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 *~

Hi! My name is Sheryll and I am 27 years old. I weigh way more than I should. I've been through some things over the past 2 years that led to me overeating and gaining a lot of weight. My confidence is sometimes a lot lower than I should be and it is all because of my weight. I don't feel healthy lately and I had finally lost some weight, got pregnant, was so excited, and then miscarried... :-( And, I have gained about 7-10 pounds back since then. I don't like how easy it is to gain weight quickly. I have trouble staying on track and I get comfortable being lazy. I am a full time online student at WSU and I teach piano and singing lessons. Most of the things I do require sitting in one spot and I really want to be more active, I just lose the motivation so easily. I had a weight loss buddy, but she was only around 115 pounds, so she didn't really need to lose any weight and she was much more active than me. She is very supportive, but I am looking for a buddy that is kind of where I am in the process of trying to get healthier. Someone to talk on online or on the phone (I am in NV, I don't care if the person is in another state). Someone that I can share meal plans with, talk about what workouts we did that day, someone that has the time to keep up with me on these things. I really need help getting started. I usually do well for about 5-7 days and then I put those couple of pounds back on once I stop watching what I eat. If there is anyone that is very overweight that is looking for someone to go on this weight loss journey with, let me know! Maybe we can get a few people together! Looking forward to losing weight...
