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 and Welcome to Sparkpeople!!! So excited that you're here! The good news is you're in the right place, the bad news is you can't spot reduce your stomach area. Everyone has muscle under their fat and the only way to get rid of that fat layer is to eat cleaner and healthier and weight train to help you burn more fat. :) So...as someone has already said, there are some great videos on here and tracking your food will help you! The more food you eat that is clean and not in a package or container, the better for your tummy shrinking :) Please holler if you need anything! Enjoy your journey!!!
Happiness is a choice! Live with Passion!
