I used to be a care giver for my mother but she passed away on December 8th 2013. I am now trying to rebuild my life and that is very difficult.

WELCOME! Nice to have you with us! I love my Sparkworld, and so will you!

I know exactly what you are going through being a caregiver. Did it for my father years ago, right now, we are doing it for my mom and for my father in law. It can be overwhelming, extremely stressful. Most important thing you can do, take care of YOU in the process. Joining SP shows you are in the process of becoming a healthier you! YOU CAN DO IT!!

Here are tips I put together to share with each new Sparkperson I meet. I hope it will be a help to you as you work toward reaching your goals!

The site can be overwhelming, take your time. Learn one topic at a time, when you get comfortable with it, move on to another area of the site. Soon you will be using all the tools SP has to offer, and loving it!

If you get stuck, and have a technical question about the site, here is a link to the Customer Support Team that is eager to help you:

http://www.sparkpeople.com/community/hel
p_support.asp
(only technical questions, if you have a nutrition, fitness, or health question, post the question in the Forums, other Spark members will eagerly try to help you!

Use your Spark Points (click on view SparkPoints) as a map to the site. It is a good way to learn your way around and you can earn points to send yourself or others Sparkgoodies.

Go back to your Start Page if you get lost, you can get almost anywhere from there.

Be sure to use the nutrition tracker. You can ensure you are getting the proper nutrients as well as tracking your caloric intake and this is so important to any weight loss journey.
Never "diet" again! Keep focusing on living a healthier lifestyle!

Read the book, THE SPARK for guidance, motivation and inspiration!

Check out SPARKCOACH.com for extra support, motivation, and inspiration. I joined it, and LOVING IT! Great way to stay accountable!

Log on everyday to stay focused!

NEVER QUIT!! NEVER GIVE UP!
THINK POSITIVE! If you have a bad day, let it go.
Wake up to a new day, fresh start!

One of my favorite SP quotes (from BobbyD31)
"Remember we all have Setbacks:
ACCEPT it, HANDLE it, and MOVE ON!

Remember, this is a LIFETIME JOURNEY!!

The online community on the site is wonderful! We are all here to offer support when you need it, and celebrate your successes with you. Any type of interest you have, there will be a Sparkteam for it!

Stop by my Sparkpage anytime and let me know how you are doing! I would love to hear from you!

Enjoy your journey to a healthier you!

Have FUN along the way!

You may want to look for a SparkTeam for caregivers - it's so difficult to deal with situations such as dementia/Alzheimer's and the like (have seen it in my own extended family), so every little bit of morale support can make all the difference! There are teams for so many groups and situations, so I wouldn't be surprised if there is a team or two for caregivers like yourself!
