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!

emoticon My advice is watch the portion sizes. Even if you ate whatever you currently eat with reduced portion sizes you would lose weight. Of course try to improve nutrition when you can. Check out the recipe section, there are lots of crock pot ideas that might be of interest to you.

Hi Ariana. Great name! Check out the videos link at the top for chair exercises, etc. And check out the Nutrition link where you will find tons of great recipes. There is some good stuff in there. Have fun!

My name is Ariana and I am just starting. I have a lot of weight to lose and a tight budget. I work at night so my eating habits need to change. I am physically limited due to a former car accident. I need to lose almost half of my weight. Any suggestions would be helpful on chair exercises, meals on a budget, crockpot meals, and meals outside the home. Even though I know I can not lose the weight over night, I would like to see some results by the end of the year, like about 15 pounds. I am about 335 pounds and need to be around 175-185 pounds. I signed up awhile ago and did nothing on this site, but now I feel that it is time to do something before I have major medical problems. I am hoping that with encouragement, tips, and understanding from the group here, I will achieve my goal and have a healthier life.
