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 *~

I am returning to SparkPeople for the third time after utilizing it briefly a couples of times in the last 2-3 years. First of all, I think it is an INCREDIBLE yet underutilized resource and am very grateful for it. This time, however, I am really ready for change. I am about 25lbs. over my goal weight and really desire to get back into shape and make some true lifestyle changes when it comes to eating healthy. My wake up call came after losing my father (in his early 50s) to a sudden heart attack two years ago. I'm not just interested in losing weight quickly, but in making changes that I can sustain to live healthier. I wouldn't mind my clothes fitting better and dropping some pounds either of course! I work a very high demand job that requires a lot of energy and stamina, so I am also hoping that I can begin to feel an increase in energy as well. So...here's to the start of TRUE CHANGE! Sending positive energy out to everyone else on their journey as well.
