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 *~

Hi, I'm Rosie 33 from IL. I have been over weight most of my life. About 7 or 8 years ago I started having problems with my feet both from my weight and that I have worked on my feet on concrete floors for the past 17 years. I went through all the processes to fix the feet including surgery 2 years ago and that pretty much fixed that issue. Off and on for the last 2 years I have now been experiencing lower back and hip problems. I am way to young and have many more years to work, probably on the same concrete floors, to be in the pain that I am in. My brother told me about SP a while ago and for a short time I tracked my food and exercise but did not follow through. I am now ready for a lifestyle change and am looking forward to my new healthy lifestyle. Motivation or Lack there of is a problem for me so I really hope that I can find some here.
