WELCOME TO SPARK!!! 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! *~ Paula *~

Good morning Sparkers! I am back again on SP. This is my 3rd attempt this year. I need to lose 52lbs. I am a runner, I started running in Jan. So I know my diet requirements are different than others who are losing weight, I just need to figure all of that out. I also have to do meals in a way that the rest of the family will also eat them, so any advice there would be much appreciated. My diet is probably my biggest obstacle, because I am working out almost 5 days a week, and drinking a ton of water. I also need to be tracking body measurements, as the scale won't show inches. I also had to cancel my gym membership, due to the cost, so I am now going to have to rely mainly on the running and videos. The only real downfall to the missing the Gym is Zumba :( My dear friend teaches the class I love and we have become so close during the year and a half I had my membership.
Anyway, I'm glad to be back on SP and would welcome anyone who wants to add me as a friend!
