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, just joined this site and it is all new to me, but I am very excited.
I have put on about 5kg fairly quickly (in the last 4 months) after having a Mirena IUD put in in July 2012.
I lost 5kg on Weight Watchers 3 years ago, put a little back on, then whammy!! Today I am the heaviest I have even been at 78.5kg (sorry, I'm an Aussie so we deal in kgs, not pounds emoticon ). I just want to get back to a decent 68-69kg.
I honestly don't know what I've done wrong over the past 4 months to get this weight on, except not exercised quite as much- but it has been a hot summer here!!
I just hope that by recording all I eat and exercise, I can work out where I've gone wrong and never do it again!!!
