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. 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!

Hi! I am new so I thought I would introduce myself. I am 29, mom of two. I have been fat either in my head or in real life for as long as I can remember. In October of last year I decided that I was done feeling bad about myself. Since then I have lost 72lbs. I still have a long ways to go. I am hoping SparkPeople will keep me motivated and engaged in my journey. Of late I have been bored with my diet and workout plan. For the past month I have been on the maintain or gain train. :(
I am looking forward to re-focusing. My goal is 25 lbs by Thanksgiving. That will take a lot of determination! I am hoping to be at my goal weight by my 30th birthday. I know I can do it!
