You have chosen to embark on a great journey to health and fitness and you'll make some great new Spark Friends along the way!
And it's easy if you follow these guidelines...
*Drink your emoticon
*Eat your five servings emoticon
*Track your food and fitness emoticon
*Get in an extra 10 minutes of dancing emoticon
*Get plenty of emoticon
*Believe that you are worth it emoticon
* Keep walking emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

You are not alone on this journey. We do not stand in front or behind but beside each other. You can do this. Don't get down if you make a mistake but get back up and do it again and again until you get it right. It will happen. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but you will do it if you believe in yourself. Find that strength deep inside and bring it out. Don't jump into a decision to quit and then regret it. Even a small victory is a step ahead.

The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!

Never give up what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

First off warmest welcome to Spark People. It's going to be a hard journey but stay committed & consistent. Log your fitness, food & sleep. Search this site for recipes and plan meals for the week...Food prep is a big key. Tupperware or brown bagging works. It's about 80% is nutrition and the rest is activity. Try something new whether it be food or activity. In order for your body to change you have to change your mind. Listen if you need an accountability partner let me know. Stay committed in this journey!!!

loving WHAT you do is much more important that WHAT you do

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. 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.

2. 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!

By joining SP you made the first step on your journey to better health!
Tracking your nutrition and exercise/activities on the "my Nutrition" and "myFitiness" trackers is key to success. Familiarize yourself with it and use it daily. Also, get active! Join a SparkPeople team of your interest for great challenges to get you started. There is a team for everyone, no matter how much we weigh or what our physical abilities are. Team members offer an abundance of support, encouragement, and advice. I invite you to visit my SparkPage. I'm confident you will succeed in reaching your goals!
