emoticonemoticonemoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticonemoticonemoticon
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!

HI Mtngal 17...
Welcome to Spark People.
This is a great support system made up of teams/boards that have great support and shared knowledge. People with common goals and interests.
There is a Getting Started Guide that will help you set up your own individual spark page which is the best place to start... from there you will be introduced to the many facilities that are offered through sparks.. their nutrition and fitness trackers and a lot of articles and videos that will help you get organized in working towards your goals.
Sparks is about making healthy life changes that will help you throughout your journey and then to help you maintain.
Good luck and all the best to you.

be authentically you...
it's journey, not a one day hike.

Hi everyone. I just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I am currently on WW and yes it is working but I am starting to get tired of the points system and all the steps to track my food. Decided to give calorie counting a try and Spark People came highly recommended.

Looking forward to meeting new people and making new friends.
