WELCOME TO SPARK!!! 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. 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.
2. 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! *~ Paula *~

Hello everyone, I'm new here and it was my lovely sister Sarah (Scohanator) that convinced me to join. I've never quite been happy with my body. Of course that means dresses are always a little tight across my upper arms, a lot of my pants assume the cameltoe or muffintop position, and I've never been able to wear high heels without looking like a cloven-hoofed animal. More importantly I've never been fit enough to excel at the active hobbies I enjoy. Unfortunately for me I was convinced that diets were LAME and exercise was HARD. Getting a bike recently has taught me that exercise is easy, and this website shows me that eating healthy is fun. What a paradigm shift! This is such a loving, supportive community I can't wait to really get elbows deep in this process. xoxo Ellen
