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 *~

I there :) I'm Sydonna, you can call me Syd if you'd like. I have actually visited the site and had an account for a few years but never actually got around to *using* it o.0 But I am now :D I'm 28, married and have three awesome kiddos. I'm looking to lose 10 lbs I recently put on and get healthier/toned/stronger. I have a penchant for junk food and have never really had the ability or stamina to do the things I want to do as frequently as I want to do them. I'd love to run a 5k and even a 10k at some point... Currently doing the Insanity program and it's kicking my butt. Anywhooo, that's me. It's great to meet ya'll :D
