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. 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 *~

Welcome to SparkPeople!! I'm a mother of soon to be 5!! When I was pregnant with the twins I had really developed a lot of bad habits that I let get out of control after they were born (like you can't eat much so you have to eat often, but after they were born I eat more but just as often as before which made the lbs come on very quickly). This baby I just found out in Oct that she was coming (at 14 weeks!!), I'm due in 3 weeks but this time I have a plan for after baby and I've been behaving throughout this pregnancy and have only gained 13 lbs so far!!
If you're looking for someone to lose the weight with that's also a busy mom - I'll buddy up with you. I log in quite often (at least once a day).
