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!

You can do it, Jess. Just take it one meal at a time. We've all let ourselves down. But, we can all pick ourselves back up. Good luck!

Hey everyone! I'm Jess, once upon a time I was fit and healthy. I got married, had a baby, blinked and I was 100 lbs over weight. *sigh*
I've spent the last 5 years in this whirlwind of gaining weight, trying to lose weight, gaining it back and feeling terrible about myself. It got really bad after I had my son, I spent all of my energy and focus on him and my family and just put myself and my health on the back burner. Somethings gotta give here so I decided to rejoin Spark for some motivation and accountability. I'm looking forward to this journey and hopefully making some friends/motivation buddies along the way!
