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!

Good afternoon Tanya,

I quit smoking about 9 months ago by switching to an e-cigarette. It helped with the nicotine withdrawal issues and cut out the carcinogens, helping me to rebuild my ability to breathe freely. Now that I've dramatically reduced my nicotine intake, I've noticed my ability to do cardio has vastly improved. While I'm aiming at losing 45 Lbs, I know the struggle you're going through.

As far as exercise, I'd recommend taking 30 minute walks everyday to build up your cardiovascular strength before pushing yourself too hard and giving up. An issue I've dealt with in the past. I have a dog, so I take her for daily walks through the hills of LA, which helped me with my motivation to do more.

Good luck with your program.

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

Hi my name is Tonya and I am new to the site. I have been overweight for awhile now and it is just getting worse ever since I quit smoking 3 months ago. Now that I was able to kick the smoking habit I now am able to tackle my weight issues. I am looking to lose about 75lbs and would love to know the different opinions of everyone. I just want to be healthy and of course more energetic and more active without it feeling as though it is a struggle.
