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 *~

Here is your Getting Started Guide: http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_s tarted.asp
These New Member Tutorial Videos are very helpful: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motiva tion_articles.asp?id=571
I try to encourage new members to get active in the SparkPeople community! Join a Spark Team or two that match your interests. You will find it easy to get acquainted with folks on Spark Teams. For instance, you can select a Team of Sparkers in your city, or Sparkers who follow a particular food plan (vegetarians, low carb, etc.), Sparkers with a particular health concern, or Sparkers who share your hobbies. Another option is to set up your SparkPage and start blogging. Some folks use the Community Journals. Post a lot on the message boards, especially if you have successes or challenges. You'll soon find that you're connecting with many nice folks here.
This is a great, positive community! Iím glad youíre with us.

hello I am new to the site here. let me share a little about me and why I am here.I am very obese earlier this year my doc told me that I was pre diabetic. I somehow got my A1C out of the danger zone because I lost a few pounds. but unfortunately I gained it all back and then some. I seriously took a reality check and looked in the mirror and I did not like what I saw. I was always overweight or obese. Now I am telling myself I have got to do something because it is affecting my health. Sleep Apnea, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, high triglycerides, joint pains caused by arthritis. I have other health problems too not related to my weight issues which I am taking a lot of medications for which is a downer for me.
