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!

Hello,
I'm new and excited to be on this site.
I have Bulging and torn discs in my Lumbar, as well as Disc Degenerative Disease.
After two car accidents in 2005 I managed to get back to normal life in 2008.
Early March of last year (2013), I re injured myself at work moving a 30 pack of beer(Darn Alcoholics!)
Here I am almost a year later and added 30 lbs and still in pain.
Through PT, Chiropractic, Physiatry, and a few random tests for nerve block, I am still not looking good and with my "claim" for work coming to a close because they can do nothing else. I have decided to take matters into my own hands.
I bought a Pain Free Work out by the Egoscue method that I enjoy. I joined a gym and have a fairly simple work out for my core with Stability ball and Bands. I also did Pool Therapy so I intend to work out in the Pool at the gym too.

I am willing to try new exercises and work for safe ways to do Cardio. Which is my Biggest issue. Motivation and the ability to do sustained cardio.

Feel free to inspire, comment, advise!

Thanks Everyone!
