthy eating plan.
The journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
Let go and let God.

Nice to meet you and welcome to SparkPeople.
This is the right place to be. Lots of useful and relevant resources in nutrition, weight management, and fitness, and lots of helpful and supportive folks.
Some further suggestions which you may already be doing:
* Fill in the requested details on your SparkPage. * Start blogging. Start wherever you want to. Try to do it daily; it gets you involved; and gets others involved with you. Who, what where and why? Successes? Snags? Goals? * Try the message Board and look at the SparkTeams based on your interest. * The SparkPoints item in the MyTrackers, "pop down menu" also gives lots of hints.
