emoticonemoticonemoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticonemoticonemoticon
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!

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 to you on it

Remember to participate as often as possible on all the groups you have joined - lots of encouragement there

I have been so inspired by what SparkPeople and SparkCoach offers. I once was in Weight Watchers and lost 53 pounds, but then when I hit goal, it all bottomed out and there wasn't any motivation left and Weigh Watchers dropped it's services, so to speak, charging me for eTools etc and not being allowed to weigh in weekly or having to pay if I went over goal - almost punishing one for being human, instead of motivating. I gained all my weight back, and have been wondering how to get the support I need - WW was the only method I'd ever succeeded on, because of the support. I was so inspired yesterday when hopping on SparkPeople and discovering SparkCoach and realizing this is EXACTLY what I have needed - daily accountability, daily input and inspiration, and daily coaching. I am thrilled, confident, inspired, and hope has been restored. Can't tell you what this means to me...

Slow and steady wins the race... so act like a turtle.
