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!

Hi all -
I'm Ann. I'm a rising second year graduate student (out of 3 years) at the University of Maryland studying History and Library Science. My senior year in undergrad I spent in Wales and walked around everywhere. I returned to the U.S., moved halfway across the country, started grad school, worked 35 hours a week and ate a lot. So it came as no surprise that I managed to gain 30 pounds in the past year.

I'm hear because doing it alone I haven't succeeded in the past. I know I need the support and the guidance to get over this hurdle to a healthier lifestyle. It's going to be a challenge but I think I'm finally fed up enough to go after it and keep it up. Plus, I'm going to be the maid of honor (and only bridesmaid) in my sister's wedding in August 2015 and I would like to feel good about how I look in the photos.

All the best!
