    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!

    emoticon And emoticon to Spark People…you will find lots of information on sparkpeople as well as lots of support and encouragement from all our members.

    Things to remember that will help you reach your goal:

    Be sure to track your water you drink. You need to drink 8-8oz glasses of water a day – just one at a time throughout your day and you can reach this goal.

    Use your nutrition tracker daily: tracking your food at first will seem difficult but over time it will become second nature.

    Use your fitness tracker: Get active/exercise: just 10 minutes here and there adds up quickly. Park your car further from the store and walk. Take stairs rather than the elevator, etc.

    Remember this is one step at a time, one minute at a time, one day at a time and it all adds up. Don’t feel you need to start with 30-60 minutes in one sitting at first. It will come in time.

    Remember this is about changing your life style not dieting. So do it little at a time, in baby steps. Don’t expect miracles right away…again it is a life style change!!! And over time you will begin to notice the difference in how you feel, your energy level, and how you look.

    Post your questions and concerns: Don’t be afraid to ask question or seek out help. We are all on the same journey but at different levels of that journey.

    Setbacks can be and are a part of this journey: Don’t let them dictate your mood or progress. Let it go and keep moving forward. Keeping your focus on your goal and you will reach them in time.

    Celebrate: Celebrate all your accomplishments. (Set small goals for yourself so you have a way of seeing your progress) Do this through blogging, posting updates and rewarding yourself.

    What SparkPeople has done for me: I am a type 2 diabetic that is off all my medicine. (I was on 5 orals plus insulin now down to 1 oral which I go off of Feb 1, 2012). Let me tell you how God and SparkPeople have and are helping me: Wow, I have always been heavy and at my peak I was 345lbs. With God’s help and the tools on SparkPeople I have been able to lose 175lbs to date reaching my goal as of 2-2-12. I am now on a new journey of maintaining this weight. And I know with God’s help and SparkPeople tools you can do it too!! (I have always recognized that it’s God who has enabled me to be who I am and to accomplish all I have accomplished)

    God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
