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!

Hello, my name is Jess. One of my friends had mentioned spark to me last year, and I finally got myself to log on and check it out. I want to lose a little bit of weight, but don't know where to start. I just moved to out of state, and don't really have people here for support. To be honest, I don't really have a clue about nutrition, but I want to learn. My goal is to be healthier than I am now, and also to be more fit. In high school, I was in JROTC. Once a week, our class was strictly PT, and I felt better about myself during those two years than I ever have. I want to have that feeling of accomplishment and success again. I am looking for people to help support and guide me in the right direction of where I want to be. Part of my being healthier goal is to not only start eating better and exercising more, but also to quit smoking. I have been smoking for 12 years not, and have tried to quit numerous times. If there is anyone willing and able to help me with any one of my three goals, please don't hesitate.
