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 *~

Hello! I have never tried to diet before because I tried not to worry much about my weight. Since my son moved far away in May I started eating ice cream, every night and a lot! Now that urge has passed but I have gained 10 lbs. I hope to give and receive support from other people in trying to eat healthier, gain energy and stay positive. Since this seems to be a difficult change and lonely too I am hoping to meet some companions on this new road. I am 54 and live with my husband and our dog. I raised three kids who seem to be doing quite well on their own. It is time for me to pay attention to my life now!
