If yours is the billionth at 21, mine must be the trillionth! LOL!
As you go through the daily exercises you will learn more and more about the site and get to know people. I would recommend starting your own spark page and joining some of the spark teams (in community section) to interact with folks of the same interest IE: #'s to lose, hobbies, hometowns.
Onward & Downward!

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 *~

Hey everyone! My name is Amirah I'm 21 years old. I'm a mother of two, full time student and a full time employee. I've been trying to lose weight almost all my life and I've only been successful once, and gained it all back :( This time I just NEED to be successful. I'm young and I just want to be happy with what I see in the mirror. I'd love some support and maybe even work with some of you closely and we can help each other :)
