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 *~

So glad to see you have joined SP. I started over 350 pounds and am down about 110 pounds now. I have had bi-lateral TKR, have sleep apnea on bi-pap, etc. I have done this bit by bit and you can too! Read some of my blogs - I have been sharing very openly about my journey.

hello not sure what to say on my first post. let me just tell you a little about me. I am 40, pre diabetic, I have sleep apnea I weigh about 335 and because of my weight problem I have lower back/knee problems. I honestly want to change my lifestyle habits and lose my excess weight and feel pretty again. I need some inner motivation within myself. Hoping to find a weight loss buddy or a few friends on this site.
