Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've been on SP for just shy of six months now and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all. From recent experiences I can absolutely say that there is no mountain too high to get over, no hole too deep to get out of. And cliches aside, you are truly capable of anything!

***Just wanted to take a moment and welcome you to Sparkpeople. Joining Sparkpeople is on of the best decisions I have made and I know you will love it as well.

***Try joining a spark team. The support and motivation that comes with belonging to a team will help you stay on track. This can be found under “Community”.

***Make short term goals. They will help reaching your long term goals manageable. If you look under “My Trackers” click on “Other Goals” and you can set your short term and long term goals. Sparkpeople offers some for you to choose from or you can create your own.

***Try using the nutritional tracker. It really makes it easier to stay within your daily nutritional goals. This can be found under “My Trackers”.

***Read the many success stories to help you stay focused and motivated. This can be found under “Community”.

***Be patient. This is a journey not a marathon. If you need support during your journey please feel free to email me anytime. I am more than happy to be your spark friend during your journey.

***Check out Challenge Central. There are many challenges designed to keep you on track such as the Official 10-Minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, SparkPeople 8-Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge, Official 28-Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge, and many others that may interest you. This can be found under “Community”.

***Under the “Community” tab you’ll find Secrets of Success. There you will find tips from members to help make your journey easier.

***Do exercises that you enjoy. Working out can be fun.

***Please feel free add me as a friend, and I'll do the same.

You can do this. Believe in yourself. You are worth this journey.
In friendship and support,
Gwen

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!
