Find a local Spark friend. It helps so much to have a real, live person you can call up to go for a walk with, or a run, who can tell you where to find the best organic beets (or whatever), who understands the weather you are dealing with, and who lives close enough to see often. It really helps!
I have many local Spark friends with whom I can run, have dinner, shop for fitness gear, or just hang out. And seeing them in races, even if they are faster than I am!, is so much fun! Afterward we can all talk about the fun and tough parts, laugh, and congratulate each other. They are priceless!

I have been Sparking since 2007 and I fnd the more active I get with other Sparkers, the more motivation I get. The more motivation I get, my chances rise substantially that I will stay healthy using the new healthy habits I have learned!
Brand new, new or having problems finding something on Spark? Ask your Spark Friends. They are ALWAYS happy 2 help someone become better able 2 navigate around the Spark universe. You don't have a Spark Friend? Well, 2 use someone else's phrase, just "Reach out and touch someone". It is really
that easy 2 make a Spark Friend. Remember, WE ARE ALL HERE FOR THE SAME REASON and we know how you feel. Shy? Just put out a hand. Sparkers are totally awesome! They can't know you need assistance until you ask (I know that's inconvenient, but telepathy doesn't travel well with electricity!).
