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 *~

RENEEANN, you sure have the right attitude. It is not a diet site it is a healthy living site. We all should be taking care of our bodies. I hope you are using your tracker, I am certain that is what helped me to get off medications for diabetes and blood pressure and I walk as much as I can, WELL done !!!

Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.

Hello to my new family of supporters. I have just started with sparks people and I am excited. I have really gotten pumped up. I am in my second day. I have hit all my goals. I think the site is amazing. I have decided that I want to be healthy so I can set out to do what God has in store for me. I have been ignoring all the health problems cropping up and expecting God to fix it . Guess what this is my baby. I created the problem now it is time to own up to what I have done to my self and know that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. He will bring me through this battle just like he has before. I have to do the work though. Thanks for listening. Please pray for me to have the strength and courage to continue to make it this happen.
