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. 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!

The only way it will last is STAYING AT IT DAILY. When people go back to old eating habits, they regain the weight.

Welcome back! I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite SparkPeople articles with you. I hope it helps your situation.

"Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor."

"The fearless are merely fearless. People who act in spite of their fear are truly brave."

"All success stories have 1 thing in common -- they decided they were going to do something, and then they did, no matter what got in their way."

I'm not really new to this site but I've returned, and I've promised myself to lose the weight for good this time. I've been overweight since childhood and I've been able to lose the weight but put it back on again several times since I was a teenager. It's been a really big struggle and I'm still trying to find something that will last that's not just nutrition and exercise.
