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 joined earlier in the week. I also just got a FitBit and having a lot of fun with it. It's definitely causing me to get out and move more.
Still finding my way around this site but so far I really like. I've been on various other sites, some free, some pay and this one is by far the most comprehensive with such a beautiful look and feel.
I've never liked the idea of food tracking, really doesn't appeal to me. But this site is making it easy and interesting to track nutrition. It's also very thrilling with automatically coordinate activity level to find that moving around a lot means being able to enjoy more yummy food guilt free. 20,000 steps means about another 1,000 calories!
I would love to have more friends to connect with, feel free to add and inbox me :)
