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. 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.

2. 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!

Hi Kelly,
Welcome to SP! You have come to the right place. SP has so many inspiring and knowledgeable members who will support you on your way to reaching your goals.

The Fitness and Nutrition trackers are great tools here too.
One of the best ways to stay accountable is to be active on your Spark Teams. That's also a good way to make new Spark Friends with those who have similar interests or challenges.

Best of luck to you!

I wish I could say that I did sit at the "cool" lunch table, but alas, I was stricken to a table of goobers known as "the nerd herd." I suppose it was a good thing, as I'm still friends with those nerds 20+ years later! =)

Anyhow, I'm Kelly, 32 and a teacher from Chicago. If you care to read my first blog post, you'll be made privy to the dieting history that has comprised the past 10 years of my life. I'm sure you've all heard it a billion times, but I'm looking for some quality people experiencing the same trials and tribulations as myself, and those who can be a source of support and motivation on this seemingly endless journey.

Drop me a line. Say hello. If anything, I guarantee I'll give you a laugh at some point. emoticon
