WELCOME! Nice to have you with us! I love my Sparkworld, and so will you!
The best place to find a Sparkfriend for support and to share your journey, is on a Sparkteam. Top of your page, the orange column, go to Community. Click on Sparkteams. You can type an interest in or just browse through the many teams until you find one that gets your interest.
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!
First of all, think about editing your Sparkpage to change your private setting to public on your Sparkpage. Great place to send you encouragement, support and Sparkgoodies! It is also the place you can keep us updated on 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:
(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!
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!
LORD, turn my setbacks into comebacks!
Leave the rest to God.
