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!

Hi Marquetta
I can hear your frustration . You have come to the right place . I bet a large number of folks who joined Sparks did it for the same reason you did. I know I did. We all want to change our lives for the better. Joining and telling your story are good first steps. And all that you need to make the changes that you want can be found on You say that you are a Christian. Well faith can move mountains I hear . I am sure that the same faith can help you reach your goals too.
Good luck Marquetta.
Keep in touch.

My name is Marquetta. I have joined Sparkpeople because I am tired of not being happy with myself because of my
weight. I've struggled for year always losing and gaining it all back and then some. I am currently the heaviest I've ever been. My goal is to finally reach my goal weight and maintain it.
I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, writing poetry, and I am a Christian.
