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. 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! *~ Paula *~

Hello Everyone! I want to introduce myself - I got engaged on Thanksgiving day of 2012 and we are getting married on 3/13/14. I'd like to lose at least 60 lbs before then, but I am just finding it hard to stay motivated! I'm hoping that by joining this website, I can make some friends who can help me stay on track.
Long term, I really want to lose weight and get healthy. I'm 31 and have struggled with my weight my entire life. My fiancÚ and I want to have a family some day, and I want to make sure I am healthy enough to keep up with the little ones!
