Hey there!!! I am fairly new to SP but have been working out/eating right since July. I've currently lost 23 lbs and have been keeping it off!!! It wasn't easy believe me. And all of us fall off the wagon and get back on. I have found one of the best ways to control my calorie intake is with a meal replacement shake. I have it for breakfast which motivates me to keep treating myself well for the rest of the day. If you have any questions about ANYTHING please feel free to send me a message. you can also look me up on fb. firstname.lastname@example.org I like to post about yummy healthy meals that I love as well as different stuff about fitness and my specific routines. I find it easier to stay on track when I'm in constant contact with like minded people. Good Luck!! You've got this!!

WELCOME BACK TO SPARK!!! 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. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. 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.
3. 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! *~ Paula *~

Hello. This is my second time on Sparkpeople. I have successfully lost weight with the help of this website before, yet I am lacking self motivation this time around.
