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 *~

I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come! * Diet is a dirty word. Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate!

I'm a 27 yr old mom of a crazy active 3 yr old boy, and I have decided to get in shape to keep up with him. I started my weight loss journey about 2 weeks ago. So far I have lost 7lbs. I have been doing walk away the pounds and some weights, cut out soda and sugary drinks, watching my calorie intake and I just recently got an elliptical (I will update on results). I really need some support because when I ask my other half if he has noticed he always says "Well hun I see you every day, but if your losing pounds keep it up" Not really motivating huh? My 3 1/2 yr old gives me support when I'm doing my exercises, he will get down on the floor with me and ask me when I'm doing them. I hope everyone who has started working to be a healthier person is doing great and keep it up. I know it takes a little while before you see results so lets keep each other motivated so we can keep on keepin on. :-)
