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!

Hi and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change! Get familiar with everything here, make a sparkpage and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. I have added a team to get you started but you should use the team search bar and type in things like your interests/hobbies and/or maybe some health problems/risks you may have, good luck on your journey.

Hi my name is Andi Jean, I am over 40 with a great husband and 2 awesome boys. I am once again starting a fitness program and a healthy lifestyle change. I have tried many diets and paid many dollars to achieve my goal of losing 50+ pounds. I am hoping to use sparkpeople to start new habits and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I currently am a member of a gym which I love because of all the great classes. I really want to develop a support system for success.
