WELCOME 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. 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! *~ Paula *~

I'm also 57 so we have something in common! I have been a member of SP now for over 4 years and have found this website to be absolutely awesome. I log in every day for a dose of motivation and support and make it a priority. I recommend that you spend time every day reading articles and browsing spark pages. Start making small changes in your nutrition and fitness and only make changes that you feel you can live with for a lifetime. Eventually you will be living the life you envision for yourself! All the best on your journey to health and fitness.
