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 *~

Hi I'm Becky from near Austin, TX. I'm married almost 4 years to a wonderful man and we have a go-getter cat, Izme. I'm a church pianist, my husband is a sound tech and he is a great help and encourager, even when he bakes.
I quit my job to care for my elderly parents who moved in with us more than a year ago. They are mentally active and want to go places but, at times, it's difficult for them. My Mom still plays an mean alto sax at 89! I'm blessed to have them.
I'm here because I understand how much it helps to have others who have experienced similar needs. I often find it much easier to crochet, knit or cross stitch than to get up and MOVE! I want to stay active and healthy for myself and for the rest of this household. I've already begun to exercise a little and try to cook healthy meals for everyone.
I'm excited at what I've already seen and read here. and looking forward to each new day.
