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!

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.

Hi Everyone!
I'm obviously new to Spark People and I'm really excited to be here.
A bit about me:
Since November, my stress level and subsequently, my weight, has gone up exponentially.
In November, I quit my job to become a SAHM. My DH took a job in NC (which isn't quite what we anticipated), and left my son and I in Ohio. It has been really hard, my hubs, who was a SAHD for 4 years, and I was breadwinner, our lives have been flipped. I'm now home full time with our 4 year old son. Our financial situation is a little harder and certainly, long distance has added extra stress.
I have packed on the pounds, and am now 16lbs heavier than when I was 9 months pregnant. I find I don't have a lot of motivation, and I don't really have a strong support system. I'm hoping to meet some great people on here and we can motivate each other. If anyone is interested, let me know. I'm really excited to create that support system that I need to reach my goal!
