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!

Sarah, emoticon No young woman should waste the best years of her life being fat. Stay with this and DO IT FOR YOU. I follow a woman on YouTube who had the Gastric Sleeve Surgery & she'd dropped 70# in 3 months, but doing that is the easy way out, since she can't eat more than about 400 calories per day or she gets really sick. But, she says she now realizes and admits that she ate ALL THE TIME and she ate when she wasn't hungry and she ate when she knew she'd had enought but just kept eatting especially when out with her friends.
Think about all of this and see if u do that. Log what you eat as it is a great start. I found when I started that I was drinking 1500 calories each day in juice, soda and milk. i stopped that.

Hello, my name is Sarah. I am 33 years old, 5'1", and 245 lb. I am hoping to lose 50 lb. by next summer. I like this site so far and I hope it helps me loose some weight. Here's to trying something new!
