Welcome to Spark People! Wanting to LIVE is surely an excellent motivation to start! Don't try to do it all at once. Read all the articles they offer you at the start and get a grasp on the Spark approach - gradual change, moving slowly toward a healthy lifestyle, making wiser choices incrementally until you have adjusted to a really good balance for you. Use the trackers, read articles daily, take part in a Challenge, join a Team or two and participate in the Community process. Get your Page set up, blog about your journey. Read and reply to other members' posts and blogs with encouragement and support cuz that will more than likely help you as much as it helps them! Get your Spark ON!
