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. 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! *~ Paula *~

Welcome to Spark People!
May I suggest making your spark page - and making it public - so that other members can interact with you and offer you more support.
Msg me if I can be of any help

MADDIEBPHOTO and to SparkPeople...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
Welcome, Andrea! My words of advice are simple...Exercise, eat, track, repeat.

Welcome to Spark! There is something for everyone here so I am sure you will feel right at home. I am sure there is even a spark team for other women who are trying to get pregnant. Take advantage of all that Spark has to offer and you are sure to be successful!
I'm Andrea, a stay-at-home-mom/wife & photographer. I've lost a total of 90lbs in the last 2 years, and I'm looking for accountability to lose the last 5. We are in the middle of fertility treatments so I'd like to drop this weight quickly so I start out my pregnancy at the lowest weight possible.
Looking forward to chatting & getting to know you all.
