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!

Welcome to Spark People, Necole! You've taken a big positive step by joining this community! I'm sure you'll find lots of good support here. Be sure to join a team or two that shares your needs and interests. Your "Class Team" is a good place to start. The other members can help you set goals and keep accountable as you work towards achieving them. The steps you're taking will impact your children, too - what great motivation for wanting to live a healthier life!

Let me know if I can help in any way!

Blessings today,
Michelle (ZELLAZM0

Blessings, Michelle

HI, im a single mother of 5. I have a set of triplets plus two more I am desperately trying to lose weight I have been through a lot and I have completely fell out of love with myself. Im 5"7 and I weigh 300lbs I don't like my size at all because it makes me very insecure and not to mention it makes dating very difficult I know that you have to love yourself but its so hard to do when your not happy with your appearance. I also want to be healthy for my kids because im the only parent they have. I hope that I can find some support and strength as I embark on this new and difficult journey............THANKS EVERYONE
