Check out the SparkTeams section - there are many groups of people with similar interests to yours (there may be a team or two for divorced folks and families with special issues)......there's nothing like being part of a group of like-minded folks for extra morale support!

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!

I've had a rough year so far with my husband having an affair, asking for a divorce, and my daughter's mental health problems. I have gained a lot of weight and have zero motivation to exercise or eat better. My self esteem is in the toilet, and it's time for me to stop feeling sorry for myself, stop using food for emotional comfort, get off my ass and start working out.
