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 *~

Hello everyone in the spark community. I just wanted to introduce myself. I am Ivy, I am a 25 year old developmental therapist, mother, fiance, and student. I am currently working on loosing 140 pounds before my wedding in June of 2015. I also want to set a healthy example for my daughter, I can already see her picking up some of my bad habits and she is only 2. I want to be healthy and to eventually have another baby, the doctors tell me that I will never have another baby with out total hip replacement if I do not lose weight before I get pregnant again.
