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 and welcome to Sparkpeople! You can to the right place for support!

I think everyone is an individual and what works for one may not work for the next. I think you need to find what works for you and run with it!

If you need a buddy to walk through this weight loss journey with, let me know!

Have a great day!

I joined to help motivate and organize my attempt at changing my lifestyle. I've used previous apps and websites, and they did keep my efforts at the forefront - but it didn't stick. I want to change one thing at a time for it to stick as my new lifestyle. I live in a beautiful state and have no excuse not to use it to my advantage. My mother swears the community feeling she has going to the gym is a new passion for her. So here's to trying it out :)
