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 *~

Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.
I would rather be known in life as an honest sinner than a lying hypocrite.

Hello! My name is Felicia but I am known as DeafMermaid because I was born with deafness. I can speak since I use hearing aids to communicate. So i am new here and trying to find some support in my system of weight loss. I am trying to lose over 75 pounds because I have been overweight for 10 years now. I am frustrating and I could not find anyone that understands how I feel with being overweight. My family wasn't really that supportive about my weight because none of them would experience of obesity like I did. I hoped I would meet new people here and understand more about obesity with fitness plans. I am very friendly and you can check my sparkpage anytime. I would like to meet any of you that understands and accept who I am since I revealed about my deafness :)
