emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
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. 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.

2. 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!

My suggestion to you if it's support you're looking for, find a team (message me if you need help on how to find one) that suits you. If you can find a group of people that you can easily stay in touch with all at once, you'll be more apt to stick with it. That's what I did back in the spring. Then the group had been deactivated (the leader was no longer able to run it since life at home became too hectic to keep it going) and so I had to find another new one. It can take a long time to find the right group of people (LOL I give up easy - so I just started my own LOL). The group, or team, really helps you stay accountable. It's great to talk to someone when you go through a rough patch. It's also great to talk to others about what they did to lose weight. I've found it very helpful when experiencing plateaus because you're more likely to figure out what's causing them if you have a sounding board =]

Welcome on board! I think today is your first day already! Making small steps towards a goal is already a good start.
