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!

Just remember to start out slow. Couch to 5K is one of the best ways to ease yourself back into it. Forget how you ran before and focus on where you are now That will help you to keep from getting discouraged.

You can do this!

I am 28, and before my two girls 6 years ago I used to run 4 miles a day, without fail. Now, 25 lbs heavier and much more inactive, I am struggling finding the time to workout and have found myself dreading to run since I feel so out of shape. Today, I am going to begin my commitment to change my life for the better.
