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'm ready to get outside too. I do have a hike planned for Wednesday and I've gotten a little skiing in the past few weeks, but it's going to be a while before it's warm enough for my bicycle and such.
Hope you find that you love Sparkpeople as much as I do. It's a great place to find the tools and support to get you just about anywhere you want to go.
Feel free to message me if you need any help finding your way around.
While you are coming up with reasons you can't workout - someone fit is coming up with ways that they can. It all starts in your head.

Hey I'm here! Like everyone else looking to become a healthier person. The number on the scale does not matter, what does matter is how i feel and look. If I have energy to do the things I want to do. I LOVE the gym and would go for hours everyday of i could. I need to match that desire with the desire to eat in a healthy way. I cannot wait for summer and transitioning my cardio work to outdoors. Looking forward to getting fit and healthy with the rest of you!
