There are lots of us in the 300+ club on our way to goal, including myself. I'm down 30 since Nov 2013. Feel free to add me as a Sparkfriend once you get your Spark Page started.

Check out the Getting Started Guide. You will find it under the quick links section to the right of your screen here.

Onward & Downward!!

There are so many on the boards facing the same challenges. Buddy up with this gal: ~INDYGIRL. She's really involved and I'm sure can help.

You need to join teams. There are 14 teams for PCOS and 52 teams for diabetes. Here's a link for one team you might check out:

Go the the SparkTeams home page and "browse teams."

Stay involved and remember that you are not defined by your past, you are prepared by it.

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 all. I am glad to be a part of this community. I am excited to start this journey. I have type 2 diabetes and PCOS. I am looking for support. It's easier to lose when you have an ally.
