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 you are here! YOU are soooooo worth the effort! Take the time to look around, learn the tools, find teams that interest you and take good care of yourself. All that is here will become routine in no time.
Hi and welcome,. So glad you are here! Get familiar with everything here and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. I am adding a couple of links to teams to get you started but you should use the team search bar and type in things like your hobbies/interests or put in the first number of your age followed by a 0 and something. Example - "30 something", good luck on your journey

I'm new to sparkpeople! I had been on another program and lost 103lbs. 3+ yrs. ago and gained it almost all back. I'm tired of yo yo dieting and want to get serious about my own wellbeing and body and get healthy. A healthier lifestyle is important to me, I get side-lined at times, but I am determined not to give up! I need to lose over 100+ lbs. and know that I must take one day at a time, I just want to stay motivated, use my gym membership, keep track of my glucose level (type2 diabetes) and continue to be inspired by sparkpeople's website and all that it has to offer. I welcome any tips and encouragement from others!
