Hello and welcome to the beginning of your journey to a healthier lifestyle.
SparkPeople really works, but the key is you and consistency. Find and join SparkTeams that fit your interests and needs (best place to talk to friends you have never met, and get all the support and motivation you will need). Stay active on your teams and post frequently. Track your food; drink at least 8 glasses of water a day (challenge yourself to work your way up to it if you are finding this difficult). Add different exercises to your day (start off slowly and increase the amount of exercise over time).
Take baby steps, and before you know it those baby steps become giant leaps. SparkPeople is free, but the rewards are priceless.
Welcome to SP! Great progress getting your page started! I am also a recent member (from Jan 12th) and have really enjoyed the support and encouragement very much. As I skimmed your page and your teams, I noticed we have a few things in common and I just wanted to stop by and offer you a buddy or just someone to vent to about anything. Stop by my page and let me know how you are doing. I know we can do this. Good Luck to us!! 3063 days ago
