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!

Hello, my name is Angee. I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. I am taking steps for a healthier lifestyle that includes loosing some weight but most importantly just just being healthier and feel better. I decided to join Spark People in order to keep my motivation and focus on my goals. I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes 2 years ago and just recently learned that coronary heart disease is hereditary in my family. To say I am motivated to take better care of my self is a major understatement, I am taking these steps not for myself but for my children. 2014 will be the year that I take control of my health.
