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!

Hello Fellow Spark People :)

My name is Amber I'm 31 years old, and a full-time college student who is roughly 60 lbs over weight for a women like me who is 4'9 it's not a pleasant look.

Starting tomorrow morning I plan on taking my weight loss very seriously.

I tend to sleep until 930-10am I'm up all hours of the night, I'm not getting 8 hours of sleep but this too is a goal I need to change. Instead of focusing mainly on homework I need to take at least 45-60 minutes out of my day to accomplish the goal of cardio-walking.

I'm hoping this site and the people I shall meet will keep me motivated in accomplish my health living goals.
