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!

Welcome! You came to a wonderful supportive site to help you out on this journey. Get involved with your class Sparkteam (look under the "community" tab above. Join other groups to meet others with common interests. Get involved! Studies have shown that those most involved in the community are most successful.

Also create your Sparkpage. Not only is it fun and lets you be creative, but when you make it public, it allows others to 'friend' you and to encourage you and support you on a personal level.

Please, let me know if I can help you in any way.

Hello everyone!

I'm (obviously!) new to SP! So far trying to just get used to the site, SO overwhelming, but I'll get used to it. I was using fitnesspal, but I'm finding this to be A LOT more resourceful, especially for the community aspect. I am getting married in November 2014. I have been wanting to lose the weight I've gained over the past four years(over 50 pounds) I've tried off and on, but now I feel after being humiliated by my GI doctor about how "fat" I was ...ENOUGH is ENOUGH. I came here to look for actual support because I don't think I can do it alone! :)
Here's to a great 2014!
