Welcome to Sparkpeople. Be sure to take advantage of all the great free online sources available here, such as the nutrition and fitness trackers. Also, the online community is great. We are all here to offer support when you need it, or celebrate your successes with you.

Here are some links that will help you navigate the site and get started!

* SparkPeople's User Guide:

* New Member Tutorial Videos:

* For Additional Motivation:

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

Saskatchewan Time Zone

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Hi, all!

My name is Christina. I am a Canadian stay at home Mom of a 5 and 6 year old. I grew up in NS, but now live in MB. We are in the process of getting my son diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I suffer from social anxiety and have only recently begun leaving my home to meet other people. My husband suffers from depression and anxiety & works at Hooters as a manager. I volunteer at my children's school a couple of times a week, and I am also an executive member of the board for my local community center. I keep busy!

I have been on Spark before and failed miserably. I have decided that this time I am going to do this FOR SURE. No more excuses. No more procrastinating. I WILL do this. I have to. My health/size is killing my confidence, happiness, marriage, etc. And I won't have it anymore! I am taking a stand and taking control of my life and destiny. THIS IS IT.

That being said, I am the type who needs lots of encouragement and support in order to accomplish anything as I tend to procrastinate like you wouldn't believe! No matter how much I want something, I can ALWAYS find a reason to not do it. I don't want to do that anymore.

So any and all encouragement/support is welcomed with open arms!

Feeling the pain and frustration of repeated failure...
I think I can! I think I can!
It's the letdowns in our lives that make us stronger.
