emoticon Congratulations on your success! I think the best advice is to make changes that you can live with in the long term. It may take longer to take the weight off but it'll stay off. Good luck!

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!

Hi and welcome to SP! I would suggest joining a sparkteam...go to the top of the page and put your cursor over the button that says "community" then in the drop down box click "sparkteams" there you can find ones with like interests and/or goals...

I did search for one that was about Yoli but they don't have one right now...probably cause it is so new. I don't know anything about it either but you may find someone in the message boards under Fitness and Exercise here:

Hello Everyone. I am Alison, a 30 year old mother of 3 beautiful children (5,6,and 9), and a wife to a great husband. I am working 40 hours a week as an RN. I have recently joined the newest craze Yoli and have lost about 9 inches and 8-9 lbs. I have 8 lbs until my goal weight and I am hitting a plateau. I am hoping that Spark can get me over the hump. Please help in keeping my motivation up. I get tired of the same old routines and I get exhausted easily after working full time and coming home and being a wife/ mother for the rest of my waking hours. I am excited to be a part of the Spark community.
