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 *~

My name is Melissa and I live in AZ with my 17 month old son. I lost almost 30 lbs after I had my son and was so excited. However in the past year it has been creeping back. Thankfully I have only gained back 10 lbs. Having said all that I still need to lose 75lbs to be at my goal. I am a single mom and work full time at a desk job. I know anything I say about not exercising is an excuse, but I just cannot make myself even just go for a walk. I have noticed though since I joined spark and started tracking my food with myfitnesspal on my phone I have been more active. The past two nights I have been chasing my son around the back yard. I think im on the right track to make this time a success. I hope to continue to use this site and my tracker as tools to my success.
