emoticonWelcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you havenít, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. We are here to keep everyone motivated.
Iíve found that the best source of motivation on spark is posting, asking questions, and finding new friends that are in this together. We are all on this journey of a healthy live style, so your not alone in this. People need someone to believe in them. They need to know that if they take that first step out of their comfort zone, someone will be supporting them all the way. With small words of encouragement, with just a little extra time, that someone could be you. In some cases, others may just be unaware of their true abilities and potential.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!
Sheila

Here is your Getting Started Guide:
http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/get_started.asp

These New Member Tutorial Videos are very helpful: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_articles.asp?id=571

The SparkDiet Overview explains how the nutrition program here works:

I try to encourage new members to get active in the SparkPeople community! Join a Spark Team or two that match your interests. You will find it easy to get acquainted with folks on Spark Teams. For instance, you can select a Team of Sparkers in your city, or Sparkers who follow a particular food plan (vegetarians, low carb, etc.), Sparkers with a particular health concern, or Sparkers who share your hobbies. Another option is to set up your SparkPage and start blogging. Some folks use the Community Journals. Post a lot on the message boards, especially if you have successes or challenges. You'll soon find that you're connecting with many nice folks here.

This is a great, positive community! Iím glad youíre with us.

Welcome to sparks so glad you have joined us

Take a few minutes to make up a sparkpage making it public and allowing members to post a message on it to you

Also dont forget to participate as often as possible on all the groups you have joined - lots of encouragement / motivation there

If I can be of any help please let meknow

Changing my lifestyle is a challenge


Unless the Lord had given me help I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, 'My foot is slipping' your love O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me your consulation brought joy to my soul (Psalm 94:17-19)

Hello. I'm trying this site out to help me get back to being me. I had my thyroid out July 1st, 2011. I've gained fifty pounds, an onto another doctor, had heart palpitations, have been on various meds. I am getting some energy back, so I can actually do something about this weight gain. I just want to be a good mom, and get back into the clothes I was wearing pre thyroidectomy.
