The one thing that has helped me (at least this time around - I myself am redoing this journey after a few stops and restarts) is to not feel you have to take on all your issues in one fell swoop........in fact, that approach has caused me more trouble than it was worth.......take it easy and at your one pace, and perhaps for now focus on one specific area that you want to work on........"baby steps", you know......

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!

Hey all! Just signed up today. I live in Kingston, ON, and am looking to drop about 50-60lbs, as well as develop healthier eating habits (e.g. less meat, fewer processed carbohydrates, more green veggies, etc.) and better exercise habits. Any tips? Look forward to meeting some folks on here!
