    Welcome to Spark! emoticon

    You will love this site for all of the wonderful information that is out there. Just give it some time to become familiar to you and explore as often as you can! There are wonderful recipes, and running groups and you can interact with other people that have the same goals as you.

    I live in Maryland also!!! Have fun on your journey and feel free to reach out to others if you have questions!

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

    You have accomplished so much! Give yourself credit and then just start the next leg of your journey. It doesn't matter where you have been for the last year, what matter is where you are today. Having the courage to start is the most important and if you are looking for motivation, information and inspiration you have come to the right place! Spark people has been such an important part of my journey.
    I just started running six months ago. I'm slow and sometimes I get worried that I won't be able to reach my next goal (longer race, etc...) or I worry that I will wake up one day and realize that the weight I have lost has all come back. I have to continually fight a bit of anxiety and I have learned to use this as fuel for my motivation. Find your positive fuel, believe in your self and don't give up! You can do this!! emoticon emoticon
