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 Laura! I agree a great way to meet people is to join teams, you can search by hobby, location, age, how much weight you want to lose ect so there is literally a team for everyone! Tv used to be a big issue for me too but I found the more I sat around the more that's all I felt like doing! A body in motion tends to stay in motion, start small make yourself walk in place during the commercials or some other little spurt of exercise (squats, jumping jacks, crunches ect) it's a good place to begin. Good luck with your journey!

Strive for progress not perfection!

emoticon Laura. You've come to the right place for information, help, support and encouragement. I recommend using the fitness and nutrition trackers. They really help keep you on track. A good way to meet friends is to join a team. There are many to choose from. Just go up and click on the community tab at the top of the page and then click on teams.

Wishing you much success and cheering you on.

Hi everyone, just learning how to navigate the site;
I need to loose 50 lbs, meet people, go out more.
I'm semi retired, hubby still works, so i spend most of my days
by my self, its nice but sometimes gets boring, i end up watching too much tv,
eat, think too much.
Actually there is always something to do, just don't feel like doing it.
My most happy times are when on holidays at the beach or out listening to music,
having a beer. I enjoy my family time but it can be stressful, so i like to be with hubby most of all.
Hopefully i will meet some people here and have a bit of fun.
Thank You
Laura
