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!

Welcome Eva. =) The tracker has really helped and will hopefully put your calorie needs in perspective and keep you from burning out on the fad diets. You may be surprised how much you're allowed to eat even with the limitation!

Hi, my name is Eva and I'm 53 years old. I have been a skinny person all my life. Up until 7 years ago my weight was 118 lbs. but over time the pounds just started to creep up, slowly but surely!
Now I'm at 155 lbs. Just lost 3 lbs in the last 10 days. I am new to dieting but I think with the help of my food tracker I'll be able to do it. I always thought that eating a lot less is the way to go, but I never realized that it does not matter how much you eat rather than what you eat!
I used to be one of those people who could eat and drink anything without ever gaining weight until I was in my mid 40s.It has been a bit of a struggle. Once I went on the Atkins diet and lost 17 lbs but that weight, plus some, came back as soon as I started to add carbs back into my meals. Very frustrating! Hope that I will do better just counting calories.
