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!

This is a great site with lots of information to help you on this new lifestyle change.

Don't try to make a lot of changes at one time. Small changes done consistently will add up to lost inches and weight.

emoticon and you can reach your goal.

Your SparkFriend,
Danielle

I joined the site yesterday and was shocked at how much I was really eating over the day after I tracked my food online. Today I did much better, but needed to eat more carbs. Hey, I was glad for some real feedback right away. It helps me to think about how to stay on track.

I'm excited to be here and I look forward to getting to know some of you online and see if we can help each other to get fit and be healthy.

Janet
