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. 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!

“When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance.

The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will.”

Hi and welcome to Sparkpeople. Congrats on making this move toward a healthier YOU! By controlling your food intake, drinking plenty of water and getting exercise, you will make a difference. Also, joining teams here on Spark will give you added encouragement, motivation and support. Check out the teams shown on my page and consider joining or do a search for ones of your interest. We'd love to have you! If I can be of any help, just shoot me an email and I will do what I can to help.

You might consider setting up a sparkpage, so that others can stop by and leave encouragement & support!

I have tried so many things in the past and failed...the reason I'm starting this today is I thought I was happy with the way I looked till I saw a picture of myself at a family get together n omg lol. I hope to lose 84lbs over the next year. Cant wait to get to know some of you. Hugs x
