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!

Hello!
I'm also just beginning my weight loss (again). I completely understand the stress you are under and congratulate you on your hard work. I just completed graduate school and December and the stress from my dissertation nearly did me in. You can do this!! emoticon We also have similar weight loss goals, so if you need a buddy please feel free to use me! emoticon

Hi everyone,

Going into my final year of law school after the most challenging year of my life. In addition to a third year of school (part time in the evenings) I also work graveyard shift as a casino dealer (full time) and am a full-time husband to my lovely wife and I have two dogs and five cats - yes, including one called Romeo.

I weigh 331 pounds presently, the heaviest I have ever been, and it's time to drop the weight while I still can. I find myself waking up in the middle of the night gasping for air, and I run out of breath too easily for my liking.

So here I am, ready to get my life back and get to a healthier weight.



242 Days until:  Law school graduation
