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 *~

I think that this is a wonderful place and the only place that has really helped me. Look around. You might be interested in joining some "Challenge" teams so that you will get extra encouragement and motivation on your weight-loss path. I always find that using the trackers helps to keep me honest and knowing that I will track my exercise always makes me want to get in another 5 or 10 minutes. Knowing that I will track my food helps me to choose a friendly carrot instead of a more ominous choice.
Hey everyone! I lost 40 plus pounds on the Dukan Diet, and unfortunately gained about 10 back during winter and holidays.... I found SparkPeople and am LOVING the food tracker as I don't think I can do Dukan again since I'm so tired of meat!!! Anyhow, I like things in black and white with not much guesswork, so with this counter, so far, so good! I'm lean, just not at my "happy weight" so looking forward to trying it this way from now on!
