Hi! I live in Michigan and would love to find other SP friends near me! I am in Oakland County. I am married....with grown kids. I recently started a C25K. Running has never been my strong suit, but I am actually enjoying it! And it's helped me lose 14 lbs so far! Lots more to go, though! :) I turn 50 this year and I don't want to be 50 and fat! So I am on a road to fitness. :)

Hi...I am also new to Sp and also from Michigan. I'm still learning how to navigate Sp.. feel a bit lost. I would love to make some friends and connection. I think it will help give me motivation and accountability.
Be sure to check out some of our great Michigan teams on here. We've got Michigan Girls, Red Wings, Tigers, Lions, Pistons and of course Michigan State and Michigan. Some teams are more active than others, but the more people we get on the teams, the more active we can be! Good luck on your journey!
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 *~
