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. 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!

Hello and emoticon !! My name is Angela and I have been on this site since June 2012. Congratulations on taking your first steps to a brand new you and a new weight loss experience where you are supported by en entire community of like-minded people. This website is dedicated to helping people who want a healthier lifestyle including issues with eating healthy and exercising, as well as support forums where we talk about specific issues.

I recommend reading through the Getting Started Guide at this link: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_started.as

Setting out with the mindset that you are starting a whole NEW lifestyle, while using some things learned in WW or other programs you might have seen, you can definitely do this. It's all about MODERATION!! Making allowances for the things we really want and adding in all the healthy things that we can around it. I call it "eating backwards". You know if you are going to eat the sugary stuff, so put that on your tracker and fill the rest of the day with healthy. It DOES work! I have lost 60 pounds, but have backslid this past month do to oral surgery that "forced" me to eat ice cream! (See what I mean, you can have "cheat" foods, you just have to make sure they aren't cheat DAYS or WEEKS!)

There is a team for everyone that joined the program the same week as you! To go there and join that team, go to SparkTeams and then select ‘SP Class’ and find your week. You will have a mentor running the team, so you will have some guidance and be amongst people starting the same week you did. Makes a good place to find a support buddy.

So welcome and enjoy! If you have questions, you can always reach out and send me a SparkMail, or stop by my SparkPage at the link below. We can do this together, with encouragement and support from others, and SparkPeople has really great resources for any kind of workout or condition!

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome, and Enjoy!
