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 *~

Sounds familiar to what I go through. I get so excited and buy all this equipment to forget about it next week. "Why exercise now if I know I won't exercise later?"
And the eating.. Ugh. I will find any reason to eat. That's why I'm trying to stock up with as much fruit as I can possibly can so that when I do binge, it's nothing that'll hurt me later on.

Have had 9 major orthopedic surgeries and keep recovering and pushing through the exercise but I consistently sabotage by overeating. I eat when I am happy, sad, angry you name it. If I listen to Paul McKinna's apps I do great but then i quit for some really made-up excuse. I wear a fitbit flex and love it but find the web site does not meet my needs, so here I am. I love to bike and ride a recumbent bike. Today I did 12 miles and feel great so I am off to a good start. i listened to Paul also. Weight loss this year has been 18 pounds. I just need to not have the binges !
