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 Debbie,
welcome to Spark. You will find so much support and such great motivation here. I always like to read people's motivational stories. And I also found that once I made a Spark Page, people could find me and leave me little notes and encourage me directly on my page. Check it out. It is one of the Spark Steps you begin with.

Hugs and lots if success for you!

Hello to all. You know the story, lose 5 gain 4 lose 6 gain 7, well I've been playing that for a while now. I've lost appx. 30 pounds and am getting to content with my appearance. Rationalizing my way into getting out of control. Needless to say, it's time for some support and accountability. Thanks Sparkpeople.
