Welcome aboard.

Motivation is a tough thing. Start building your goals and motivate yourself based on the success of accomplishing them, from the smallest to the largest.

Let us know what we can do to help.

Welcome to Spark! It is a great program with a very supportive community. The biggest motivation for me is to remind myself why I'm doing this. Keep a picture of your dad or something that reminds why you decided to take up this healthy lifestyle journey. I you follow the program it is in stages so it doesn't get overwhelming. Good luck!

Hey there! I am new to this. I am 26 years old and I want/need to become healthier. I see what my dad went through as far as eating unhealthy and not exercising and I do not want to become like that. I am kinda overwhelmed on what I should be doing and where to start. But, I think I took the first step. The only thing I am worried about is the motivation.
