Welcome to Spark and the team, April. I'm so glad you found us! There are a lot of tools and resources available here to help us on our journey; my favorites are the fitness and nutrition trackers because the keep me on track and accountable every day. But the best part of Spark is the community, the people here are amazing! I'd suggest starting up a Sparkpage, it helps people keep in touch with you and to help encourage you.
Keep your goals in focus, put in the work and you will succeed!
To give freely without expectation is a true gift.

Welcome to our team April! This healthier you journey you are jumping into doesn't have to be hard. ;) take baby steps. Set some reachable goals and go for them. Don't try to change everything overnight. The 10 lb idea that sleepygirl has is a good one! :) choose just a couple things you want to work on. Once those are easy, add something else.
Sleepygirl - nice to see you back! :)
Everyone - make sure to give yourself permission to be absolutely amazing!
