Warmest welcomes to Spark People. Listen if you need an accountability partner let me know. My heaviest I was 301 & I'm now down 245. It was hard & still is. I have a support page on Facebook (link below) if you ever need some daily inspiration, recipes or if you'd like to add some input on what helps you. Stay committed in this journey!!!
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. 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! *~ Paula *~

So sorry to hear about your mom. The stress definitely takes toll on our eating habits, but our kids are great incentives to succeed. Let me know how I can help.

Hello to everyone out there. I am a 37 year old wife & mommy of 2 amazing boys. A 3 yr old and a 1.5 yr old. I used to be very athletic and pretty healthy. After 2 babies, I haven't the time to be as active as I like and recently my mom was diagnosed with incurable metastatic cancer. My personal stress & work related stress have assisted me in adopting some very bad eating habits. I am trying to feel better in my own skin and make healthier life choices so I can be around to see my children grow up. I appreciate any support out there from anyone who is and has struggled to make these better choices.
