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 there!! Don't ever give up! From experience, I did and I am now in a place I don't want to be and have been stuck here for a number of years because I kept letting myself give up. You are important. I have finally learned that. I am important. Health is important. The only way to have good health is to eat well ("clean"), exercise and take care of yourself. If you do not do these things, you will not be 100% for your family or, most importantly, yourself. I always let everyone and everything come before me. I have finally figured out I need to come first. I know it's tough when you have kids. I've been there. Don't make my mistake. This is a great site. I'm back because I know I will find the encouragement and support I need. Welcome from another Newbie (again)!!

If it is to be, it is up to me.

Iím new to everything healthy. For me for my kids and family and I just started exercising last week. I hope to find support and encouragement when I start feeling like giving up.
