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!

Welcome to Spark!
I found this chart on WebMD; you can use that to figure out how many calories you need based on your activity level, age, and how much you want to lose. I hope this helps!

Hi there and welcome to spark!! Start with small changes and those can equal big results! Drink your water, get your exercise in and you will see changes. Make sure you join a few teams that interest you and join in on the conversations.

I can't help you with your questions, try and email one of the coaches or join one of the teams and post your questions there. Good luck!!

emoticon Sorry can't help you with the program. I am sure there is another Sparker that can help you with this. Good luck on your journey.

If you make the unconditional commitment to reach your most important goals, if the strength of your decision is sufficient, you will find the way and the power to achieve your goals.

Well I hope I can see this through. Started out weighing 173 down to 170 by cutting my calorie intake and trying to get 30 minutes of some form of exercise in a day. Starting the couch to 5k program today but don't know how many calories I should eat so I don't feel ran down. Trying to stick to 1200 as closely as I can a day right now but I don't think that will be enough from this day on. Please help.
