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 there, I'm currently 258.4 pounds! I'm only 5,2 and my goal weight is 120! I'm 20 years old.
I believe I will look best at 120, I wouldn't know until I will get there but this journey will be long! The spark predicts I will be at my goal weight around july 2014.
I would love to motivate and be motivated by others trying to loose a serious amount of weight.
I'm new to this site, it seems like it has very helpful tools, I'll know more once I explore more
I'm a very nice friendly person so don't be shy. :)
