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 *~

I know a woman from YouTube who went to Costa Rica (San Jose) and had weight loss surgery there from a doctor & then she went back and had a tummy tuck, so there are lots of good medical people in Central America.
Don't quit and you will get to your goal.

Hi there, my name is Laura, I am from Honduras(Central America; yep, right below Mexico). I'm 19yrs old and currently weight 235lbs. I have struggled with my weight my whole life and find myself desperate for a way out. Since I'm kind of a google search addict, I continuosly look for crash diets, diet programs, motivational pages and so today I found out abt Spark People. Truth is I find the page really inspiring, I feel its a great idea ans hope people here can help me succeed in reaching my goals. Any one who has any advice/comments/questions, please ask!! More than happy to chat:)
