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 to spark people... make sure you join teams that are people your age with similar problems and challenges. Exercise plays a part but only if we burn more than we consume.
Don't be afraid to check in with anyone willing to give a little advise... and what is best about this is it is free for you and me.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

Hi, I'm Cathie and I'm looking to loose about 50 pounds by August. Im at 180 right now, so I know its ambitious, but Im going to work my butt off for it! I have a wedding in August that I want to look darn good for! Being in college its super hard, especially with things like late night food runs, constant snacking and alcohol, but I am going to do it! Im setting mini goals monthly to help me along with it! Glad I could come here and get support from everyone!
